    Most roles allow for flexible hours to work around other commitments. There's a formal Work Flex program that allows employees to find a work schedule that works for them while also covering their job responsibilities.

Boston Scientific is a great place for women and men to work. The culture and structure promotes opportunities for growth, flexibility and recognition. Like many companies, whether you can access these benefits sometimes depends on your particular manager. I have heard from some individuals that their managers aren't open to it, even though the company overall promotes this culture. My own experience generally has been that when I've asked for these things, I have been allowed to earn/justify them, and I felt like it was quite fair.

Overall, BSC is wonderful place to work. Culture vary by Division, but in my experience, BSC is flexible and supportive, regardless of where you may be in your life.

Be vocal about your needs, or your employer won't know what you need in order to be happy. Don't expect them to know it, but take control of it yourself!

    My department specifically has great flexibility--we can work from home, have flex time for family/home obligations, and have a priority of promoting the right person for the job regardless of gender. Other departments are not as flexible, and I know have struggled to understand the value of flex work and work from home. Slowly, the culture is changing for the better.

I would highly recommend working for Boston Scientific! The company has a healthy work environment with work/life balance and a great work flex program. There are a lot of great benefits offered along with great perks such as an on-site gym and work out classes throughout the day that are free for all employees. We are highly involved with the community and STEM along with employee resources groups. I would go on and on but overall I would recommend this company to anyone, not just engineers and scientists but anyone looking for a great company to work for!

    Coming from a dual working household with two little kids, I need flexibility with my hours and working remotely, Boston Scientific gives me that flexibility and never questions me at all. As long as my performance is not affected, I am able to work the hours I need to accommodate my personal life.

Boston Scientific is a pretty amazing place. I am a person who wants to feel part of a bigger mission - the company works so hard to give everyone a chance to understand their impact. A big event sites hold annually is the "Everyone Makes and Impact Day". You hear patient stories about the devices they've received, often made at your location. The leaders talk about innovation and are extremely transparent. I love the inclusive feel and willingness to connect to help you learn.

    It is role specific as to the flexibility. For example, if you are on the production side, obviously there are shifts and very specific hours. My role is within a function that does offer the flexibility because much of my work is done virtually. I am able to adjust hours to make it to soccer games and swim meets, appointments for the kids. I am also able to have flexibility for work from home days in my role.
