    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    Great benefits and incentive programs, onsite gym with classes, great people, a lot of development opportunities and ways to get involved through employee resource groups and social groups.

    Work/life balance still needs a little work, low visibility from senior leadership, career advancement is a slow process here.

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

    Pros

    Great Pay, stellar products and smart people at all levels.. Always have a way to differentiate your products from the competition to offer value to each customer

    Cons

    Sometimes the goal setting can be unfair based on who they allow to excel and who they decide to dump the revenue growth on.. Top notch business performance can be negated by unrealistic growth goals..

    Advice to Management

    Make sure managers are fair when giving out annual revenue growth goals.

    Pros

    Great company and a powerhouse in medical devices. Multi-medical modality helps create opportunities in all areas. Pacing is the revenue driver. Other specialities minimal,

    Cons

    Lack of new technology. Also lacking R&D in the area I worked in. Too much emphasis on pacing and icd. Need new cutting edge tech in other areas.

    Advice to Management

    Need new cutting edge tech in other areas. More resources in R&D. Look to be acquired by other medical device companies to enhance portfolio.
