Good experience, good company

Intern (Former Employee)
Spencer, IN

I worked at Boston Scientific

ProsI worked in the finance department as an intern and had a great experience. The people were friendly, they pay was solid, and the products BSC makes genuinely make a positive difference in people's lives.

ConsI found working the 8-5 in the same office at the same desk Monday through Friday a little tedious, at least at this point in my career. Departments are a bit disconnected as well.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Co-Ops, learn as much as you can and move on

Co-Op (Former Employee)
Spencer, IN

I worked at Boston Scientific as an intern for less than a year

Pros- Good hourly salary and chances to work overtime to even make more money
- Many opportunities to learn about how the healthcare industry operates
- Constant exposure to Six Sigma and Lean Manufacturing
- Flexible hours
- Close to college town
- Friendly co-workers

Cons- Most of the time you will be doing validation testing for the engineers, which can get boring after a while
- No benefits offered (health insurance, 401k, etc.)
- No mentoring programs
- Rural location

Advice to Senior ManagementGive co-ops and interns chances to participate in real engineering projects as members, not as peons that do the work that no one wants to. You will make them feel more excited about their job and convince them that this is the place to come when it's time for full-time job searching.

Lots of change, lack of stability

Engineer (Current Employee)
Spencer, IN

I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe people ar nice. They have good benefits. There is a great link to pateint care and the difference the company makes in minimaly invasive medicine.

ConsThere is a lack of core competencies and depth of knowledge in leaders/managers; It is difficult to work in a very corporate ruled organization that is slow moving

Advice to Senior ManagementLimit required programs sites must implement; Managment should realize the amount of work required to make small changes and properly resource.

Engage your workforce

Senior Production Supervisor (Former Employee)
Spencer, IN

I worked at Boston Scientific full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat coworkers
Good Benefits including short time required to become fully vested for 401k
Decent Salary

ConsMorale of employees
Upper Management disengagement
"Lean Team" which did not understand the concept of lean or the flow of the areas.

Advice to Senior ManagementAdd resources, treat people fairly and actually listen to their subordinates.

Great people, poorly managed.

Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee)
Spencer, IN

I worked at Boston Scientific full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe employees at this plant really do create a sort of family.

ConsEver since the lifting of the FDA 483 and the Guidant settlement, the work environment has been more fickle.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou might want to retain some of your longer term employees for a while instead of filling the place with fresh college grads in critical positions.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good place to explore your interest in industry, look elsewhere if you are looking for a challenge

Engineer (Former Employee)
Spencer, IN

I worked at Boston Scientific

ProsIt is a great place to get experience in the medical devices industry on the research side, or in manufacturing on the production side.

ConsMany employees aren't motivated to work hard, upper management is often too involved in the day-to day operations of the business resulting in little authority at lower levels. Furthermore, advancement is unpredictable, and it seems like there is no distinct path for career progression.

Advice to Senior ManagementStep back and let people do their job. It would also be nice if management was not involved in putting out the day to day fires and focused more on sustainability.
