Pros

Compansation is above average, work flexibility is good. The quality of the engineers is quite good. You can get lots of experience in a short time.

Cons

Not sure of future of company. The level of burocracy is very high. Some systems are very combersome. Nearly all changes end up with things more complicated than prior to the change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to make systems clearer and simpler. Try not to do thing like announce promotions for senior executives in the same news release as announcing massive layoffs.

    Cardiac Rhythm Management is okay

    Pros

    A culture that encourages rotating within and between functions for broad and deep experiences. At its core there is a very strong group of mid-level managers and associates where collaboration and support is strong. Younger, gregarious group of people that create a reasonably fun work environment.

    Cons

    Broad business success has escaped them recently making it a more challenging environment to work in with limited growth prospects and limited opportunities for advancement. Tough business conditions have led to limited to no raises and sub-standard bonuses. Senior leadership not always as strong as needs to be to succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure the business for success, cutting deep if necessary, and use the extra money to compensate your top performers. Too much status quo has led to mediocrity and dissatisfaction.

    Much better when it was Guidant

    Pros

    Guidant (not sure about BSX) cared about patients and employees, not just the bottom line. Fred McCoy was really approachable. Tried very hard to produce quality medical devices even though there were some legal issues.

    Cons

    BSX doesn't seem to care about anything except the bottom line. Guidant was Top 100 Places to Work For ... BSX? Management admitted they didn't care about that at all. Says a lot about the culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about the engineers. Say hello once in a while. Have a systematic method of promotion and achievement recognition. Sponsor team building events and patient panels more often.
