    Pros

    Great friendly people, high performers, dedicated professional. Great products and reputation in the market. Fairly autonomous in the ability to run your own business, well it used to be anyway !

    Cons

    Getting tighter anf tighter everyday with my immediate manager making poor business decisions that are costing the Company. Lots of talk about employees, but payscale going backwards for the last 5 years in line with the share stock value !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont be hypocritical. You say you want feedback, well how about you listen to it all, and not just filter out the parts you want to focus on, and put a spin on the rest.

    Pros

    Diverse portfolio of projects available to work on

    Cons

    It is what you make of it. It is your responsibility to involve yourself. If you don't, you won't maximise your levels of enjoyment in the day-to-day scheme of things

    Pros

    Well paid internship. Excellent path into leadership development program. Engaging office culture. Hard work but great place to learn. Fun office perks including lunches, dinners, and team building events.

    Cons

    Boston Scientific is a large multinational company with the typical faults of big business culture. There is favoritism and political maneuvering throughout the corporate ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage entrepreneurial thinking.

    Pros

    Work life balance it's good. There is a lot of work for the amount of staff, but overall it balances out with slow periods. The people are great and genius are also great.

    Cons

    Understaffed. Disorganized at times. Management can be disconnected at times. so much focus on cost savings bottom line it's hard to pull off a miracle every time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people at all levels

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

    Pros

    Good benefits; good training. Work-life balance is very good. Ability to work from home when needed

    Cons

    After being there for 10 years, there were a lot of ups and downs (too many changes), but I think the company is finally on track.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wished the executives would walk around the building a bit more and get to know the "peons" in the trenches!

    Great company

    I worked at Boston Scientific

    Pros

    Great company and great culture - everyone was committed to their jobs and willing to go the extra mile. Lots of benefits for employees including an onsite credit union, gym with free classes, day care and great cafeteria.

    Cons

    The only downside is that the location is tough if you're used to being in Boston. It's a hike from downtown and there's not much around the Marlborough campus. However, BSC was piloting some initiatives like a coach bus from the city to the campus each day to save commuters hours of driving in traffic.
