Great place to start. Not a bad place to stay. Learn to put up with the "slower," regulated environment that feels fast.

Pros

Great training, great people, good benefits. People want to do the right thing (related to products). Opportunities to learn. Makes life-saving products. Healthy sense of urgency, most of the time.

Cons

Recognition is hap-hazard. Regulations are exacerbated by company's interpretations of them, making work / progress slow. Management has focused too much on iterating and been slow to deliver new things (i.e. a "me-too" company). The healthy sense of urgency often makes it feel really busy. But, honestly, I've rarely worked over 50 hours/wk, and even then, I probably could have gotten by just fine with less.

Advice to Management

Make your plan. Base it on good information and instincts. Then really stick to it! Invest in more exploratory and "out of the box" ideas.

    Pros

    Moving within the company is relatively easy. Boston has always been commited to keeping their employees out our branch as much as possible (no layoffs). The benefits are very good. You feel like you have a purpose when you're working there.

    Cons

    Your career advancement is heavily dependent on your hiring manager (big surprise) so if your manager is poor, and want to move up, you may have extreme difficulty. Base compensation can be lower than competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for communicating to us. I feel like we are kept in the loop. I hope that we can continue to make progress down the road.

    Pros

    You will gain an appreciation of what it is like to work for a company that values conformance and "yes" men.

    Cons

    Year after year management continues to launch restructuring initiatives. Maybe it's leadership that's the issue, not how employees are allocated.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees know what you're thinking. I learn more about the company by reading Yahoo finance than I do through communication coming from upper management.
