I worked at Boston Scientific full-time

Pros

BSC is stability. Hard for a startup person to handle, ironically. However, the roller coaster ride stops, and you head to the bumper cars. You can move, strategically, and the most you have to deal with are a few bumps on the road.

Cons

You go from handling/managing many facets of many issues, to being narrowly defined and labeled. The hierarchy (much of which is unnecessary) makes it tough for you to be you, and really do what you do best - contribute to make a difference.

I'd done the big company thing before. Left it because it was stifling to me.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take more time to swallow the guppy. While "the market" accepts it immediately, your employees and customers don't. Keep the brand a little longer

    I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good devices, decent benefits, flexible work schedule-can work from home, good cafeteria, dry cleaning on site, nice people who are loyal, talented young workforce, expanding- buying new companies, decent tuition reimbursement, pet insurance

    Cons

    Poor management. High turnover rate; there have been 3 CEO's in the four years i've been there. Way too much Outsourcing; Quality is slipping. LOW promotion and bonus rate, seems to get worse every year. No appreciation for the "worker bee's" who make all the difference. Good work goes unnoticed due to poor Supervisors and Managers, lack of communication, low starting pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Speak and listen to your employees. Stop outsourcing. Do more to keep American's employed. Pay your top talent a decent salary! Improve company moral.

    I have been working at Boston Scientific

    Pros

    Decent Pay, good tuition reimbursement and vacation benefits. Health benefits have gone downhill the last couple years.

    Cons

    Upper management is essentially a group of former engineers and most aren't necessarily management material.
