    I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, challenging environment and great coworkers. The projects I work on are beyond amazing and actually having an impact in society. Facilities are meant to empower employees and the work that they do.

    Cons

    This is a corporation, so the usual structure applies. Decisions sometimes take days to be made, but it is part of the deal. IF you are patient, you will eventually receive the resources you need to succeed and make the company succeed. Everybody wins at the end.

    Advice to Management

    Try to avoid micromanaging and have more faith in your team. There is a reason why go hired them. The work is not only about the bottom line, but to continuously generate value, even if its effects can only be recognized in the long-term.

    Healthcare is going through a tough time these days. The changes will be consistent over the next 5+ years. It's a tough place to earn the big dollars of years past. However, it's always going to be a solid place to work.

    I have been working at Boston Scientific (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked with bright, competitive people in Sales, Marketing and Med Ed who were focused on achieving sales success. The pace is fast & the customer base is dynamic.

    Cons

    Very little cons working at BSC. Like any other Med Device company, you can expect to work hard, with regular adjustments to your planned activities a part of the norm. Lean staffing; expect to perform multiple roles.

    Pros

    Nice building in marlboro. Excellent training department. OK benefits.

    Remote management in Minnesota suffers from "Minnesota Nice" and provides constant over the top feedback; micro management!

    Advice to Management

    Increase your staff in Marlboro -- It's your HQ!!
