Boston Scientific was a Medical Device company. I worked as a temp hired from an agency and I was never a permanent employee. I was moved to about three to four different departments. Overall it was a great place. Boston Scientific closed, company relocated to Costa Rica.
Production Supervisor of Medical devices (Current Employee) – Maple Grove, MN – May 7, 2016
Starting at 5:45am does not balance with home. Training for how Boston Scientific does daily business is poor. Does not treat Product builds with respect. Too much over time in many areas of the business.
Productive and employees benefited to their incentives.
Group Lead/QA Inspector (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – May 2, 2016
As a Lead and QA Inspector it is a very challenging job since it is always production was involved. But, I have learned a lot on how to deal with every nationality and their culture and adjust myself to them and in that way it would be easy for me to stand for them as their lead and the same thing as a QA Inspector. The management was very good and fair to all of the employees. Everybody is different but, still I consider them as my good friend. The hardest part of the job is when the production is short and could not reach the quota in each day. The most enjoyable one is when all the work was accomplished before the end of the day and consider it a very successful achievement.
Lacking Work/Life Balance and a lot of Windshield Time
Field Clinical Representative, Cardiac Rhythm (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – April 25, 2016
Some days you work, some days you work less- but overall you're on the hook 24hrs a day for anything possibility issue with a patient considered to have heart issues. Working in a small team of electrophysiology and device specialists across the state makes for a lot of driving (compensated through a 3rd party mileage reimbursement company). You're in as many cath labs and clinics as your territory provides on a daily basis. Compensation between clinical reps and sales reps is a point of contention for the amount of work one does versus the other. Personal life takes a back seat to the needs of an exponentially growing patient population.
Knowledgeable, Effective, Productive People / Stressful Environment
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Saint Paul, MN – April 17, 2016
Great people. Highly productive, effective, judicious, ethical, and patient-centric. Lower management levels (Directors and below) tend to be awesome. Very little contact with more senior management.
Stressful environment due to exacting requirements for building medical devices, but not more than necessary. Markets are pretty tough, so frequently RIFs for the last few years. Leads to a somewhat poor life/work balance for most. But everyone works hard to get things done and done right.
Lots of great, smart, productive people
Stressful environment, constant RIF concerns, terrible IT infrastructure
Product Builder/Co-ordinator (Current Employee) – Maple Grove, MN – April 13, 2016
Boston scientific is a very fun place to work especially with a nice co workers around me and well rounded excellent benefist for their employees.Sometimes the work can be a little bit tasking and demanding with a plan to work extra hours to be able to meet up
HR Service Representative. (Former Employee) – Natick, MA – March 30, 2016
Exposure to varied technical systems and great opportunity to help employees determine what benefits had accrued to them by virtue of their number of months with the company. Learned quite a bit with Boston Scientific.
PRODUCT BUILDER – ASSEMBLER LEVEL 3 (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – March 15, 2016
Every day is a new experience and challenging on my part which drives me to learn a lot of knowledge and skills that help me grow as an individual. It's a tiring job but it motivates me to work hard to achieve my goal and enjoy every moment cause i always want to go on OT.
Medical Assembler (Former Employee) – Arden Hills, MN – March 7, 2016
Very busy position, a plus in my book. Really liked learning what Boston Scientific is all about. Hardest part of the job was getting used to standing for the entire shift. Most co-workers were awesome.
