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

Pros

Covidien provides opportunity for grow and development.

Cons

Too much tension, not enough people to do all the work, lack of support.

Advice to Management

Give us more support and motivate us better. Show us that you care about employees because many of them don't feel like they are the most important aspect of the comapny.

    Pros

    Many of the associates would like to do more

    Cons

    Company does not allow initiative. Follow old rules and methods and do not rock the boat. Thus lots of turnover in 2010

    "Toxic culture throughout HQ and Sites. Incompetent Management. Under no circumstance consider them. Getting worse!!"

    Pros

    Don't say you weren't warned !
    They do layoffs without a second thought. They don't care about their employees. Top layers protect each other.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional, toxic, back-woods culture. Below-average pay, poor benefits and the terrible leadership. Place is rotten from top down. In a business, you usually see a bad apple here and there. At Covidien-Hazelwood, you see nothing but bad and ineffective managers, directors, VP's, etc. Top heavy beyond belief. Silo's left and right. No interest in doing the right things. They just want to do stuff because the appearance of doing work is rewarded, not doing the right work. Read the reviews and you see a common thread in that the young interns are the only ones giving mediocre or above average reviews.

    Advice to Management

    None. You wouldn't know a good idea under any circumstances.
