I have been working at Bose full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Benefits are good. I left the company with plenty of product! There are bonuses (if you can qualify) and health insurance if you need it (I didn't at the time)

Cons

It's near impossible (on a rotating yearly cycle) to hit the numbers to bonus. My first year we bonus, some times double, and the second year we didn't at all. This tends to be the trend, so don't bank on getting the monthly bonuses.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

One would think the upper management would be great, seeing what an amazing man Dr. Bose is, but they are not held to a high standard. After reporting my store manager for her behavior, I had a x on my back, and was gone a few months later. I left because of the behavior of my store manager and the lack of care taken by the district manager and corporate.

    I worked at Bose full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Products are great and if you are involved with new product development, there is plenty of opportunities for you. People are nice and there is an overall collaborative work environment. Good work-life balance. Company culture and values are embedded in everything they do.

    Cons

    Compensation is average at best, career growth may be a limiting factor for some. Big time boys club in some areas of the company. Very risk-averse, conservative culture. Not global enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunities for career development. Continue getting comfortable with taking risks.
