I worked at Boston Scientific full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The people were great. Work-life balance was easy to achieve as the workload was not unreasonable.

Cons

The upper management does not seem to have a great vision of the future. Too many layoffs. The stock price has been floundering for a few years, which is not great for the 401 plan!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out how to recapture the Guidant magic and bring back the innovation. Pioneer the next big thing in the appropriate medical device area and ride the wave.

    I worked at Boston Scientific

    Pros

    A lot of good systems already established, the salary and compensation packages were better but are still better than most other companies. The product depth is makes the company stable.

    Cons

    Management can yes you to death, agree in theory, but never actually take actions. It can leave employees a little lost with that type of leadership. Senior Management still can not admit they purchased other companies and did paid too much. The due diligence process did not work properly and every stockholder and employee paid the price. Until they can admit to errors they will have trouble growing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leverage best practices across the industry and don't rely on the not invented here mind set. The company can grow with fresh ideas.

    I worked at Boston Scientific

    Pros

    Interesting industry, great people, good pay

    Cons

    cut throat, RIFs all the time, constant change in higher management, lack of recognition of talent at lower levels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend less time hiring expensive management and more time focusing on the little people. Everyone was stressed constantly because of RIFs and changes in management that work was not being done or efficiently and a lot of people jumped ship including me.
