    I worked at Bowers and Wilkins full-time

    Pros

    Relatively relaxed working environment. R&D of genuine importance to the company. Good opportunities for training. Decent company benefits. Only very occasionally required to work out of hours.

    Cons

    Upper management seemed invisible to most employees, they did not mix together. Not enough attention paid to company culture. Salary not particularly high. Too cautious, not willing to take enough risk with new product development. Hiring process far too slow.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on improving the company culture, improve visibility of upper management to lower level employees and speed up the hiring process when a need for more staff is highlighted.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Bowers and Wilkins full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Speaker training if your new to the world of Hi-Fi. They have a fantastic visitors centre that has a custom cinema & several demo rooms for listening sessions. A lounge area so you can get hands on with all the core Hi-Fi & New Media Products.

    Very approachable management & totally recommend working for the company.

    Cons

    If your new to the world of Hi-Fi, the training offered can feel a little rushed, my advice is to never stop reading & keep up to date with the latest speaker technology.
