Good place to work, but isn't exactly exciting

Pros

BSC makes products that help people and is a huge company with excellent benefits and fair wages. The company has seen its peak, probably, but doesn't feel like it is sinking. Hopefully they can maintain competitiveness and continue innovating.

Cons

It is a large company and it is really easy to be simply a number and not be recognized for effort. You really have to play politics and fight for recognition.

    Current Employee - Product Builder in Maple Grove, MN

    I have been working at Boston Scientific

    Pros

    Job security (as a product builder)
    Lots of Vacation time
    Friendly supervisors (I've had at least 5)
    Diversity of employees

    Cons

    Lots of 6 day workweeks (rarely 7)
    Can be difficult to get the exact days off you want (only a certain amount of people per line)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue in doing what you do. Perhaps find a way so that so many people are not forced to work Saturdays when they don't want to work Saturdays. I understand that is challenging in a production setting.

    I worked at Boston Scientific

    Pros

    the company still attracts great people, who are fun, talented and care about the products they make. Flexibility in work fairly good. Great products, its rewarding to see those that receive the products and see how their lives are improved.

    Cons

    not alot of reward or recognition at individual employee level. Decisions made in Corporate based on short term financial reasons, there is a continual fear of job instability, lay-offs and lack of career potential so that hampers employees too--too bureaucratic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the individual employees, there is talent, knowledge and passion that could help contribute, solve problems and drive success. There is a feeling among current and past employees that the top executives don't really care about the individual contributors.
