    Nice people but very poorly run

    Pros

    Great brand, great products most of the time

    Cons

    The environment is toxic, negative and almost everyone is unhappy. CEOs try but can’t seem to figure out how to run a company. Employees are moved from job to job where they have no experience so the business always fails. If they hire smart people from the outside they don’t want to listen to the feedback and eventually those people either leave out of frustration or are fired. Add to that nonstop layoffs to the list and it’s a perfect storm. I’m afraid for the future of Bose.

Culture
We recently celebrated the start of a new fiscal year- and so we chose to celebrate in style! At our corporate headquarters in Framingham, as well as at events around the world, we paused to convene and enjoy time with friends, food, and fun. Spending an afternoon at work with free food, beverages, live music, product demonstrations and giveaways, games.... not a bad way to start the year! Thanks to all the employees who came together to make this event series great.

Culture
Black History Month is an annual reminder to reflect on the impact Black people and Black culture have had on the world. This year, we celebrate Black musicians who used their art to give a glimpse into the Black experience. When speeches don’t say enough and snapshots don’t capture the full picture, music has the power to connect us as humans so we can shape our future together. As part of our internal Black History Month celebration, we were thrilled to have two music scholars — Kyle Brooks, PhD. from the Methodist Theological School in Ohio and Deborah Smith Pollard, Ph.D. from the University of Michigan-Dearborn — lead us in conversation about the important role Black protest music plays in uniting all who care about racial equity.
