    Pros

    - Career opportunities are available to those who truly want to advance with the company - up to the person to set a goal and work towards it.
    - There are a lot of social events and all inclusive lunch and trips that the company provides throughout the year.
    - The company has been on a growth and development path for the past few years and its exciting to be around the creation and change of products and how they are accepted in the market place.
    - The open collaboration space allows you to be involved with all levels of management and other departments. This includes working within earshot of VP and C level executives. Its nice to be able to have a real conversation with them no matter what your position.

    Cons

    - Tough location if you don't live near the city or want to drive in. Parking in the area isn't cheap and meter maids don't skip a beat so don't let your meter expire
    - Most Sales/Support business is conducted over the phone, if your not cut out to be on the phone this might not be the job for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to develop the employees you have. There is a lot of good talent in the company, being able to recognize and develop good talent into great talent can be hindered by lack of communication on a person to person level.

    I worked at LogMeIn full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Free snacks. Fun activities. Cool products.

    Cons

    Leadership that simply can't lead
    Salary is low relative to other players in the area
    If you don't drink the cool-aide you're done for

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

  3. Very good app! (but LiteManager can more)

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Boston, MA

    I have been working at LogMeIn part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great app, very fast and useful, but i need screenrecord like in LiteManager. TV is not free for business use, liteManager Free provide free remote access for 30 PC.

    Cons

    -Inept middle management
    -Invisible customer: huge gap between development and requirement
    -Big differences between teams
    -"Enterprise technologies" - glacial, obsolete, boring technology
    -No perspective, future plans are murky
    -Force fed agile/scrum, "scrum or die" attitude, management drank the scrum kool aid
    -Twisting agile, forecfully bending the process, made up roles

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on employee strengths and exploit those, not coaching on weaknesses.

    Pros

    Great company with tons of opportunity to prove yourself, get noticed and move up. Extremely smart people all around. Managers are willing to help out and get your moving forward in your career path.

    Cons

    Company culture is probably not for everyone. It's important that you can be assertive and move projects forward if you're in marketing or product or they might get bottlenecked due to the number of people trying to push work through.

    Would be great to have a matching 401K.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep challenging people. Work out the kinks on inefficiencies and bottlenecks between the Boston and Budapest offices.

    Left the start-up mentality in the dust

    I have been working at LogMeIn

    Pros

    Nice office
    Free snacks and beverages
    Company trips annually
    Plenty of collaboration space/conference rooms

    Cons

    Teams are silo'd off per floor for the most part.
    South Boston location makes it hard for north shore and north-of-Boston commuters
    Management tends to have tunnel vision, not good for fostering innovation outside R&D teams dedicated to doing that innovation.
    Semi-annual reviews seem to be an after-thought, nothing really happens with them unless there are negative points to "work on".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on employee strengths and exploit those, not coaching on weaknesses.
    Provide more cross-team opportunities to innovate, collaborate, and socialize beyond the obligatory monthly meetings.
    Do a better job on advertising internal career opportunities before soliciting outside recruiting and hiring.

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Boston, MA

    I have been working at LogMeIn full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Perks are great and offices are cool, but that is not going to keep you happy in the long run.
    - The CEO is great but the rest of senior management needs to get it to together.
    - They have a great HR and Corporate Image team.

    Cons

    - Insurance is expensive, no 401k matching.
    - Salaries are sub-par compared to their direct competitors.
    - Executive team is just gunning to make The Street happy quarter after quarter.
    - There is no Engineering leadership in Boston, making all decisions driven by marketing, sales or product (that used to be either part of marketing or sales previously).
    - Revolving door for product and sales teams. Marketing too but at least that has been getting better. Ask me in three months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    MKS needs to revamp his leadership team. We need a new Executive team that will make bold risks and stick to them. We need product teams that understand the engineering behind the product. We need long-term vision instead of having everything decided just to meet our quarterly numbers.

    Current Contractor - User Services Representative in Boston, MA
    Current Contractor - User Services Representative in Boston, MA

    I have been working at LogMeIn as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    If you live for your breaks this is the place to work. Fooseball tables, pool tables, free snacks and soda. Thats about all you will get out of the glamorized call center.

    Cons

    Sitting through the week long training session where you watch them go over their software. This is the most boring process ever. Don't waste your time.

    Pros

    Great people, fun environment, great location just next to South Station

    Cons

    Contract work, never would give straight answers on possibility to work there full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set a guideline to become full time if continuing down road of temp to perm work, will motivate workers better.
