Good company, but too much bureaucracy and petty politics

Pros

Good benefits, fairly good perks, cool products to play with, a great work/life balance and lots of fun - the Hallowe'en festivities at Logitech are among the best I've ever seen. The current CEO, Guerrino De Luca, came out of retirement to help out the company and he is very good.

Cons

Salaries are on the low side. Way too much inter-departmental politics and clique-building. Management doesn't seem to have much of a direction (though with Guerrino's return, that problem will probably lessen) and there are too many middle managers. There is also too much nepotism.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cut middle management by at least fifty percent. Get rid of some of the too-numerous product lines. Are you a business accessories company or are you trying to compete with Sony/Samsung/Panasonic/etc? Consolidate and figure out what kind of company you want to be and what kinds of products you're trying to sell.

    A company in search of stability

    Pros

    good benefits, work/life balance, everyone is courteous

    Cons

    It is a culture of passive aggressive back-stabbing, executives who are out of touch with markets and their own company and not willing to learn. It has been milking the mouse for a very long time, and doesn't have an innovation engine to discover new ideas and get them to market in a timely fashion. The cycle of bloating with bureaucracy and then layoff is unsustainable. It drives people to safe roles, safe initiatives, and risk aversion.

    Pros

    Product Development process is well documented online.

    Cons

    Need to get back to namebrand identity with less workers from tough downsizing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't cut the critical job functions because the gaps will be wider, and more people will be de-motivated and feel lost.
