    I worked at Bose full-time

    Pros

    Very good pay and monthly bonus (If you do well in sales) Great staff discount Easy to sell product (for the most part)

    Cons

    Inability to work autonomously as per upper managements style of doing things. Despite the company fostering a culture of giving feedback, said feedback falls on deaf ears if it conflicts with the agenda of Upper Management. Used to be much better before the "global realignment" Limited progression opportunities Very fast turnover of staff in many stores

    Entire department was let go without notice. Customer satisfaction has since dropped which reflects poorly on the company. Poor communication from management.
