    I worked at Lenovo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good focus on sales execution, clear value proposition and great products for the corporate market. Good branding and very loyal staff. A good culture of teamwork.

    Cons

    Not much work life balance, uncompetitive priced products and constantly wants more with less. Not enough product innovation and too slow to launch new products for SMEs and Consumers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more on marketing to build brand awareness and getting innovative products to market earlier. Attack the consumer market much more aggressively with a wider product portfolio.

    Pros

    You can get flexibility by working from home and great breakfast every week

    Cons

    There is no business direction. Performance review setup is a joke but at least you can get 100% everytime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No clue as to how to achieve better sells

    Great product, but the rest of the business needs work to command the same level of respect.

    I worked at Lenovo

    Pros

    Lenovo builds high quality PC's that are better built and designed than the competition.

    Cons

    As an organisation, Lenovo is very good at moving goal posts rapidly to the benefit of the organisation and detriment of the employees.

    The organisation is continuosly looking at ways of lowering expenses to the point where the good employees capable of working elsewhere leave and those who remain aren't as good and are over worked. Even worse is when they are off shored and as an employee you have to over come time zones, language barriers and cultural differences to complete a simple task, this may be a finance task, operations task, HR task or accounts receivable task.

    Lenovo has been working to improve several key elements of the business, but after the 3 years since splitting from IBM are yet to materialise. Areas of improvement such as online ETA's, online ordering, CTO etc are all still way off but have been in the pipeline for years.

    The organisation also suffers from having a lack of accountability in many areas, accessing useful meaningful data is nigh on impossible and there is a lack of people that know how to get things done and that the processes these people know about are not documented anywhere for reference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say that there needs to be stronger operational responsibility. There is too much responsibility on sales people for non sales activity and no ownership amongst operations to deliver the information to the sales team.
