Medical Company
Lab Technician (Former Employee), North Haven, CTNovember 19, 2014
It's a typical medical company environment. Clean rooms are a must but if working for engineers, the supervisors are little bit more lenient.

Good pay and coworkers, no job security
analyst (Former Employee), Hazelwood, MONovember 16, 2014
Pros: good benefits, caring coworkers, rich history
Cons: upper management, constant downsizing
Worked for this company for 20+ years. In the beginning it was a good company that cared about the employee. Once Tyco took over in 2000, the culture changed dramatically and some of the perks gradually began to disappear. The company began promoting people to executive level positions based on their financial experience and as a result there were people – more... in management who had zero to little management skills and made poor managers. Organization is too top heavy with executives and not enough middle to lower level workers. Moral was low at the end and the current CEO has no solid vision or interest in restoring Mallinckrodt to the awesome company it used to be. The employees are the best part of what's left. – less

Quality Control Inspector. (Former Employee), Irvine, CAOctober 29, 2014
Pros: free in-n_out sometimes for everyone
Cons: not enough time to gown up and ungown breaks are only 15 min. it takes 7 min to gown up, leaves you with 8 actual min for you breaks
Typical day consist of inspecting chathaters per QP and MP. Everyone was really nice, made it easy to go to work and enjoy the day. Constantly learning something new. Witch keeps you on your toes. What i enjoyed the most was the activities Covidien has, like jog a thon for stroke awareness, at Angel Stadium.

Good Learning Environment, Limited Promotion Potential
Senior Supply Chain Planner (Current Employee), Boulder, COOctober 28, 2014
Pros: a lot of exposure to different parts of the business, competitive pay and benefits, flexible work schedule
Cons: limited promotion potential, high stress, heavy work load
This position has proven to be challenging with a lot of opportunities to learn the business, however promotion potential is very limited. Senior leadership seems to be promoted in place with little to no change in status of employees. It is a big company though, so there are opportunities to relocate for other jobs / promotions. Also, management is – more... fairly flexible on schedules and working remotely – less
