    Pros

    The atmostphere at Bose is fantastic. Everybody is happy to be there and proud of the products that they are selling. They have a true "open-door" policy that makes it every easy to communicate with management.

    Cons

    Being a reasonably large corporation, Bose does struggle with the limitations of some larger companies. There is a lot of red tape to get through for significant changes to occur. Their approach to creating audio products is not to be a lead innovator, but rather to see how the market responds to new technology, and then to refine that technology and incorporate it after it has been successful for awhile.

    Advice to Management

    I truly enjoyed my tenure at Bose and would love to work there again at any point in the future. I have highly recommended Bose to everyone that ha asked.
