we were acquired...tiny fish swallowed by a whale

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Boston Scientific full-time

ProsBSC 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.

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