I worked at Bose part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Benefits are cool for the work you are doing, lots of opportunity to get products as gifts from the company. Especially during the holiday season. Bonus based on overall store numbers in which everybody takes part in ...call it team commission.

Cons

Pray you don't have a less than notable manager...micro managing maniac that trips over every single little thing than has customers ready to fight him in the store but yet the company still found a way to promote him....HR seems to cater to the brown noses...Seen a manager with an MBA and tons on experience get turned down and have a brown nose from the sticks with less education get the position over him...

Advice to Management

When a store which constantly hits its numbers start have a high turnover rate...maybe its the managers that are appointed in that store.

    I worked at Bose as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Corporate IT had an awesome group of people and managed places well. One of the best places to work.

    Cons

    The layoff of 2009 and the eventual moving of corporate IT to Stow started the slow, planful death of one of the best and well respected departments in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Your poorly thought out layoffs and shameful and disrespectful attitude to those that were left has resulted in many people leaving. You reap what you sow.

    Pros

    work / life ballance is very favorable compared to other companies. Salary and compensation are above average. Bose is a fairly stable company with very few layofffs.

    Cons

    There is a lack of organizational charts which makes it very difficult to navigate around an organization etc. Recent changes to the health plan were not desireable.

    Advice to Management

    Allow departments to produce org charts. Career groath potential does not seem to be talked about often. I would recomend career development plans going forward.
