    I worked at Biosense Webster full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - BWI technology and pipeline is strong and the current market leader - The training is excellent, but peers and supervisors will not hold your hand to make you accountable - Excellent benefits, salary, career path trajectory, and room for growth (If you work hard for the company, they will absolutely take care of you) - Johnson & Johnson Resources

    Cons

    Who you work with can make or break your career success. Educational training is uniform when learning EP and Mapping, but field training is not uniform. Different Doctors, different mapping styles based on regions and physician savvy with current best practices, different trainers/teaching styles/coaching styles, etc. Ultimately, what matters is that you can map a case correctly and please the physician.

    "Not the Best Place to Work for an Engineer"

    I worked at Biosense Webster full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    JnJ's benefits and compensation are not that bad.

    Cons

    Management's main concerns are maintaining their double digit growth and hitting their Goals and Objectives. They keep on pushing half baked ideas and demand that deadlines are met when the product isn't ready. Management also gives no recognition for hard work and constantly emotes negativity to their departments. With regards to engineering, nothing innovative is ever pushed. BWI is still developing technology that was designed in the 1960's. The catheters are really basic and there is no challenge. Most of the new catheter designs are based off of the competitor's designs from years prior. The biggest challenge at BWI is dealing with personalities. Senior management promotes an internal competitive nature. Each department within BWI is competing with another. It makes for an extremely inefficient and negative work environment and collaboration is almost impossible.
