    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Covidien full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.
