Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

you might be interested to try this company as an intern, but this is it. You can get familiar with medical devices, firmware and software development, testing and releases. But this is it.

Cons

Right now there is no particular reason you'd like to join this company. Layoffs are happening twice a year, sometimes they are silent - you can only find out about it when somebody from coworkers will tell you. The management is self-centric and incompetent.

Advice to Management

Respect the engineers.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    BSC makes compelling products, and management is pretty forward thinking of late about using the best technology possible. I've had great options for career advancement and feel like I'm part of a solid team.

    Cons

    It's a very large company - this is both a blessing and a curse. There have been movements to use offshore teams more in the last 4 years.

    Advice to Management

    Less VPs, more engineers. Follow the Apple model and put your money into engineering better products rather than employing more VPs.
