Production Operator (Current Employee) – Galway – 14 April 2017
My shift starts at 7:30 till 3:30 we get 2 30 minute breaks. The management are great and my colleges in work are very friendly everyone get along together. I've learned alot about the Medical Device industry at Boston Scientific.
Boston Scientific is a good company with career progression prospects if you are in the right team or get a good mentor. It's also about your own initiative to approach your superiors and let them know what your ambition and what career path you wish to take, and they will support you. Like any other place you get good and bad managers/supervisors with different leadership styles and qualities but it is knowing how to deal with each character - mainly just focus on your goal. Great workplace culture of quality excellence and diversity Some tasks can be challenging but it's a learning curve Most enjoyable part of the job was dynamism no day was the same I learnt new things everyday.

Early start and worked on the same step for 8 hours a day 5 days Monday to Friday.Supervisor was an absolute tool who was always sneering at us from a distance checking numbers constantly and generally unhelpful to say the least.If there had been cross training it would have improved morale but this was not an option for us as agency workers(ICE) another shower of bloodsuckers.
Clean, bonus, canteen, co-workers.
No cross-training, management ignorant, boring repetitive, no chance of advancement from product builder.
Product Builder (Current Employee) – Galway – 31 July 2016
12 years in the Galway plant.Was a great place to work not anymore respect for no one hard to get the holidays you want.They just use people now so they don't have to pay proper salary they are even trying to get the Product builders III to do supervisors job for very little extra pay.No matter how much extra work and hours you put in it's all the same outcome when they are finished with you it's back to trying to make things as hard as possible for you in the clean room.And whatever you do don't get sick.Plenty of other good employers in the Galway area now avoid if you want respect as an employee.They are constantly trying to cut costs for people at the bottom scale while management give themselves top bonuses.

Start each day at set hours. Reach your target each hour while making sure to follow each procedure correctly and efficiently. Learnt a great deal about different medical devices and products. Very rewarding job, Management and co-workers all very friendly and approachable. The hardest part about the job was if some of the machinery on a line was slow so trying to hit the target on time and efficiently however this would not occur often. The most enjoyable part of the job was hitting each target correctly and efficiently.

Production Operator (Former Employee) – Galway, G – 24 August 2015
Worked on a production line producing catheters. I learned a good deal about the health issues that boston scientific deal with. My management pushed us hard to reach targets but I had no issue with my management team. I felt I had a good relationship with them. My co-workers were hard working and made it an easy going place to work. The hardest part of the job was being on the same step day in day out without being cross trained on another step. * hours every day on the same step was demoralising. The bonuses was a huge incentive.
Electronic and Equipment Engineer, Co-Op (Former Employee) – Galway, Ireland – 17 August 2015
This company was a pleasant place to work, thanks to the flexible hours I could plan my week the way I had to and the workflow was steady and continuous. The people working in the company were very resourceful and working in a team environment with them was a pleasure. The same goes for the management, which thanks to the approach, allowed to focus on the necessary things at hand. I can not think what I would consider as the hardest part of work, but the most enjoyable part of work was the communication with the people I worked with.
Flexible Hours, Benefits, A lot of company events.
