after being fully trained in all aspects in the production of medical device I was then requested to test completed devices for leaks . Problems arose in this section and I suggested ways to eliminate these problems which were implemented. The hardest part of the Job was having to stop work due to machine failure or other aspect beyond my control. I did not like idleness and often requested to assist others.
Relaxed non hurried workplace
Pressure to avoid human errors and to be absolutely perfect each time
Boston Scientific has a good grassroots organization and treat employees well. The pay is low for a Builder, but there are opportunities for growth and development. Overall, a good place to be and you are allowed to take what you want from the company.
Great Atmosphere for Growth and Inclusive Environment
R&D (Former Employee) – County Galway – 7 February 2018
My project in Boston Scientific involved Development of an anticalcification in vitro model to study the effect of a novel polyepoxide crosslinker on bovine pericardium. Calcification is one of the main mechanisms for valve tissue degradation in bioprosthetic heart valves in-vivo. Interestingly we managed to decrease the tissue calcification considerably.
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.
