Team Leader (Current Employee) – North Haven, CT 06473 – January 29, 2017
A typical day at Covidien is working with a diverse group of uniquely talented individuals in a atmosphere of mutual respect and trust for one another. We all worked at our very best high levels to produce world-class quality products that helped to dramatically improve and save our customers lives.
My job was to make sure that all operators were following all SOP's, GMP's, JSA's completing all paperwork working in a safe and constructive manner at all times.
At Covidien our culture was always one of accomplishing the impossible; we had a saying "make it happen" this means that when we work together as a team with teamwork anything is possible. The no and I can't do not exist when you are part of a high performance team. My job was to keep the team on the right track and to keep us all moving forward towards our common business goals.
The hardest part of the job was when someone had to be disciplined. The most enjoyable part of the job was when we got to promote someone.
Maintenance Tech III (Former Employee) – Oriskany Falls, NY – February 24, 2017
The best paying job that I ever had. Our plant in Oriskanny Falls, NY moved to Mexico and left slim pickings for the rest of us. A fast pased work enviorment with loads of overtime. The people were wonderful to work with and management was compentent. They supplyed all the tools and provided training to make my job easier. I would work with them again.
A good company with an organized approach to growing the business.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Home office at Hazelwood, MO – August 18, 2016
I would say overall that Covidien was a good company to work for and I valued the time I was employed with them. New product development or quality co-promotions were lacking, as well as a realistic opportunity to maximize the comp plan. A very positive outcome from these challenges was a constant honing of my sales skills on a daily basis in order to deal with some of the objections and indifference I encountered in the field. Most of the products were rather old, expensive and often times needed prior authorization as they were positioned as brand/generic in most cases by changing the indication or dosage. Development of strong trusted relationships and solid sales skills were a must in my position.
A good good sized budget in order to develop and cultivate business relationships
Older products, lack of cutting edge newer products in the pipeline.
Quality Laboratory Analyst (Current Employee) – North Haven, CT – February 15, 2016
A company committed to excellence in medical devices that incorporates total quality management in their research, manufacturing, and quality control. An employee friendly, team oriented environment with good benefits. Good opportunities for advancement.
Interesting job but work schedules and management was very erratic.
Chemist I (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – November 10, 2015
The company has been around for a VERY long time at the Saint Louis location. Initially, a different manager who hired me seem to have a more pleasant attitude and cared more for the employees. The regular manager was on long term disability and when he came back the morale went down the tubes. Long crazy 12 hour shift hours and very high turnover rate put the department into a state of chaos.
Decent starting salary and good benefits.
Management issues, new(old) manger reinstated 12 rotating shifts, which permitted NO life work balance for people with families.
