    I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    benefits, vacation, work from home, education reimbursement

    Cons

    promotional opportunity is limited, company has a political climate that can be difficult to work in, people who survive the layoffs are expected to pick up the extra work of those who were let go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is still really top heavy and there are lack of opportunities.

    I worked at Boston Scientific full-time

    Pros

    Many perks such as dry cleaning services, bank onsite, renovated gym and cafe, ondite daycare, and clean facilities, and a great 401K plan.

    Cons

    There are not many positions you can move to internally. You're either an admin, analyst, or an engineer is what I have found. Management doesn't really encourage career growth if it means you're leaving the department you're currently in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage career growth and recognize the strengths of each employee. Also, saying "Thank you" once in awhile goes far, as we are all human and appreciate sincerity.
