    I have been working at Belkin full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Awesome facilities, pays well to cover its problems. The bonus program is generous and management will adjust salary if you complain

    Cons

    Awful corporate culture, those with most influence and power will force others into doing what they want, even if it's unethical or inappropriate. There is no career development programs and employees are viewed as machines, your personal time is not respected, neither are your sanity or personal life.
    Most of the management team is lacking experience, or just outright incompetent, and will blame you for faults.
    Management is not held accountable.
    The company cannot attract candidates from top companies or schools, talent is mediocre at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Former Employee - Product Development Manager in Compton, CA

    I worked at Belkin full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice break room, on-site gym, parking

    Cons

    Extremely incompetent management driven by politics and fear. Don't believe me, search Linkedin for Belkin and you'll find hundreds of Ex-Belkin employees with less than a year on their work profile. Their current product line is a sad testament to how many tech firms miss the boat. Belkin use to be king Cables and Power Products, but instead of focusing on the new craze in personal computing (Cloud, Smartphones) they focused primarily on carrying cases and cleaning kits. Not exactly a long-term growth strategy. Now their product lines are mere after-thought.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management doesn't take advice, particularly from employees who left for greener pastures. This is more of an advice to prospective employees: You can find something better out there.
