    I worked at Covidien as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The opportunities to learn from astute coworkers is definitely there, and the facility was nice. The place is secure.

    Cons

    The Carlsbad respiratory division is composed of the nastiest people you will ever meet or know. All they did was try to get other co-workers fired from their jobs by either filing inaccurate or misleading complaints (equivocations) or hopping on their co-workers' computer while they were away and writing nasty e-mails to the supervisors/managers under the disguise of their co-workers e-mail address. Just disgusting people. Also, they didn't follow their own ComplianceWire policies which they forced their employees to learn (and pass tests on). Instead, if anyone is caught adhering to corporate policy for safety through ComplianceWire, they were immediately fired.

    Advice to Management

    Stop believing the equivocations of childish complaints by nefarious children manipulating the management into believing a false story, or misleading/deceiving the management in an attempt to get their co-workers fired, thinking it was funny. How about listening to both sides of the story? This is a case of the naive victims, the despicable co-workers, and the obtuse boss taken for a ride.

    I worked at Covidien full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Knowledgeable, helpful professional staff. Very nice facilities.

    Cons

    Covidien has begun outsourcing a number of professional positions at HQ, and the trend is likely to continue.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and appreciate the talent you have and cultivate long-term success in stead of chasing short-term cost savings.
