More Chem. Lab. work. Provided more employee activities.
Chemistry Lab Technician IV, R&D Department (Former Employee), San Diego, CA – July 15, 2013
Pros: company picnics;with gymn
Cons: breaks depended on my lab. work.
Since I worked in the chem. lab., routine testings were my main concern, which provided more opportunities for me to interact with different departments when samples were collected. The company started as a start-up company (IVT) before it became Boston Scientific. The previous management made the employees feel like we were one big family.
Medical Assembler (Former Employee), Saint Paul, MN – July 5, 2013
Pros: good hours, good coworkers, good management, never ran out of inventory, never ran out of work, flexible, and expandable
Cons: very small window of opportunity to be hired full time.
I was proud of the product I was producing and had the flexibility to perform my job in the highest of standard in the quickest time possible. My area had a strong team with a growing output that was both challenging and enjoyable to work with. My management team went through a change halfway through my contract and the transition was smooth and production – more... kept going flawlessly. – less
Product builder/ OJT/SAP/ PBIII (Former Employee), Spencer, IN – June 27, 2013
Pros: when they went straight 8 hours and you got off at one or two
Cons: they cut down to one break and half hour lunch when they went straight eight hours
A typical work day is good, but the past three years hasn't been typical, they're doing a lot of cut backs and you have to work lots of over time to keep up. Management not so good, they move supervisors around about every three to four months, and they come in change things and expect you to be doing it in a week. Co-works are like working anywhere – more... else you have your nice ones that will help and you have those that won't help you, but stand around waiting for you to help them. The hardest part of the job was all the over time, cause they kept changing the hours and you had to go in earlier, I didn't like getting up at 2:00 am. The most enjoyable part was when I started their in 2004 they had plenty of help and it was fun to be their. – less
Receptionist (Former Employee), Valencia, CA – June 21, 2013
Pros: great people in other departments
Cons: i got no real restroom breaks
At first I really enjoyed going into work but then the longer I was there the most difficult my co-workers became. I was part time and my hours changed at least four times to work around the spoiled brat I covered for. My supervisor worked and spoiled a certain two people and others she couldn't care less about.
Medical Device Assembly (Current Employee), Plymouth, MN – June 8, 2013
Pros: we get a hour paybreak
Cons: working from 10pm to 6am
When I started to work for this company it was a fast paced work environment. Everything always had to be cleaned. cause of all the clean rooms that we had in the place. IT was very fun there, I got to meet alot of nice people who, on my first day made me feel welcome.
Assembly Technician/ Product Builder (Former Employee), San Clemente, CA – June 4, 2013
Pros: the culture was patient focused
Cons: the commute.
The employees at Boston truly cared about the patient. The focus on quality product was high, and the leadership was encouraging. Quality day was great for morale when patients of the life saving product came in to meet us. Management were leaders, not just managers. The hardest part of the job was leaving it.
