Regional Accounts Specialist (CSR) III (Current Employee), Mansfield, MADecember 28, 2013
Pros: vacation time is good
Cons: scheduled breaks and not being able to get up from your desk
The day starts with answering the phone lines and helping customers with order placement and inquiries. Replying to emails for our Sales Force and helping them meet the needs of our customers. There are deadlines to meet for month end, quarter end and year end for the Sales Force budgets and making sure all orders are processed.

I have learned to listen – more... to our customers and our inside customers as well and making sure they know their needs will be met and any follow up that may be needed will happen in a timely mannor.

Management as a whole is okay.

I feel that I am part of a team with the people that I work with and we have a goal of making sure our customers come first.

The hardest part of the day is when there are many calls in que. Each call is customer that is important and to make sure that the customer has a good feeling once the call is completed.

The most enjoyable part of the day is the beginning of the day when the day is new and I am ready to give it my best. – less

Good product, good technology, nice people, fair benefits
Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee), Carlsbad, CADecember 24, 2013
I've had a good experience here, I've enjoyed code, the team, the work environment. The hardest part has been that the majority of the software development (at least for my product) is done in Boulder, Colorado which makes team collaboration difficult.

Typical Corporate America
R&D Testing Services Engineering Technician III (Former Employee), North Haven, CTDecember 21, 2013
Covidien got me my start in corporate america, I basically grew up in the company. After years i started to learn the strategies of the company. It was that knowledge that pushed me to find a new beginning. Covidien doesn't really like people that think outside the box, the old guard is set in there ways and they do not like to deviate from those ways. – more... The typical work day is very structured but you can have a good time if thats your personality, – less

good company to work for in general
Systems Analyst / SW Engr / Data Architect (Current Employee), Mansfield, MADecember 20, 2013
Pros: good benefits
Cons: too much attention to this quarters financial results, not long enough term picture thinking
This is a good company to work for in general. It's growing, healthy in a recession resistant industry. I work in IT and currently IT is going through offshoring. The bad is that it is publicly held and they pay too much attention to this quarters financials instead of medium term or long term planning.

Excellent and progressive company to work for!
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), New Haven, CTDecember 17, 2013
Pros: free coffee, tea, sometimes cookies, muffins, etc.
Working as an Administrative Professional at Covidien was a rewarding and fulfilling experience. Over the many years I was privileged to work for and with so many amazing and talented individuals we were all learning so much every day about our jobs, the products and our company.

Management continuously communicated what we needed to do in order for – more... our teams to be successful and meet the company goals.

The company was team based, in my experience we supported each other cross-functionally and cross-campus to get the job done!

We all work incredibly hard, but always with a smile! – less
