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.

    I worked at Boston Scientific full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits. People are very friendly overall.

    Cons

    Poor management, especially at the corporate level.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on improving your current product offerings instead of taking a shot in the dark by acquiring companies you think will be complementary. There is a reason investors haven't been happy in years.
