I have been working at Bang & Olufsen full-time

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Bang & Olufsen (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free beer and bagels at the corporate office

    Cons

    Abysmal company morale, oppressively stressful working environment and nightmarishly complicated procedures for what should be basic everyday tasks. Constantly at the receiving end of complaints and insults from pretentious and obnoxiously materialistic customers with no grasp or concern for the other 99.99% of the world.
    Frivolously wasteful, offensively self aggrandizing and needlessly exclusive company culture focused on generally unattainable products and overly complex methods and procedures that ultimately do not matter to anyone anywhere outside of the ultra weathy clients that more often than not get treated with disrespect from store employees.
    With the exception of several people in this company I have never experienced such a terrible culture or uncomfortable working environment. This job made me so irritable, negative and unapproachable that my family hates the fact that I worked there for so long.
    Additionally, the overpriced, supposedly cutting edge top-of-the-line products are literally garbage. It is shocking how many materials get wasted, how un-user-friendly the equipment is and how many clients have negative experiences with B&O.
    Avoid, avoid, avoid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Terminate the staff. Seriously. Fire everyone to liberate the countless emotionally trapped and mentally shackled employees from this modern age slavery.
