        Business Outlook


        Bose has great benefits and a good culture.


        Since Dr. Bose left, a new, strong leader has not emerged. They have numerous, big problems and need strong leadership that gets the buy in from the rest of the company. Closing divisions may be necessary, but a real vision is also needed to inspire the rank and file.

      Interview Tips

      Brand Marketing Strategist

      Have you ever done interview & just felt the team or company wasn’t sitting well with your gut? How does that factor into your decision if an offer is made? Obv a job interview time is limited so you never know but sometimes I just have a vibe it’s not a match and even though I may keep going in rounds, I’m always checking if I finally get the gut feeling this may be right. I had one where round 1-4 the mood was off. I felt I was being nitpicked harshly always, they rejected me in the end


      Technical Analyst

      Quality Assurance Associate

      For those who are/were in management- At how many years of experience did you get your first job as a manager? How did you make the jump into leadership? For people whose first management role started at a new company, how did you convince them since you had no prior experience in management??
