I worked at Boston Scientific full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The people - at all levels. The Executive Team is always striving to put out the best new products, with the highest quality, in the shortest amount of time.

Cons

There are definitely some people that need to move on as they have definitely overstayed their effectiveness. Also, without some recognition by the stock market for all of the new innovations that get launched each year, there will always be a "small man" complex.

Advice to Management

Take some risks and promote some talent two levels down. The old boys club isn't working.

    I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Big Company. Product pipeline in 2 years looks pretty good.

    Cons

    Big Company. Currently offers 5 fewer vacation days to start then Medtronic (10 days versus 15). My biggest ding on benefits are if you max out your 401K before the end of the year, the company starts matching. Say you sell a little extra in November and make more commissions. No 401K match on your last check. Say you need to adjust down your 401K contribution. It takes multiple pay cycles to process and can miss part of your match. There have been slow benefit erosions too. I don't see that changing for a while until the economy creates employee retention programs again. Their biggest product downfall was their inability to correctly predict price erosion in the stent market.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice for senior management to hold a position long enough for me to remember who is doing what. True company growth will only come from innovative products, needed in high volume situations and without 10 other companies making a similar product.
