    I worked at Boston Scientific

    Pros

    The technology is interesting, and you can clearly see how the products affect patient health. Great opportunities to view live cases and see the products in action. I enjoyed the global scope of my work and learning about international operations.

    The decent benefits and relatively flexible work schedules were nice.

    Cons

    The people I worked with were the most depressed and unhappy people I have ever met. Layoffs started happening multiple times a year, and management generally stopped bothering to communicate about them. In the morning you'd come to your desk and hear a broadcast voicemail from the execs announcing the "changes," but you'd have to whisper to people in the hallways to learn who was affected.

    My colleagues in the quality division were never expected to leave their cubicles. Face-to-face communication was rarely possible with divisions scattered around the world, and work was tracked and timed in the clunky, rarely-updated database system. Managers openly assigned work according to who pissed them off the most/least, and favoritism was rampant. Office drama and battles were chronic and reminiscent of junior high. INSANE micromanagement. The environment was unbelievably unprofessional.

    Product training was minimal to non-existent, which made doing the work difficult - and no one really knew if they were doing the work correctly.

    Opportunities for advancement were nonexistent - some colleagues were promised promotions for years that never came to fruition.

    Salary negotiation with the job offer was also nonexistent, and dealing with HR during the hiring process was a nightmare. They're not afraid to lowball you on salary due to the economy/current job market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up. Respect your staff. Try communicating honestly for once.
