    I worked at Boston Scientific

    Pros

    Great company to work for! They treat their employees better than anywhere else I've worked. Doesn't feel like a job, feels more like family.

    Cons

    It seemed like there was quite a bit of miscommunication.

    I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Some of the nicest people I've ever worked with or for. Never worked for a company where senior leadership was so down to earth.

    Cons

    Can't really think of any worth posting. Our CEO is turning things around and I see nothing but good things for this company!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep us moving forward with new technologies!

    Great company to work for

    I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time

    Pros

    Values employees in the sales force. Still has a smaller company feel even if it is a Fortune 500. Promotes movement within the company.

    Cons

    Typical sales attitude " what have you done for the company and team lately? "

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managing strong personalities on a team often gets avoided so the team as a whole suffers
