    I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It is fulfilling to know the job you do helps to save lives and improve patients lives. That's one of the reasons to be excited coming into work each day. The ideas and products are top notch. Benefits are good, and constantly changing to meet the needs of a diverse workforce. The CEO is refreshing and one of us. He doesn't keep to the ivory tower, but instead is approachable and visible. He has a vision and for the past 5+ years it has worked. Company stock has grown well beyond market norms during that time.

    Cons

    The company operates in several business units, which doesn't allow for best practices to make it through the ranks. Collaboration is kept inside the BU's, when it should be shared company wide. Personnel seem to be split between, the "old" Boston Scientific and the "new"

    Advice to Management

    Focus on one process for all. Break down the silos. Force collaboration in R&D, Legal, Finance, HR, etc.. We are duplicating ideas and wasting money, when one process/product could fit all.

    I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Constant focus on developing products for category leadership
    - Supportive management
    - Opportunities to expand responsibilities in your own role through an array of development assignments

    Cons

    - I'd call it more of a challenge than a con, but because the work we do is very cross-functional, it can be difficult at first to learn how to work with different teams/businesses.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be an industry leader in product development. Many of the people we hire choose BSC because of our reputation as an innovator.

    Lack of diversity within leadership. Old guard in leadership roles.

    I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time

    Pros

    We have an incredible business leader and President in our division. What else? Half the Sr team is women in the PI business which is unheard of in med device. Jeff will do the right thing ...and more...when no one is looking. We are having huge success with customers and employees because of EQ, commercial, technical competence and huge focus on our internal culture too...it's a blend for success!

    Cons

    We all just have to find more ways to manage work/life. The company supports it but we attract super motivated people who just have to give themselves permission.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the cultures in PI, NMD, Uro/WH....these divisions are huge opportunities to grow if we keep them focused on entrepreneurial and creative.

    Pros

    The people. Good relationships. Good perks, Valley Fair day discount more than 50% off. Fitness center and cafeteria is great! Lots of recent efforts to improve employee satisfaction and desire to maintain talent.

    Cons

    Facility is large. Parking is tough especially for 2nd shift folks. Would be great to include Production team in bonus program.

    Advice to Management

    QFIP payout is nice but would prefer Product Builders be included in yearly bonus. QFIP is small payout even though monthly and tax makes it look like not much.
