I worked at Boston Scientific full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Depending on who you work for/with, Boston Scientific can be a great place to work! The cafeteria is good and gym has lots to offer.

Cons

The morale overall is low, layoffs abound. After 10 years, this is the 3rd executive management regime and with every regime, the last 2 administrations never walked around the home office to meet the little "people" (the folks who do all the work! There are lots of changes (not all changes are good!). Raises have been less than 3% for the past 3 years and bonuses are given to the "most important" positions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Talk to the people who work hard every day to bring your vision to light. They do have some good ideas.

    Pros

    Good people, some good products

    Cons

    No growth. Too many jobs outsourced contractors aren't trained well enough to do the job. Management is about quantity and quality gets lost. Too much favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the outsourcing and look to actually develop the talent you hired in the first place.

    I worked at Boston Scientific full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people - at all levels. The Executive Team is always striving to put out the best new products, with the highest quality, in the shortest amount of time.

    Cons

    There are definitely some people that need to move on as they have definitely overstayed their effectiveness. Also, without some recognition by the stock market for all of the new innovations that get launched each year, there will always be a "small man" complex.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some risks and promote some talent two levels down. The old boys club isn't working.
