I have been working at Bose full-time

Pros

Great management, high quality product, freedom to be creative, wonderful coworkers.

Cons

No eating or drinking (other than water) at ones desk is annoying, limited parking at The Mountain location can result in being stuck in a remote lot and taking a shuttle, only 2 weeks vacation to start, dress code (no flip flops, no shorts).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get with the program and dump some of these rules. Allow eating and drinking at our desk and more vacation time. Bose is a great company otherwise but there are just too many rules

    Pros

    There is support to create lean processes and be innovative. Work life balance had been great for my four year tenure thus far.

    Cons

    Just recently made some unfavorable changes to health care plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue what you're doing. Play for the long run.

    I worked at Bose part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits are cool for the work you are doing, lots of opportunity to get products as gifts from the company. Especially during the holiday season. Bonus based on overall store numbers in which everybody takes part in ...call it team commission.

    Cons

    Pray you don't have a less than notable manager...micro managing maniac that trips over every single little thing than has customers ready to fight him in the store but yet the company still found a way to promote him....HR seems to cater to the brown noses...Seen a manager with an MBA and tons on experience get turned down and have a brown nose from the sticks with less education get the position over him...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When a store which constantly hits its numbers start have a high turnover rate...maybe its the managers that are appointed in that store.
