US jobs abandoned

Production Supervisor (Current Employee)

I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time for more than 8 years

ProsPay, work conditions and benefits

ConsBoston scientific abandoned the US workers in Miami. They moved the facility to Costa Rico. Previous senior management made a bad investment in Guidant.

Advice to Senior ManagementWe are suffering in the US. We need jobs. Don't contaminate the good name of Boston Scientific with greed. Bring Miami back. We need each other.

Too Bad its closing

Quality Engineer (Former Employee)
Doral, FL

I worked at Boston Scientific

ProsGood place to work and develop
Good systems in place to drive lean production
Good Quality Systems and principle based manufacturing

ConsLooking to shrink on cost structure far more than increasing sales
Divesting Miami site to Costa Rica
Laid off all Miami employees effective 2012

Advice to Senior ManagementIn general management was very engaged in the day to day and operated professionally. There are always sour grapes with a particular manager but we all have those -- its important to keep perspective; if the plant were still open many people would have worked there for a long time, even for life.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Caveat Emptor

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Miami, FL

I worked at Boston Scientific

ProsOpportunity to work on products and projects focused on improving people's lives.
Development of technical competence through extensive training, including process and product validation, six-sigma and lean.
Knowledgeable staff that can support your projects, if you know where to look (extremely important to build personal network).

ConsLack of management training, even if individual does not have any people management experience.
Dictatorship style of management, generating results through intimidation and bullying.
HR department more focused on punishing staff for failing to meet requirements, rather than understanding the root cause for mediocre organizational performance.

Advice to Senior ManagementAlthough a significant amount of resources have been spent training employees to achieve technical competence, the same cannot be said for management development. This has lead to the revolving door of externally hired management that are unable to drive change in the organization due to their lack of credibility. Stop this practice by identifying and developing your internal talent. Otherwise, your talent flight will continue.
