    Layoff the Manager I and II's Pt 2

    Layoff the Manager I’s and II’s ……..hmmm……….

    Do you really think without “management” at this level, the company would be in better shape? Do you really think letting the engineers run around doing their projects without any guidance is the solution? Interdepartmental alignment for goals doesn’t need to exist right? Do you really think that directors will have the time to manage 70+ direct reports?

    Perhaps you might consider thinking before you post.

    This Manager II although not always in full agreement with company decisions, comes into work, putting in the 50 hours a week and trying to make a positive impact to the people and the business. I assure you that most Managers did not get to these positions by being dead weight as you would imply, rather we have exhibited past and current performance characteristics that you seem to lack. Further, I will stack up my work load and performance against your any day of the week and twice on Sunday!

    I would suggest you reevaluate your position and if working at BSX, consider if your desire is to become part of the problem or part of the solution.

    • A 50 hour work week?Holy Enchilada! Aye aye aye aye! I spend 50 hours a week just hanging in front of Home Depot (Depot la Casa) looking for yobs in the tomato fields? Do you think Boston Scientifico would hire me as a manager uno too?I have many experience picking tomatos and that is more experience then most manager uno's at boston scientifico!

      • OK OK OK, Wow. The original point was not that all of BSC's mngr's. were worthless...they aren't, the point was that those without the 4+ year degree always get overlooked, even when they are viable leaders and organizers. This was,yes posted on this board but it doesn't jsut apply to BSC. With all the new direction of the workforce, due to the manufacuring climate moving were ever, there are those with history and expeirence as their education that do not get a chance.... There is, in my opinion, no where that a 24-30 year old needs to be put in to a leadership roll of managment. Not only is it bad for the company, it places them into a position for failure.. They simply need more time to learn the real life of management by seeing others succeed and fail. See what works and what doesn't then improve on those and go at it full bore.
        That was the original point to this...Kyle I am sorry but you are off the point again, and making very imature type conversation. Most of us are here for mature dialogue. Sorry buddy but that's the way it is.

    • Spoken like the true ass kiss you are - people like you live in this imaginary la la land - pretending to make a difference and sucking up to anyone you can. Go pander your crap somewhere else. The only thing managers in this company are worried about is their bonus - and as far as quality - bells and whistles - and you know it.
