Fair at best. Feels like a failing enterprise.

Pros

Cutting edge technology. Being a part of healthcare. Supporting physicians and nurses. Decent work/life balance. Good pay. Generally good people working there.

Cons

Senior management doesn't seem to care much about employees, except salesforce. Marketing definitely takes a back seat to sales. While medical technology is cutting edge, everything else moves at a snail's pace. Bad location.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Exit interviews would provide so much insight. Have staff assess management anonymously. Take a look at the lifers who are in Sr Mgmt who are not respected and make some changes!

    Pros

    Great place to learn about medical device industry and FDA regulations

    Cons

    You're expected to work at least 60 hours/week at a minimum, work/life balance is non-existent, managers are looking out only for themselves, they will mistreat you just to make themselves look good and macho. Not much in terms of new products in pipeline, a stagnating environment overall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in internal, organic R&D, instead of buying up other companies. Invest in developing internal talent.

    I have been working at Boston Scientific

    Pros

    Good products that save lives. Good place to learn how to think on your feet, and to gain broad experience.

    Cons

    Culture of fear and intimidation. High stress. Uncaring atmosphere. Limited career development , succession planning or internal promotions except for the "chosen few". Poor work/family balance, then little recognition for your sacrifices. Unfortunately, not the great place to work it used to be...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the culture of fear, it simply doesn't work! Get out and talk to employees. Promote from within. Hiring more VP's and perks for VP and above are demotivating for everyone else given current environment of layoffs.
