Pros

Covidien has some great products on the Endovenous side of the business. Strong field sales groups before the layoffs in October 2012.

Cons

Employees are treated like a number. It doesn't matter how well you perform your job or awards you have won when they cut/layoff you are still just a number.
Marketing has missed the "mark" so many times. Always chasing the competition and missing prime opportunities.

Advice to Management

Realize talent when you have it. Remove dead weight. Just because someone lives in the correct area doesn't mean they are doing a great job. You cut the wrong people.

    Pros

    6% 401K match, employee stock purchase program, 3 weeks of vacation.

    Cons

    Zero opportunity for advancement, bonus payout is a joke, toxic finger-pointing culture, pay raises that do no keep up with inflation, certain members of senior management are unethical and incompetent. Overall this is a dead end job at a company that invests absolutely nothing in its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Change current senior management at the Atlanta DC

    Pros

    Chance to work through the ranks to become a valued profeaional. Good benefits with decent pay.

    Cons

    A ton of bureaucracy. Nothing can be done quickly and on time. This is on a plant level as well as corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the peolple on the line when they tell you somthing. They are the ones with the most knowledge of the processes.
