    I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    1) The people - I've met and worked with bright, talented people across multiple sites and functions.
    2) The culture - the current vibe is positive, the team is collaborative and leadership is approachable. There has been a big transformation over the past 5 years and it is more inclusive than it was in the past.
    3) Great mission and future growth opportunity - this is a company with great technology and is focused on improving patients lives.

    Cons

    1) work/life balance can be a challenge in certain areas as the Company is growing and evolving itself at a fast pace.
    2) while the company is growing, more work is needed to reduce costs, which can be painful and/or frustrating to impacted teams.

    Advice to Management

    Read some of these reviews on a regular basis to keep a pulse on the organization in between engagement surveys. Keep up the focus on D&I and efforts to further develop people managers and staff.

    I worked at Boston Scientific full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Autonomy earned by high performance. Winning is fun. Documented high performance and continuous YoY growth is rewarded. Therein is a safe harbor and enduring independence.

    Cons

    S-L-O-W to hold ineffective and corrupt executives accountable. Many are protected and coddled too long. Official org chart does not show who actually performs and does the work. "Title" wave of new big fluffy inflated titles that are in fact only lateral moves.

    Advice to Management

    Police weak and corrupt leadership at all levels and quickly prosecute unethical and illegal behavior with and conspicuous sexual harassment by both female and male employees. All was reported and documented and led to reassignment when immediate dismissal was the responsible choice.

    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.
