Pros

If you work hard and apply yourself, you can build a career.

Cons

New hires tend to be paid more than experienced staff who have the same job title (salaried non-exempt), so moving up the ladder is critical to making decent money.

    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.
