    I worked at Boston Scientific as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Rewarding work; the devices Boston Scientific makes benefit the lives of many. If you work hard and perform well, you will be rewarded. It also has a very young work force compared to other biomedical companies, which makes for a great workplace culture.

    Cons

    If you can deal with the medical regulation you'll be okay. There are no obvious cons to me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing - that is, caring about those who work for you.

    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.
