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 Management

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

    Pros

    Bose has a strong concentration of very smart, motivated engineers, and there is tremendous support for professional development within the company. It is very satisfying to work on consumer products that people love. Bose has a culture of strong shared values that runs very deep, and although sometimes it seems like people are "drinking the kool-aid", the values are actually genuine at the highest levels of management. In most of the company, work/life balance is valued and supported (this is not true in the automotive division).

    Cons

    The lack of adequate parking is a surprisingly big problem. Leadership in new product planning is very weak. The cafeteria is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Inject some imagination into the New Product Planning group.

  2. Bose has a great environment that promotes innovation

    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 Management

    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.
