Local experience has been very good, corporate headquarters the opposite

Pros

Good opportunities to learn about the CRM business and develop relationships with business staff. Local customers are great to work with and very appreciative of our efforts.

Cons

Very poor management at headquarters, out of touch with reality, no concept of people management, no leaders, no strategy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Managing people is at least as important as managing projects. Technical knowledge and expertise is sorely needed to provide guidance to leadership as well as to less experienced offshore resources. Create a real technical I.S. career path. Start treating people as individuals, not like faceless, undifferentiated cogs in the machine.

    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.
