The company has gone from bad to worse and most of the people I liked that made this place bearable are now gone. I'll have to stick it out until I can find a new job, but as soon as I do I'm out of here. At my age it won't be easy, but I believe... — read more

I left Bose last year and while I know this is scary for a lot of people I couldn’t be happier with my new role and company. I’m with a much larger company that doesn’t go through seasonal layoffs like Bose. Very safe. I wanted to add some... — read more
