    I worked at Logitech as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Medium sized company with a start up atmosphere.
    Management is very approachable.
    Great people.
    Collaborative work environment

    Cons

    Company has great products, but needs to improve marketing efforts. Invest in building a brand around Logitech.
    Pay needs to be higher.

    Advice to Management

    The company has a good strategy for the future, but needs to speed up on implementation. Hike up salaries a bit to retain talent. Piggy back on the UE brand.

    Pros

    This branch of Logitech (in Vancouver WA) deals with audio streaming products and speakers, which was generally fun to test. The people were nice and it was an easy commute from Northeast Portland

    Cons

    Not much in the way of existing test plans or testing tools. Their policy was to not tell contractors when their last day was ----until the last day. Not the best pay-rate I've ever had either. No mention of getting hired full-time

    Pros

    Company has diverse product portfolio. So, there are opportunities to work on a variety of products if desired. The company prides itself on high quality products. So, only high quality work is acceptable. Overall, good balance of work and personal life.

    Cons

    Some of the engineering is in Taiwan and Switzerland with manufacturing in China. Also, a lot of interaction with European sales & marketing is required. So, must be willing to respond to emails and do phone conferences at odd hours of day. This can make for long days.

    Advice to Management

    Keep providing employees with opportunities to express their ideas for new products. Explore more product opportunities in the mobile and smartphone market spaces.

    Pros

    Good Corporate Culture. The teams know how to work hard yet really have fun at the same time. The team works hard to make sure everything with the Logitech brand is meeting and exceeding the standards that a premium brand should have. Most corporate structures are really supportive of the product development process rather than being sales centric.

    Cons

    Too much focus on lower margins has made design work routine. Much of this work is being sent to ODMs that slap on the Logitech sticker on their work with US and European engineering teams focused maintaining quality rather then putting energy into innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Really need to work on the overall corporate vision. Return to focusing on creating products that generate memorable positive user experiences. Need to create products differentiate themselves not only by high quality but also by cutting edge innovation. They also need to realize they are no longer just in the peripherals market anymore. Things like wireless speakers, cloud cameras, digital music players are complex systems in need of platform engineering.

    Pros

    Great company with a number of cool products. Working environment is open and people are friendly. You can have a great discount in garage sale and employee discount.

    Cons

    Although the CEO is trying to drive this company to move fast and to be innovative so hard, the culture there doesn't really reflect that.

    Pros

    Friendly all around, there are no cubicles because it is an open environment, and there are awesome employee discounts!

    Cons

    Employee discounts are so crazy, you end up buying so many things to the point where you might hoard...

    Advice to Management

    The internship was great, but oftentimes the dangling of a full time position offer drove the interns into paranoia. Personally, I feel that they should never be told that they are going to receive a full time position unless it is their last 2 weeks on the contract.

  9. It is a great workplace.

    Pros

    - great people, helpful, nice, open minded
    - great salary for contractors
    - great experience with real responsibilities
    - have a wide range of work
    - company values is getting more and more innovative

    Cons

    - took forever to get the hiring process done (3 months after the first interview)
    - decided to extend the contract instead of hiring as a full time

    Advice to Management

    please consider:
    - adding more benefits to part time employees
    - including free catering services
    - improving the quality of food
    - value part time employees and considering hire them as full time than keep extending the contract

    Pros

    Good process for developing and launching products. Strong support for product development. Office culture is generally good. Strong existing brand value. Working here is worth showing off to friends/family. Excellent support infrastructure. High degree of flexibility in work schedule. Good benefits package and competitive compensation.

    Cons

    Culture may vary widely between business groups, depending on group management. Structure and resources for product follow-up beyond launch is weak. Development and sales process geared towards product volume, sometimes at the expense of brand development. Over-focus on physical, boxed, on-shelf product--software or online connected experience often not sufficiently considered or developed.

    Pros

    Good innovative creative technology and marketing teams, exciting products. Good work life balance environment. Lots of changes during recess time for the company, but still one of my favorite places I worked. Great team collaboration.

    Cons

    I know people were critical of management changes, and certainly they went through a rough time. I hope for the best since those changes a few years back, would return to work for them in a heartbeat.

    Advice to Management

    Can't speak to current management, since I was last there in 2009. Moved out of state.
