Thread regarding Bose layoffs

Forced back to the office, time to join the "great resignation"

Yet again, Bose is out of step with the times, industry, and competitive reality, and those employees that brought it through the last 2 years.

It's a booming hiring market out there, moving on.

Bose was once known for making speakers for people who like to listen to music. Now, Bose is advertising hearing aids. Bose has "retired" from speakers and music, which is an indication continuing decline in the future. As the talent leaves, the incompetent remain. Better jobs are available for those with talent. The rest can manage the final wrap-up and shuttering.

Unfortunately for Bose, the last 6 to 7 years of negative treatment and negative consideration of thousands of loyal employees are washing over the almost 60 years of its rich history. Some of us feel like big fools buying into the "we're family" until "it's only business, goodbye". Many of those earlier in their careers are not blind to this and are bypassing Bose. Many mid-career have exited Bose on their own terms. While a private company and not making the headlines much, this narrative on Bose is clearly out and I personally have seen it as a deciding factor for someone not choosing Bose, multiple times.

Echoing many of the grass is greener themes shared, especially the observation regarding the much greater diversity, in all dimensions, at many other companies.
Exactly my after Bose experience, leading to more nimble, effective, and insightful solutions and more rapid progress as compared to my experience at Bose.

Yes, I left on my own and I feel so energized and optimistic. My new company is full of growth opportunities, talented people with interesting backgrounds, true DEI culture, etc. It holds people much more accountable. No old white boys club. I was not at Bose my whole career so perhaps it was easier for me to leave.

I, like many other ex-Bose colleagues, am gone now. The fresh air and work flexibility of my new company is so refreshing. Significant increase in compensation, ability to grow and collaborate beyond what Bose ever offered. The financial transparency is incredibly refreshing, as well as leadership regular updates and connecting our contributions and rewards directly to the dollars and cents of company performance.

Thousands of ex-Bose colleagues are at other companies now and thriving. Reach out, learn and get excited about the many alternatives. Grab hold of a new and refreshed career path.

Time to leave. The only thing that’s been consistent with Bose over the years is the bleak outlook and layoffs. There is so much opportunity out there right now at fantastic companies with better pay.

It's not just that! In my opinion, it's behind in almost every area by at least a decade, and the chances of a turnaround are so slim. I just don't believe it has what it takes to recover from its poor management and poor decisions. I think this is a company that is so distressed that it does not care who leaves at this point. I think it is going to be left with the weaker talent people who have been there for years, new worker bee employees who don't know what the reality is, and then more senior people who come in to try to fix things who are given high comp to come given the risk.
