I understand that there is fear and a lot of dilemmas, but maybe now is a good period of time to leave the company. I did exactly that at the beginning of the year and I’m already a couple of months into a new job. Why do so many obviously unhappy people choose to stay at this company even though there are better opportunities out there?

The job market is good. Unemployment is at 3.5% right now. It’s best to look for a more financially viable company. It’s hard to leave and we all know that. Getting the resume updated, updating LinkedIn, studying for interviews is not what someone wants to do. But stop being lazy/comfortable and just do it!
If you are a competent person with good education, you will get a pay raise and better benefits somewhere else.
Agree on all fronts. I don’t care how smart some employees might be….if you’re sticking it out at Bose right now, you’re D-MB.
Also, previous post is wrong. Unemployment is currently sitting at pre pandemic lows right now. Waaaay less than 25%. Google.
Hmmm ... unemployment is actually a lot less than that.
Job market is not hot. Unemployment is upwards of 25% and white collar employees know instinctively that if they get fired they won’t be getting a new job anytime soon.
I'll be accepting a position externally and leaving Bose this week. There's a certain sense of false security of a cushy job at Bose. However, the writing is clearly on the wall for the end of the company. The roadmap doesn't point to products getting better and the competition is eating our cake. Also, salaries and benefits are much better elsewhere.
