Pros

It is always satisfying to work for a product that will eventually help people. Since this industry is regulated by the FDA, you opportunity for creativity is limited. Your creativity is often seen as a liability, which really takes the fun out of engineering. I guess every good things has its negatives; if you want to impact the health of people, you have to have many regulations. That brings me to another factor, there is a ton of paper work that goes along with this job. Everything needs to be monitored carefully to ensure the final product is same for its final use.

Cons

Sometimes you might not feel like you are contributing much.

    Pros

    Boston Scientific is a large corporation that allows for functional changes in jobs that smaller companies can't offer. The pay is good and the bonus program puts compensation at the middle to high end.

    Cons

    Sr Managment does not value employees like it used to. BSC used to be a big company with a small company mentality, making it very appealing to work there. Now, it's just like other large corporations with less than desirable Sr Mgmt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sr Managment needs to change the perception of their employees - they feel that communication lacks and employees are not valued.

    Pros

    Fairly stable business with a good range of products. It feels great to know that the work you do is helping people live better lives by use of Boston Scientific products. The latest products released are much more cutting edge compared to competitors and it's exciting to see life improving products

    Cons

    The market seems to be taking a toll on the business. Boston Scientific also seems to end up on the negative side of court rulings. Some of the most simple processes involve a large amount of paperwork which tends to make people not want to make changes. Promotion process appears to be a quite slow.
