Promote people willing to take action and get things done.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Boston Scientific as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Good hourly salary and chances to work overtime to even make more money
    - Many opportunities to learn about how the healthcare industry operates
    - Constant exposure to Six Sigma and Lean Manufacturing
    - Flexible hours
    - Close to college town
    - Friendly co-workers

    Cons

    - Most of the time you will be doing validation testing for the engineers, which can get boring after a while
    - No benefits offered (health insurance, 401k, etc.)
    - No mentoring programs
    - Rural location

    Advice to Management

    Give co-ops and interns chances to participate in real engineering projects as members, not as peons that do the work that no one wants to. You will make them feel more excited about their job and convince them that this is the place to come when it's time for full-time job searching.

    I have been working at Boston Scientific (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    MikeMahoney has a great strategy for the organization. He is really driving to change the direction of the company and will be sucessful with the right changes in his team.

    Cons

    The politics at this company are the biggest challenge. There are a lot of old school people here who try to "lead" by instilling fear into people rather than leading by example, ecouragment and support.

    Advice to Management

    keep working with the current VP leaders to change their style of leadership to be the true support system they should be for their teams.
