    I worked at Bowers and Wilkins full-time

    Pros

    Relatively relaxed working environment. R&D of genuine importance to the company. Good opportunities for training. Decent company benefits. Only very occasionally required to work out of hours.

    Cons

    Upper management seemed invisible to most employees, they did not mix together. Not enough attention paid to company culture. Salary not particularly high. Too cautious, not willing to take enough risk with new product development. Hiring process far too slow.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on improving the company culture, improve visibility of upper management to lower level employees and speed up the hiring process when a need for more staff is highlighted.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Bowers and Wilkins in January 2012.

    Interview

    Very quite town and company paid train and taxi. Some technical questions asked which were clearly to test academic knowledge as the information asked could easily be obtained from a single click on Google. A total of 2 interviews with the 2nd one being much more difficult, probably an exception as I was told it was very close between myself and another candidate.

    Interview Questions

    • 70% Personal questions and 30% technical, including questions on the problem they were facing and testing technical skills such as asking to draw graph to stress vs strain, melting point of steel approx.   1 Answer
