      Pros

      Sonos has great people and works culture. That passes down from the executive and management levels. Work-life balance is also good. The Tech stack is complex and old so might take some time to understand it and integrate it with new things.

      Cons

      Salary too low compared to the market but I can only speak for software

      Great place to be

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Great people and team to work with. Respect is built into the company culture - Good quality of product and reputable brand image - Good compensation and comprehensive benefit package - Work/life balance is great! You work at your own pace (as long as getting tasks done on time) and the company gives you a lot of freedom - Employee discount is great

      Cons

      - Lack of opportunities to grow - Lack of diversity, especially in leadership groups - Becoming more cost driven over the years - Santa Barbara location: Beach town vibe might not be for everyone. The historic building though is unique and hip, its really running out of space and limiting employees' potentials.

      Great company

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great benefits, new hire and annual stock grants as well as 15% cash bonus Great leadership team. First company where I feel like our leadership team sincerely cares about the employees Flexible work-from-home policy 3 weeks PTO annually + Holidays + Birthday + Days for charity Great people Many opportunities for advancement. Once you have a job there, there are clear steps you can take to move up to the next level if you desire.

      Cons

      Ever since the George Floyd situation, management has been encouraging employees to take company time to read anti-racism and white guilt literature (note: encouraged, not required). Conservative views are not publicly spoken about, while progressive views are welcomed and talked about openly. I'd prefer to keep politics out of work altogether. I would still consider this a 5 star company, which is saying a lot. I plan on working here for years to come, and my hope is that the politicization of our work environment is only temporary and will blow over when public outrage moves on to some other topic.

      Pros

      Work with smart friendly people. Everyone is respectful and professional.

      Cons

      No regular pay raises or promotions unless you’re an engineer. Your manager has all the control in terms of your career growth or promotion.
