    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Covidien as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    A very few managers really do care about their reports

    Cons

    Too many managers, directors, and principals that don't have a clue how to run manufacturing business

    Advice to Management

    Stop the nepotism & hiring from state schools - get some real talent. Recent implementation of product/process development controls is a disaster - too inflexible and cumbersome to get things done in a timely fashion. One size does not fit all, Jose A.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Large responabilities, very involved with the front line of product development of new products, get to design actual products by yourself and with team members. Get to take part in the management and meeting side of engineering as well as manufacturing and R&D. Very flexible with school schedules and classes.

    Cons

    I cannot come up with a single con for this company. It is a great place to work and everyone is really friendly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
