    I worked at Covidien full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Site managers were generally very good, focused on achieving good customer outcomes.

    Cons

    New people were often promoted quickly, but did not stay in Boulder (or Covidien) for longer than 4 years. That included the Division CEO(s)!

    Advice to Management

    The many training and development programs didn't really lead to any tangible opportunities at Covidien. I hope the Shanghai manufacturing facility is in the black- when I visited there in 2009 it was a shell of a factory, after shutting down the Gold rated Watertown, NY facility.
