    I worked at Sennheiser Electronic full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great products. Willingness to develop new products in Germany. Some very nice co-workers.
    Good exposure to the market via participation in many trade shows and access to many different channels.
    Very good benefits.

    Cons

    Below market salaries. Management uses excuse that salary reflects Connecticut shoreline but they are way off considering national averages. Strange out of touch culture at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management relies way too much on the product selling itself and at the same time will talk the talk about how employees are their greatest asset. If thats true, get competitive with wages. Related to this, realize that poor retention is ultimately a hit to the bottom line. As the industry environment gets more and more challenging people in the company (not the brand) will become the face of the company. Management could also learn something from the from-out-of nowhere metoric rise of Beats headphones.

    I worked at Sennheiser Electronic full-time

    Pros

    The employee activity committee was good - they planned lots of fun events.

    Cons

    Pay was very low - they are not very competitive for the marketplace. Opportunities for advancement were nonexistent. Not overly willing to listen to employee suggestions for improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider raising your salary base to be more competitive, and offer more opportunities for growth within the company.

    I have been working at Sennheiser Electronic full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are outstanding and way above any industry standard. Communication is open and transparent. Very metric focused which makes evaluations more objective. The company has terrific products and a fanatical user base. Very cool industry to be a part of. Not so many free tixs anymore but that is caused by a decrease in album sales and focus on tour income by promoters/artists.

    Cons

    The location is the CT shoreline but rural. It's not terrible but you're driving to get a sandwich. Parent company can be slow to react on some things which can be frustrating to some.
