    I have been working at Bose full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Sadly - None at this time

    Cons

    Terrible upper management (Director up to President). President was fired a couple months ago but that is too little too late. Outsourced all manufacturing and now some of the engineering work to China. This is failing miserably. Offered early retirement and then laid off all of their seasoned talent to be replaced by younger inexperienced people over the past 3 years. This has resulted in new products that literally don't work and/or can't be manufactured so the projects get cancelled. I'm not sure this company is going to survive more than a few years. If it does, it will be a much smaller company. This has all come about over the past 5 years with Dr. Bose's passing. So sad to see. They have announced more layoffs are coming.

    Too MB any chiefs and not enough workabees. Upper management direction keeps changing. Bose is like a revolving door with the amount of jobs going to Europe. Sad as it was at one point a great place to work

    I have been working at Bose full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Not many anymore. There are still pockets of really good people trying to save the company from itself.

    Cons

    What used to be and engineering and research company is now controlled by the been counters. In spite of all the employees of the rank and file telling upper management that any profit gain the see will be temporary, they refuse to listen. They have embarked on path that results in outsourcing everything, including the engineering, design and research. They are counting on the brand to carry them through.

    Pros

    Strong brand. Innovative, good culture, and very smart people. Some of the best coworkers I've ever had. Department manager is great. Work-Life balance.

    Cons

    Upper Management is clueless with the work being done at a lower level. Recent round of layoffs introduces many gaps in the company that hasn't been filled. Company shifted focus drastically and harshly, which results in broken processes and inefficiencies. The "new Bose" does not follow the values that the company was founded on. Bose is becoming like any other average company to work for.. with increased outsourcing of jobs and upper management that does that understand the business or people. As always, Bose has also been struggling to keep up in a fast changing industry and evolve their technology.
