    Allow interns access to some benefits as it would help them stick around.

    Pros

    Diverse portfolio of projects available to work on

    Cons

    It is what you make of it. It is your responsibility to involve yourself. If you don't, you won't maximise your levels of enjoyment in the day-to-day scheme of things

    Great company

    I worked at Boston Scientific

    Pros

    Great company and great culture - everyone was committed to their jobs and willing to go the extra mile. Lots of benefits for employees including an onsite credit union, gym with free classes, day care and great cafeteria.

    Cons

    The only downside is that the location is tough if you're used to being in Boston. It's a hike from downtown and there's not much around the Marlborough campus. However, BSC was piloting some initiatives like a coach bus from the city to the campus each day to save commuters hours of driving in traffic.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits; good training. Work-life balance is very good. Ability to work from home when needed

    Cons

    After being there for 10 years, there were a lot of ups and downs (too many changes), but I think the company is finally on track.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wished the executives would walk around the building a bit more and get to know the "peons" in the trenches!

    Pros

    The people are very friendly and the benefits are very good. I enjoy going to work everyday.

    It is hard to move up in your position and there is a need for new employees due to the high volume of work.
