The company is always changing, and there communication could always be better, but the atmosphere and environment is amazing! A lot of music and fun goes on in the workplace. Clients are demanding more than ever, but they are loyal to the company.

The manage for customer service has no business working at Bose .Please get rid of her go back to the drawing board and start rebuilding trust and confidence in your employees .You just lost a great employee that has worked there from the time the plant started and other great ones earlier.especially customer repair . Stop hiring friends the ones from next door all you doing is starting clicks amongst management.
Very very poor management like it's bad .No body believes you doing anything about it .
Bose is a world renowned name in the audio field. It was fun and interesting. We relied on top notch demos to enhance the amazing sound of our products. Also had an extremely generous discount and even received a full surround sound system for used as long as we worked for the company.
A great company to work with, innovating audio tech.
Bose Elite Team/Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Aurora, IL – June 26, 2018
Bose is a great company that has allowed me to work not only to better myself, but to train and help others in our industry. A typical day at work starts with me making a "huddle" or a comprehensive analysis of daily goals, average ticket goals, and comparison vs. the rest of the month. Conducting inventory counts to make sure stock levels are adequate for the upcoming week. Checking the staffs training courses, making sure everyone is prepared and ready with the newest training resources.
Sales Specialist (Former Employee) – Napa, CA – June 23, 2018
This is an organization full of people with great values who really care about what they do and how the products the organization delivers can make a difference in peoples lives. Strong values-based culture. Excellent learning and development opportunities. Far from a perfect organization, yet leadership owns up to opportunities escalated from employees and do their best to fix issues.

Manager Acoustics (Former Employee) – Framingham, MA – May 30, 2018
I do not consider this information to be relevant to this process. I am filling this out only because it is required. Bose is a company with a fifty year history, and some incredibly brilliant people. The culture at Bose is changing very fast right now under the leadership of a new CEO. What it will be in the future is any one's guess.
incredible pressure to complete products in short time freames
Sales Manager - US Western (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – May 10, 2018
Company going through changes. Shedding jobs in US. Moving manufacturing overseas and focusing their growth in international markets. Bose not so popular as a brand with younger demographic. Hear this often, "Bose, great brand, my dad likes Bose" Usually sell Bose to 50 and older crowd. Company is challenged to sell to a whole new generation of consumers.
Field Sales (Former Employee) – Framingham, MA – May 10, 2018
After Dr. Bose passing, Bose Corp. has rapidly moved away from the past, including laying off thousands of their employees and closing their own US based manufacturing in favor of outsourcing a majority of their work to overseas locations. Company felt it needed to change direction to be competitive with Apple Beats, Sonos, and all the other brands millennial demographic choose to buy. The competitive players in the CE industry has eclipsed Bose.
Statistical Engineer (Former Employee) – Framingham, MA – May 3, 2018
I loved the culture here. atleast in the engineering departments. tough to make tons of progress in the company because no one really wants to leave the company, but this is a better problem to have than not
General Manager (Former Employee) – Woodbridge, VA – May 1, 2018
I enjoyed my career with Bose Corporation!
Innovation, continuity and a caring support system, would be the way I'd describe my experience with Bose.
If you work hard and celebrate hard, you will go far in this company. There is always innovation every year, and the brand itself is an easy sell for most people that come in to visit.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with turnover. While we paid decently and had a good bonus structure, other stores in the mall would pay talent outside our max pay, which left some of our best people no choice but to leave.
Promotions while available, were also hard to come by after the GM level, since most of the managers in DM and Corp roles had been with the company for over 10 years. (Continuity)
I still work seasonally for the company because I enjoyed the atmosphere and the way the company takes care of it's people, to include the customers.
