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.

  1. Great company

    Current Employee - Product Builder in Maple Grove, MN
    Recommends
    Approves of CEO

    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 Management

    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.


  2. Stay away from IT if you believe in Quality!

    Pros

    Not much comes to mind since BSC bought Guidant. Guidant gave you bragging rights... BSC does not.

    Cons

    Might be a good company to work at areas other than IS, alas I had not the opportunity to experience. Our new IT motto is "Don't care for quality, save a dime". Problem is we're making devices implented in people's bodies, not lemonade! Crude language is tolerated. Respect is not present.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to behavior as well, not just super-performers. They might trample over other employees that could perform... given the chance.
