Thread regarding Bose layoffs

I hate the uncertainty

I can deal with layoffs. They happen. I don't think any company with a sizable workforce can completely escape layoffs. What I can't deal with is the uncertainty that follows. The fear of more to come since we are rarely told anything is omnipresent and it's making concentrating on work much harder. If something pushes me to leave it will be the uncertainty, not the layoffs themselves.

Look at your products, look at your competition. Where do you excel compared to your competitors. Every product Bose makes someone does better. Bose hangs on to products, doesn’t update low hanging fruits (sound link around, qc35 being milked for crazy, wave system) I left Bose in 2020 and the amount of stale products out there are insane. Update and improve products. Incremental improvements are good, sitting on old products is not wise.

" 'the first ever in Bose history' in early 2009" was a corporate myth, as there were definitely significant layoffs in the 1980's.

Rare is the company that does not have layoffs during a downturn or two at some point, agreed. However, Bose since "the first ever in Bose history" in early 2009 has had layoffs and/or sale of business units or facilities (impacting the people) near every year, with the last six years increasing in numbers and frequency. Thousands have shown the door involuntarily. Many more have left on their own. Amidst all talk, talk, talk - no real signs of Bose hitting rock bottom and stopping the insanity. Move along, the fall is not over.
