    Pros

    Prior to acquisition by Medtronic Covidien was probably the best company I worked for in my 30 years as an IT professional. Great leadership, treated employees very, substantial benefits. Some of this has transitioned to the new company, some not in my opinion.

    Cons

    Generally a lack of sufficient personnel to perform tasks so there were a lot of long days and sometimes weekends.

    Pros

    Great company to work for with excellent benefits. Superb training ground for medical sales.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is incredibly challenging. Also, senior leadership does not look out for front line reps. Upward mobility is driven by company politics, rather than merit.

    Advice to Management

    Emphasize merit when comparing applicants for promotion.
