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

Pros

Paid well, facilities were very nice, many opportunities if you wanted to change departments

Cons

having issues determining where they want to go and who should lead - bit surprosed by adoption of Guidant processes - didnt appear completely thought out and appeared to be the goal of only a few middle/upper management (most of whom left the company during and immediately following the changes)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

may need to look for more input that one or two VPs -

    I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Open enviroment, great people and lots of knowledge

    Cons

    Being young and enthusiastic you don't get recognized for your great ideas...all good ideas get thrown in a pot leaving individuals feeling like part of a machine

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate all workers fairly and instill confidence. You can instill confidence by being honest, keeping your employees informed is key.

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

    Pros

    Outstanding work-life balance. There's a belief in not working too much and that it's just a job. Additionally, in my experience, I found that my peers had the drive and creativity to market sub-par products in a crowded space. Average benefits across med-tech companies.

    Cons

    Stagnation and mediocrity are acceptable part of the culture, so if you are a hard charger, you won't fit in. When management skills (leadership, driving the business, creativity) in this company are compared to managers in other companies, BSC managers are sub-par.
    Culture is stuck in the 1990s, during the good old days. Hey, guess what, it's a different ball game, but the company hasn't changed with the times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold managers accountable for revenue targets. If they can't hit them, let them go.
