    I worked at Boston Scientific full-time

    Pros

    Many perks such as dry cleaning services, bank onsite, renovated gym and cafe, ondite daycare, and clean facilities, and a great 401K plan.

    Cons

    There are not many positions you can move to internally. You're either an admin, analyst, or an engineer is what I have found. Management doesn't really encourage career growth if it means you're leaving the department you're currently in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage career growth and recognize the strengths of each employee. Also, saying "Thank you" once in awhile goes far, as we are all human and appreciate sincerity.

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

    Pros

    I worked for Boston Scientific for more than 10 years and found the company to be a great mix of qualified employees and challenging yet rewarding work I had plenty of opportunities for varied project work and a way to move up or have an impact on projects. The culture is one of results and people work together to get those results, not against as I've seen and experiences in other companies.

    Cons

    It was a very large matrix organization when I worked there which caused inefficiencies in communication and silos where not necessary. It seemed there was a constant battle to break down these silos but which ended up making more (or different ones) and then created more inefficiencies and repetitive work.

    I have been working at Boston Scientific as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working on the assembly line for medical devices, the job pays well for only requiring a high school diploma. Paid breaks and training paid at regular hourly rates. One of the nicest things about a job like this: you don't bring work and stress home with you. The people that work here are generally kind and willing to help out.

    Cons

    You need to start out working as a contract worker through a temp agency. The attendance policy is strict. Very corporate environment with middle managers and corporate policies galore.
