    Pros

    BSC has an interesting product line, has a serious commitment to providing training and development for employees, and is large enough to provide career growth.

    Cons

    Management needs to do a better job developing a long-term strategy and then executing it. Layoffs are a knee-jerk way to run a company!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop your strategy for the long term, communicate the strategy, treat every employee with respect, treat every sale as if your mother's or father's life depended on the quality of the device sold!

    I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. At least they were.

    Cons

    Little room for advancement. No career development. Very very political. And raises have been stingy for many years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you can't promote, say why you can't promote and say what needs to be done to get promoted. Don't give us that 'you need more global leadership' crap to someone who only works locally. What does that even mean?
