Pros

As a privately held company, we get to work on really interesting long term projects that a publicly traded company couldn't do. Also if you have a good idea, people will listen if you make a good case for it.

Cons

The vacation time per year could be better and how you accrue over the years needs to be improved. Also there is a parking shortage at the headquarters, which necessitates taking a shuttle several months per year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep and continue to improve the current communication channels from the top to the rank and file.

    Pros

    Bose has a very cool culture and a great environment to work in. Everyone there is brilliantly smart and for the most part very approachable. Bose also makes some pretty nifty products and the employee discount isnt too shabby. Overall the relaxed atmosphere actually leads to quite a bit of work getting done.

    Cons

    Salary's tend to be on the lowish side compared to a lot of other employers, but they are certainly still livable. It seems like certain people in certain higher level management roles don't really understand everything that goes on. The parking situation is pretty messed up as well with no where near enough spots.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to share more general information with employees. Bose is a private company which means very few people, including very few employees, know the full scope of what goes on in the company.

    Pros

    smart and amazing people.
    intersting projects
    good work environment
    small city... slightly less expenisve than boston.. but generally more expensive than the rest of the US
    nice socials to meet and understand other people and their projects...
    freedom to work anywhere anytime anyhow...
    freedom to choose the kind of work you want to do
    ever changing workforce and work tasks... so new people working wiht you on differnt projects every 8 months...
    motivated management
    in depth research available... soo college like enviornment with a team dedicated to research in a narrow field with loads of research funding and loose time limits

    Cons

    most people there are smarter than you.. so could develop an inferiority complex....
    no housing help in a small city with veyr few(and expensive) appartments
    people who cant cope with change will have a tough time adjusting to the ever changing and reorganizing work force(as the case with any big company)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give the first week as a slow introduction ot the new employees...
    let engineers be engineers... not data feeders or updating windchill or SAP pages...
