Some cool products. Just an 'ok' place to work for the bay area. Work/life balance depends on which BU you're in.

Program Manager (Current Employee)
Newark, CA

I have been working at Logitech full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood products, generally keeping ahead of the market in most business units (but only just)
Trying to do agile
Now in a new building in Newark which is night and day better than the old place
Reasonable perks - gym, discount on products, free coffee etc..

ConsMismanagement in recent years, layoffs, senior turnover, uncertainty. New CEO has good fundamentals but doesn't get the tech industry.
Risk averse management, especially with software investments (admittedly badly burned by the Google TV product).
Very little long term product vision.
Way too much done in India, higher risk and less control.
Weak engineering management resulting in outdated software and infrastructure.
Ridiculous hours asked of employees in working with India offices. Constant 20 x 7 fire drills
Useless HR department and terrible medical options (Cigna have the doctors no other providers want)

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove core software engineering and product management practices that enable India to function more autonomously.
Look at getting revenue from software services as well as hardware, particularly in Digital Home and Music BUs otherwise the company will slowly die.
