I have been working at Bose full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

culture is so beneficial and technical opportunities are so great...few people leave. I've been at the company for 19 years and I'm about average. I don't plan to leave. If growth rate is not high enough, or if existing people do not leave, then new people will experience low growth opportunity.

Cons

this leads to slow growth opportunities...slow growth in title...still allows growth in learning which is what has caused me to stay for so long.

Advice to Management

generate much higher corporate growth rate. This seems to be the only thing that could remedy this. high employee retention is a very good thing overall.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great employee pricing. The products are cool and talking to customers about them is enjoyable.

    Cons

    Depending on the district you're in, it's hard to move up. The location I was at wasn't too fond of promoting internally.

    Advice to Management

    Promote internally. Focus on selling the product instead of putting so much emphasis on shows just so that you're in the green for the month.

    I have been working at Bose full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent people: smart, professional, fair
    Great products
    Good work/life balance most of the time
    Strong leaders

    Cons

    Since '08, promotion opportunities have been very limited
    Salary is average, bonus is below average
    Still have a few old time managers that need to be weeded out

    Advice to Management

    I like the path the company is on, keep going. Loosen up the purse strings on the bonus structure. You are going to start loosing excellent talent if promotion opportunities aren't available.
