Covidien Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Covidien was an Irish-headquartered global health care products company and manufacturer of medical devices and supplies. Covidien became an independent publicly traded company after being spun-off from Tyco International in 2007.It was purchased by Medtronic in a transaction that closed in 2015. The now merged company is headquartered in Ireland, where Covidien was based.

Unhappy Covidien customer Bailey W.'s review said:

This company Covidien is taking an unfair advantage of people who need medical supplies. One this brand sucks, Curad is much better for prep pads and two, I just had to pay ungodly amount just to have something that I need on the daily. This is NOT fair to people who need things like this for their daily routines.


Tell the world why Covidien sucks!

I certify that this review is based on my own experiece and is my opinion of this person or business. I have not been offered any incentive or payment to write this review.

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"Your learning will come at a high price. The mid and lower management of this department provide little to no guidance and have the audacity to ridicule and blacklist those who stumble up the learning curve. There is no professional development and absolutely zero chance of advancement unless you are among the privileged few. Management is self-absorbed, immature and inept. They are primarily focused on their own career goals and the way in which they are perceived by upper management than on developing and leading their staff. 5 resignations in the past 2 months - hopefully they change their ways. But highly doubtful."
