    I have been working at Covidien full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people at Covidien are great to work with. Hours and location of work are very flexible depending on you position within the company.

    Cons

    Company is very unorganized. Each plant is silo'd from the others with very little communication in between plants. Covidien does not follow many FDA and OSHA regulations. They know this and refuse to fix most of them. THere are no processes, everything there is tribal knowledge at best.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who are actually capable of performing their jobs.

    I worked at Covidien full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Medical devices is an interesting industry; compensation is good, strong financial performance; great products.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment where only certain highly-valued employees will advance; opinions of others are not valued or desired. If you don't fit "the mold" eventually you will be made to want to leave. People get ahead by making sure others look bad and other highly-political moves. The organizational dysfunction is the worst I have ever seen. Somehow out of this great products are born.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take everything so seriously...life is too short to not have fun.
