    I have been working at Bowers & Wilkins full-time

    Pros

    - Unlimited pto - Free lunch - Nice office - Test out new audio products.

    Cons

    - Tons of micro-management - Small talent pool for hiring = many incompetent employees - Team vs team or individual vs individual attitude. Lacks a unified vision.

    Advice to Management

    - C-Suite is invisible. No management or vision from that front. - Middle management plays favorites, which often clouds the decision-making process. - No transparency.
