    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Boston Scientific (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salary and benefits were average. Café on site was subsidized.

    Cons

    No real work life balance, co workers were not team players and would do just about anything to make themselves look good. Promotions were given based on length at company and how loud one complained versus one's skills and work ethic.

    I worked at Boston Scientific (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - The division has some good cultural values/goals, like a fun, innovative work place
    - Halloween is fun

    Cons

    - In practice, the division fails to deliver on the stated cultural values
    - A lot of negativity, particularly from the project management office
    - Former engineers who were promoted to managers comprise a significant portion of the leadership team. As a result, there isn't much management competency or true leadership.
    - Star performers aren't valued and inevitably leave due to lack of opportunity and poor management

    Advice to Management

    Retain the best employees. To retain employees, keep them happy, don't overwork them, and pay them more money. The best employees have options and will leave seeking better opportunities.
