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.

    I worked at Covidien full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    No GPS in Company car so their current field service techs can continue going home early without any worries, cell phone, some good coworkers, and a paycheck. This once was a good reputable company to work for.......once.

    Cons

    Lay offs, micro managing, im so happy you rather spend millions on having your name on the boston sux green monster and the patriots, upper management does not care about service, last respiratory equipment created was 11 + years ago, new equipment keeps getting post poned, working hard and efficency has nothing to do with you keeping your job. Carlsbad people that facility will be closing soon. More cuts will continue......this is not a lean six sigma company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customer are always number one, without prompt "service", you are simply saying you dont care about your customers. FYI....without customers you are nothing.

    I have been working at Covidien

    Pros

    Many of the associates would like to do more

    Cons

    Company does not allow initiative. Follow old rules and methods and do not rock the boat. Thus lots of turnover in 2010
