    I have been working at Bose full-time

    Pros

    This is an organization full of people with great values who really care about what they do and how the products the organization delivers can make a difference in peoples lives. Strong values-based culture. Excellent learning and development opportunities. Far from a perfect organization, yet leadership owns up to opportunities escalated from employees and do their best to fix issues.

    Cons

    Communication is often a challenge and can be a bit muddled. Many different channels and vehicles to get important updates. Senior management seems to be working on this, though.

    I worked at Bose full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    All the toys you'd want to use in getting the best results. Great environment and easy access to smart people who are willing to help you with difficult problems.

    Cons

    High pressure in product development. This is a natural result of the schedule driven nature. May not get kudos for your inventions if you're not an MIT graduate.

    Advice to Management

    Give better benefits to those who get patents.
