“Discovering that I was the one who started the stent…and it went through our other departments, it truly touched me because we tend to thank the doctors that save our lives, but forget about the people behind the scenes.” - Ian, Boston Scientific employee and the recipient of one of our life-saving devices.

In 1978 John Abele and Pete Nicholas were both looking for solutions. Abele wanted an investor for Medi-Tech, a company he joined in 1969 that was pioneering the field of interventional medicine, who would see his vision-to create new markets for less-invasive medicine and spread the word about Medi-Tech's products. Nicholas wanted to build an enterprise. The result was Boston Scientific, founded on June 29, 1979, as a holding company to purchase Medi-Tech.
Abele and Nicholas founded Boston Scientific with a clear purpose-to benefit public health by bringing more accessible, lower-cost and lower-trauma medical options to patients, and to become a leader in all aspects of the industry. And they created a culture in which employees shared and believed in that purpose.
Mike Mahoney became President and Chief Executive Officer on November 1, 2012.
Mahoney is one of the most inspiring leaders in the medical technology industry, having established a track record building market leading global businesses in medical devices, capital equipment, and healthcare IT service at best-in-class companies.

Excellent mission. Thoughtful orientation and onboarding process. Always thinking about improving the quality of life and saving lives of patients. Good Work/life balance. You can get involved in as much or as little extra projects for your development as you want.
Can't think of any true negatives. Maple Grove cafeteria needs an upgrade - add vegetarian/vegan options, more fresh vegetables, etc.
Advice to Management
Keep stressing the importance of working hard and sharing knowledge. Never stop innovating.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Boston Scientific (Maple Grove, MN) in November 2017.
I met with the two Program Managers and the Director of the PI Clinical Group, each for 30 minutes. The process was quick and focused on my previous experience. They all discussed the working environment, elaborating on fostering a team-like approach. They also discussed changes in upper management that have made the entire group flexible and more hands-on, which allows for greater visibility of BSCI to our research sites. All three of the people I interviewed with stressed that respect and collaboration were among the most important things they were looking for in candidates, in addition to experience. I found the entire experience very motivating and very excited at the potential to work within the group.
