SENIOR COPYWRITER (Former Employee) –  Framingham, MANovember 16, 2017
You'll work hard. You may work long hours. You may find yourself in an intensely competitive group. But if you succeed, you will find the work inspiring, your colleagues enjoyable, and the perks amazing.

Used to be a great workplace, budget cuts and unrealistic goals doomed the company.
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  Framingham, MAOctober 23, 2017
When I first hired in, the company was great. Great benefits, great advancement opportunities, great structure and management top to bottom. Now, three years later, upper management fired literally 95% of the company. Upper management is ALL retiring early this year with their huge compensation checks and pensions. Middle management micro manages the stupid stuff and completely ignores important things. They roadblocked all lower management from any opportunity to grow. Even more corporate positions are being removed and folded into the responsibilities of the survivors. Read that again, SURVIVORS. Annual pay increases used to be 5-20%, now they're about .25-2% increases. HR department is now three people, all of whom think someone else is responsible for liason with retail. Ditch this ship as soon as you can, the company has no vision and no direction. It's a sinking ship.
Pros
Great employee discount
Cons
everything else.

Amazing company culture, great people to work with. I really liked the balance between day to day tasks and project work. Hardest part of the company, is to get in the door.

not a fair place to work
Material Handler (Current Employee) –  Yuma, AZOctober 17, 2017
Bose is a lace where there is a lot of favoritism .Managers are nice but not efficient. Not a fair place to work die to a lot of favoritism. I think the hardest part working at boe is that maneger are not equal to everyone and they do not do the work correctly.

Sr. Data Analyst (Former Employee) –  Westborough, MAOctober 16, 2017
Good location. A lot of people taking early retirement leaving a lot of gaps and little replacement for those roles. Not much growth found in departments.

VISUAL AND SALES LEAD (Current Employee) –  Sarasota, FL 34243October 10, 2017
Bose is fun place to work as it is easy to get excited about the product. You get to hear movies and music that you love like you have never heard before. Management varies from lack luster to excellent dependent on store location and market.

Great Company
Technical Acquisition Advisor (Former Employee) –  Framingham, MAOctober 5, 2017
Bose was a positive experience. Bose essence and values are important and it shows. The are transparent about changes, good or bad. It is a healthy place to work and I recommend it. The TA team is thoughtful and they produce. The engineering teams have great leadership and partner with TA and that is great. Also, the products are amazing.
Pros
People, innovation and products
Cons
Tools, sources and investment could be much better.

There is a lot of change happening
Global Indirect Category Manager (Current Employee) –  Framingham, MAOctober 4, 2017
Changes in the company are causing a lot of stress with employees. Most employees are fearful their job will be eliminated / outsourced or moved overseas within the next few years.
Not a bad place to work if you are lucky enough to get a decent manager and you can deal with uncertainty.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
New employees are considered outsiders for years

gradually loosing its corporate culture

the company was originally focused on an engineering driven culture of excellence. It seemed as margins fell and the competition grew, the things that made the company attractive gradually diminished.

Unrealistic Corporate Expectations
ASSISTANT STORE MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Grapevine, TXSeptember 25, 2017
This job caused me to have a nervous breakdown. They place unrealistic expectations upon their managers and then threaten them with their job security if they do not perfectly meet those standards.

Bose Corporation was a fantastic place to work. I hated to leave but had to. The had great products and treated their employees with respect. Although partially commissioned based, most goals were attainable as their policy was to put financial resources back into its on product research and its employees
Pros
Great training programs for staff, attainable financial bonus goals, treats employees well
Cons
retail work hours can be challenging due to seasonal needs (i.e. xmas)
