    I worked at Boston Scientific

    Pros

    Well paid internship. Excellent path into leadership development program. Engaging office culture. Hard work but great place to learn. Fun office perks including lunches, dinners, and team building events.

    Cons

    Boston Scientific is a large multinational company with the typical faults of big business culture. There is favoritism and political maneuvering throughout the corporate ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage entrepreneurial thinking.

    Pros

    Good company with a good mission.

    Cons

    Awful, narrow minded senior management. Only care about cutting costs, don't care about employees or employee growth at all. Will erode vendor relations without blinking an eye as long as it saves money. Loyalty and quality means nothing to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the office culture.

    I worked at Boston Scientific full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity to work with and investigate a broad spectrum of medical devices.

    Cons

    If you're not part of management when you're hired, you likely won't be due to the lack of internal development. The turnover is huge and they tend to hire managers from other firms than reorganize departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide growth opportunities for people who have demonstrated leadership and improved the value of the serves rather than letting staff go to meet arbitrary benchmarks. Once enough staff has left, no one will be left to answer were the data is or what it means.

    I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are very smart and great to work with. Everyone works hard and is focused on the company vision. Salary is OK but not great. Benefits are pretty standard. The new CEO is moving things in the right direction but sacrificing morale and culture to meet targets.

    Cons

    Layoffs and acquisitions haven't helped the culture. Company culture remains an issue. Everyone is under resourced, working long hours, and getting burned out. There is no work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop cutting resources. Focus on sales growth.

    The people. Lots of legacy people that were groomed and trained well. Although there has been high attrition

    Cons

    Under paid, no path for success or growth, challenging industry

    Be more honest and transparent

    Pros

    able to spread into any area directly connected to current position. They will take all you willing give.

    Cons

    expectations often unreasonable; required to get the job done regardless .... Family, time off, health are simply secondary to the project meeting its deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    freewheeling on projects shows in maintenance costs. Saying a project came in "on-time" and "on budget" has nothing to do with the system going live without major issues, doing what the business wants.
