I have been working at Covidien full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- Well-run company uses industry-wide best-practices. Great opportunity for someone new to the industry to learn quickly.
- Lot's of training opportunities (six sigma, leadership, etc.)
- Bonus and merit increases every year.

Cons

As would be expected in large cap medtech:
- bureaucratic.
- too many people involved in everything.
- highly risk averse.

Advice to Management

Company appears to be well-managed. Prospering above the industry average under headwinds in the business environment.

    I worked at Covidien full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    No GPS in Company car so their current field service techs can continue going home early without any worries, cell phone, some good coworkers, and a paycheck. This once was a good reputable company to work for.......once.

    Cons

    Lay offs, micro managing, im so happy you rather spend millions on having your name on the boston sux green monster and the patriots, upper management does not care about service, last respiratory equipment created was 11 + years ago, new equipment keeps getting post poned, working hard and efficency has nothing to do with you keeping your job. Carlsbad people that facility will be closing soon. More cuts will continue......this is not a lean six sigma company

    Advice to Management

    Customer are always number one, without prompt "service", you are simply saying you dont care about your customers. FYI....without customers you are nothing.
