Advice to Management

In general management was very engaged in the day to day and operated professionally. There are always sour grapes with a particular manager but we all have those -- its important to keep perspective; if the plant were still open many people would have worked there for a long time, even for life.

  1. It's been a roller coaster of building and improving followed by focus on cost reductions, RIFs, and outsourcing.

    Pros

    The corporate makes a lot of good products that make an important difference in the quality of patient lives. The simple mission statement: " I improve the quality of patient care and all things Boston Scientific."

    Cons

    Debt maintenance from past acquisitions (purchasing of Guidant at all costs) with its long term impact on business performance as well as the resulting preoccupation with cost reductions. Willingness to eliminate/outsource QA jobs after the FDA Corporate warning letter was lifted. Increased outsourcing of US jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget that the patient comes first in the mission statement as you concentrate on cost cutting by eliminating and outsourcing US jobs to improve margins.

  2. Good place to start career
