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 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

    I worked at Covidien full-time for more than 3 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
