    I worked at Bose full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Bose has some of the best people to work with! Decent benefits with a yearly bonus if corporate plan parameters are met. Nice facilities with a very knowledgeable and friendly group of employees to work with.

    I worked at Bose full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Some good people left to work with, but they're dropping FAST. Decent benefits. A GREAT legacy deserving of better stewardship.

    Cons

    Incompetent and disconnected executive leadership across the board whose cumulative failures are largely responsible for the growing instability within the company. A fatally insular culture that perpetuates a negative dysfunctional feedback loop that has been eroding the bedrock of a once great workplace and company at an ever-increasing rate as the company sheds employees, shutters stores, sells facilities and IPs, and outsources more and more jobs at cut-rate prices for equally cut-rate results. An insiders club culture of cronyism that promotes individuals from within the same out-dated pool of insular and irrelevant groupthink as opppsed to sourcing the best talent with the best skills. A company with GREAT values that they sadly no longer live. Lots of talking the talk but not walking the walk. Pay is not competitive enough to attract and retain the best talent given what is expected of them for what they're paid.
