What was once a vibrant workplace became a little depressing. Every week, there is someone leaving the company. LinkedIn has been all about good-byes. Is it time to say goodbye?

Left Bose earlier this year for a better career, work environment and of course good pay!
Currently one thing thats left with the company is its name, really sad to see company’s such downfall
I’m still cheering up for Bose and hope the company gets back onto track soon 🙏🏻
A "little depressing"? Try a lot depressing - every single day in my organization and surrounding. I could not take it any longer! Left for a much better upbeat environment, a dramatically refreshed career path, enjoying colleagues and contributing again, and yes, dramatically increased compensation. Signed - a 10-year, now ex-Bose.
I would unless you have a lot of years and want severance package. I highly suggest looking for a job now
To survive, Bose needs a Steve Jobs at Apple level turn-around. The culture has become rotten (the people are nice, but lacking in passion and vision), the products are not innovative (too much product-by-spreadsheet) and the company is dying.
Is Lila the Steve Jobs for Bose, and restoring order and passion to Bose? Or is Lila the Marissa Mayer (of Yahoo) for Bose, stewarding the ship until the pieces can be sold off?
If you think the former, you should use your skills and passion to meaningfully impact Bose. Speak up, don't be afraid to go off-script, challenge assumptions on "this is the way Bose has always done it" and great things can happen.
If you think the latter, you should decide whether you want to walk out the door or be pushed out of it.
Yes...If you have skills and you're not close to retirement, get out as fast as you can
