    I worked at Covidien full-time

    Pros

    1. Interesting work making vital health care products. Latitude to run shift your way. 2. Good benefits and bonus.

    Cons

    1. Working periodic weekend shifts (12 hours each day, 24 total) for no extra pay or comp time. Same applies to all overtime, which is frequent. 2. Management working in opposition to one another. 3. When interviewing, I was told that there are many opportunities for advancement. After a couple years, I asked about advancement opportunities and was told to seek elsewhere for that. So I did and quit.

    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Cabinteely, Dublin

    I worked at Covidien full-time

    Pros

    Please note, the department where I was working has been made redundant, so the review I am giving only reflects a previous situation. Nice company culture in friendly atmosphere with good facilities. Work shift gives possibility to avoid the worst of traffic, spacious desk, nice colleagues. Good benefits such as healthcare, pension scheme and good salary

    Cons

    Some possibilities for career growth, but not too many. Colleagues that don't contribute are not always reprimanded, which is frustrating for those who really try to do their best.
