    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 Management

    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

    Boston Scientific is a fun atmosphere to work in. I had a great boss. The opportunity was there for the ambitious to move up quickly.

    Cons

    I can easily see how one could get complacent in their current position and get kinda stuck if you don't have a go-get-it attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on motivating, In a big corporation money isn't always an option for motivating your employees. Find creative ways to get them involved, to make them want to be involved.

    Pros

    Great company. Great culture. Nice office space & amenities - a real campus feel.

    Cons

    Boston Scientific will always do what is best for Boston Scientific, however, even a company built on acquisition has, at some point, to take stock and focus on its talent more than the bottom line. A text book evolution that is taking the company some time to grasp.

    Advice to Management

    Life's too short. Forget trying to do what you think Boston Scientific wants you to do. Break the mold. Be yourself. That's why they hired you. Be innovative. Be transparent and communicate with one another.

    -Great Professional Development opportunities
    -Co-workers and managers were extremely helpful during my internship

    Pros

    Good atmosphere, structured career path to grow in the company. They are also interested in your studies, so they will give you time.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to obtain help to increase headcount, at times the workload was too big to handle and the deadlines are at stake, meaning extra time that depending on your manager can be compensated or not. So if you do not have the manager that will level back the situation you can be working overtime without any extra benefit.

  11. Good people and good opportunities if you're motivated.

    Pros

    There are a lot of career paths available.

    Cons

    It's a large company so it may be hard to get noticed if you don't have some people working to help you advance.

    Advice to Management
