    I worked at Covidien full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and salaries are high.

    Cons

    Long hours, no work/life balance, there are many individuals at the Director level that are ineffective. Micro-managing, negative, defensive. Having the headquarters out of state slows the process down to a crawl. The company spends a ton of money on their sales teams, the national sales meetings are outrageous with bands and videos. Invest the money on all employees, not just those who attend these meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the individuals that are doing the heavy lifting of work. Don't assume Directors are effective just because they have been in the role for years. Their style of management is very 1980's leading through intimidation and fear.
