Great peers, lackluster managers

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.

Disapproves of CEO

    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 -
