    Pros

    Great people in middle management. They are willing to develop people, and put an emphasis on promoting internally. Overall a great work environment.

    Cons

    Lower margins for their products have lead to a series of layoffs. The company is big and bureaucratic, so they are trying to lean-out the organization. I saw 4 significant lay offs while there. They seem to be shifting to acquisitions rather that develop new technology internally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop buying back the stock and use the savings to invest in new products.

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

    Pros

    Great people at the individual contributor level and even some managers. Good location north of the Twin Cities, just off of 694 with access to some good restaurants for lunch. Free parking relatively close to buildings.

    Cons

    Director level and above have a lack of strategy. Made it through 4 layoffs in 3 years of employment but always worried about job security. Work/Life balance heavily leaned the wrong way. A manager told me to expect to work from 7 AM to 7 PM.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more employee appreciation.
