    I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    After working at several companies around the United States over a long career, coming to Boston Scientific was like a breath of fresh air. There is good cooperation between employees and a general positive attitude all around. My managers have been reasonable and helpful. I've always been treated with respect by the company.

    Cons

    Having had a lot of experience at other companies, I think it is difficult to find major issues at Boston Scientific.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you could get some benefit if you brought in one or two people in certain departments who are from outside the medical industry. The tough part, though, will be getting long-term employees to accept any new ideas they might introduce.

    Pros

    Great company to work for! They treat their employees better than anywhere else I've worked. Doesn't feel like a job, feels more like family.

    Cons

    It seemed like there was quite a bit of miscommunication.

    Pros

    Some of the nicest people I've ever worked with or for. Never worked for a company where senior leadership was so down to earth.

    Cons

    Can't really think of any worth posting. Our CEO is turning things around and I see nothing but good things for this company!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep us moving forward with new technologies!
