I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time

Pros

There are a lot of smart guys I have been working with. People are willing to offer helps and share knowledge whenever needed. Your efforts towards your work are reasonably appreciated. A lot of managers were promoted from technical positions and therefore understood the underlying technology.

Cons

Senior leadership made numerous mistakes at the expense of company's revenue as well as head counts. The company stopped hiring new people and wasn't able to keep its current talents. Rounds of lay-off in the last 5 years. Company also stopped investing in promising/differentiating projects and only focused on catching up with competitors.

Advice to Management

Spend more money on R&D and stop making stupid mistakes

    Pros

    Enjoy the work. Training and development is encouraged.

    Cons

    The only way to move up is to be highly visible to management vs. putting your nose to the grindstone. Good bonus but no pay raises for 70% of workers this year. Stock price can't climb out of the basement.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the people and the people will take caer of you.

    I worked at Boston Scientific full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Quality training and products. Boston has been a market leader in medical devices for a long time. They have a number of divisions, so the potential to remain with the organization for a lifetime is very realistic. They take care of their employees.

    Cons

    Like most companies, Boston was not without its challenges. The organization has worked tirelessly to overcome them however. Whether it be an FDA warning letter, or product issues, the company is relentless in correcting the situation and moving forward.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to innovate and acquire new and innovative devices.
