    Pros

    Great corporate culture, exciting products and an excellent team of employees. Customers come from a variety of social economic backgrounds which make the interactions interesting.

    Cons

    Compensation growth is almost nonexistent, glass ceiling if you are not of Danish Decent. Company continually misses launch dates and then does not have the production capacity to put product on the shelf.

    Advice to Management

    Stop launching new products unless you can have the inventory to sell immediately after launch, otherwise build inventory then launch. People don't want to wait.

    Pros

    Excellent support from higher-ups, and pretty good health benefits.

    Cons

    In order to really see money in this company from a commission pov, you need to be be here at least 2-3+ years before the money really begins to come in.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more one on one product tutorial rather than just relying on computer training and reading material as the manuals can seem overwhelming and/or boring and there is a lot of useless knowledge in the online training program.


  3. Fun, but with no possibility to get education

    Pros

    Well. You have free hands a lot of the way, to form your work situation like you wan't it. There is a lot of new tech. so you are always facing cool products

    Cons

    You can't "grow" in B&O, I've been working there for 7 years, without opportunity to go develop my education, due to cost.
    Projects are starting as "great" but goes to "okay" because off budget cuts.
    The last years I've had to "deffend" B&O, every time i talk with someone and they find out I'm from B&O
    Firering rounds 1-2 times every year (for the last 7 years)

    Advice to Management

    Spend money in your staff. invest in HR, people working for B&O Struer are getting mad, because they work like hell for the company, but is never thanked, and doesn't evolve

    Pros

    Great product, and you meet some of the most amazing people in NYC and beyond. You also get to see ridiculous homes in the NY area. If you're on the technical side of things, you can get involved with top-tier integration of high end audio video products in people's homes

    Cons

    Typical corporate problems. All the crap flows down river, no one listens, blah blah blah. It's a big company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your senior sales people, who make up the majority of the sales numbers you post, like they were brand new employees.
