I worked at Sonos full-time

Pros

Great company, hip innovative atmosphere, cool products (market leader in wifi speakers). Lots of employee perks and amenities, you can choose east coast (Cambridge) or west coast (Santa Barbara) locations.

Cons

Experiencing rapid growth pains. Organization is a little unfocused and disorganized, R&Rs and expecations between departments not always clear.

Advice to Management

Some departments need a little more strategic vision.

    I worked at Sonos full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent Individual Contributors with whom to work. Some of the best UX, and the technical expertise in networking and sound is impressive.

    Cons

    Senior management has a few over-promoted techies who are ruining the show.

    Advice to Management

    Come on guys.. get your act together for hiring Sr. Directors! Choosing a director from an industry segment (like gaming) with completely different business requirements is folly. Your collection of Directors kept around but 'out to pasture' will eventually be noticed by investors.
