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

Pros

Lots of opportunities to advance and a strong healthcare culture. I have met so many amazing colleagues and people are willing to share their expertise. I am proud to work for Covidien and plan to stay here for years to come!

Cons

The pace at Covidien is not for everyone. The company expects a lot and I've had to work harder here than at any other job.

Advice to Management

Continue to invest in your people so that we grow with the organization.

    I have been working at Covidien full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits. Healthcare was nice. Vacation time good. Closes at Christmas.

    Cons

    Middle management is arrogant. They can be very difficult to work with. They don't like there employees to be involved in company sponsored events. Work only, no fun.

    Advice to Management

    Middle management needs to be reviewed.


  2. "No communication"

    I worked at Covidien full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This location retained much of its small company culture after acquisition.

    Cons

    Virtually no communication from corporate, and some (perhaps even much) of the information we got was not even honest.

    Reorganizations happened more than annually--this seems completely excessive for a company that was not in a distressed situation.

    Advice to Management

    Learn some integrity! A refusal to communicate honestly with employees indicates a lack of respect at best, or worse, some sort of fear that something bad would happen if you did.
