    I worked at Boston Scientific as an intern

    Pros

    People were incredibly nice and pay was very good for an internship. Facilities were top notch. I was not stuck behind a desk all day and was able to improve my communication skills by interacting with people on the production floor.

    Cons

    It did not appear they had a plan for their interns when they hired them. I had many small projects that came up throughout the summer but nothing that was really going to stand out on my resume. Not much guidance on what was expected.

    I worked at Boston Scientific

    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.
