Bose Layoffs

Topics regarding layoffs at Bose

Its a shame

Just heard from a former co-worker who has a relative still working at Mass. Our old department is completely gone from management down. I joined in 1995 and have watched what was once a great company slowly dissolve. Sadly the glory days are... —  read more 

Now come the reorgs

Rumors of reorgs, guess it’s to be expected after so many teams were left decimated. Meetings are already being scheduled for next week. I am bracing for the next shoe to fall. What a way to live!

Excellent advice

Get your resume and skill set in order. I'm a software engineer with 30+ years behind me, and I always was working on cutting edge/current technologies - but still 30 years from college meant a lot of my algorithms - 'computer science' knowledge was... —  read more 

Is anybody safe?

A coworker is annoyingly unaffected by the news of coming layoffs because he's certain he is safe. He thinks because he's been with the company for about two decades there is nobody who can do his job better and in his mind that makes him... —  read more 

Glad I'm gone

I got let go 2 years ago after 25 years with the company. I was told my position was "no longer needed" even though they wound up hiring two people to do my job. I had great reviews, never had a single incident involving HR and no blemishes on my... —  read more

Bizarre ending of a career

This is going to be a strange and startling ending to a career. Most left the office to work from home in a hurry, leaving behind personal belongings and much more. How will we have closure, it’s hard to fathom. The Bose culture and pride had been a... —  read more 

More Layoffs End of June

I am p-ss-d off. Why tell us there are layoffs coming in the next few weeks without saying when or who? We are going to be stressed out and demotivated to work. So f—ing stupid. Just don't say anything at all until it happens.

2020 layoffs

Following the announcement to close all global retail stores a round of layoffs happened in January. But these were hardly related to retail. Likely this was another round that each department had to cut staff by x-percent without any vision or... —  read more 

Too much politics at Bose

Bose has stopped developing wifi speakers (Soundtouch and smart Home speaker). Its market share of wifi speaker is very small because it is too expensive. It cannot compete with Google or Amazon or Sonos. Lots of engineers will either switch to... —  read more 

Layoffs Coming - GDE Reductions

Layoffs coming soon in early 2019. No specifics yet, but everyone in GDE has been "suggested" to look for work elsewhere in the company, which points to a massive reduction if not total elimination of that department.
