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.

    I have been working at Bose full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A great company in regards to products, discounts, and company bonus payouts. The work/life balance is superb as almost all managers treat you professionally and allow you the freedom to come and go as needed with no looking over your shoulder.

    Cons

    The lack of opportunities for advancement can be demoralizing. It seems a select few are tapped for promotions or offered the opportunity to try something new, which leads to advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Too many layers of management!!! That, and the friends of friends who have been put in positions they don't deserve. If this were a public company many middle managers would be gone, and there is too much wasted spending through nepotism and no watchdog ...the company could be that much more profitable.
