Pros

Covidien provides opportunity for grow and development.

Cons

Too much tension, not enough people to do all the work, lack of support.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give us more support and motivate us better. Show us that you care about employees because many of them don't feel like they are the most important aspect of the comapny.

    Current Employee - Engineer II

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

    Pros

    - Well-run company uses industry-wide best-practices. Great opportunity for someone new to the industry to learn quickly.
    - Lot's of training opportunities (six sigma, leadership, etc.)
    - Bonus and merit increases every year.

    Cons

    As would be expected in large cap medtech:
    - bureaucratic.
    - too many people involved in everything.
    - highly risk averse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company appears to be well-managed. Prospering above the industry average under headwinds in the business environment.

    Pros

    Don't say you weren't warned !
    They do layoffs without a second thought. They don't care about their employees. Top layers protect each other.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional, toxic, back-woods culture. Below-average pay, poor benefits and the terrible leadership. Place is rotten from top down. In a business, you usually see a bad apple here and there. At Covidien-Hazelwood, you see nothing but bad and ineffective managers, directors, VP's, etc. Top heavy beyond belief. Silo's left and right. No interest in doing the right things. They just want to do stuff because the appearance of doing work is rewarded, not doing the right work. Read the reviews and you see a common thread in that the young interns are the only ones giving mediocre or above average reviews.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. You wouldn't know a good idea under any circumstances.
