    I have been working at Covidien as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    A very few managers really do care about their reports

    Cons

    Too many managers, directors, and principals that don't have a clue how to run manufacturing business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the nepotism & hiring from state schools - get some real talent. Recent implementation of product/process development controls is a disaster - too inflexible and cumbersome to get things done in a timely fashion. One size does not fit all, Jose A.

    I have been working at Covidien

    Pros

    Health Insurance, Bonus(which you have to jump through hoops for) ,annual salary increase(this is a joke as it never matches inflation.

    Cons

    The constant bullying environment. No need for it. Talk of a union being brought in due to this which is a shame as was a great place to work afew years ago. People not treated equally. No training provided unless you,re in the click.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote on performance based over a long period of time instead of someone upping their game when told of one coming by the Supervisor(yes they do have their favourites).

    Doesn't Recommend
