I worked at Sonos full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Lots of free food, generous product discounts, casual dress, passionate and smart colleagues, MUSIC!

Cons

No work life balance, sick days are really "work from home" days, some colleagues even called into meetings while on vacation! "Trial by fire" training for new employees...

    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.
