    Pros

    My colleagues are all have good technical expertise and experience.
    There is a steady stream of new projects with interesting technical challenges.

    Cons

    After 18+ months the new C level management is still trying to understand the nature of the contract services business.
    The new leadership is still trying to determine what behaviors are valued from it' s technical employees.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a business strategy and stick with it for longer than 4 months. Minor tweaks are to be expected but stop adding new departments every 4-6 months and/or consolidating others that may be less than 4 months old because the business strategy has changed.
    Figure out what the corporate "Core Values" are and focus on them.
    Figure out what the Org chart should look like and make that visible to the employees.

    Pros

    Good pay and flexible hours

    Cons

    Lots of micro managing and very hostile environment to work in. Poor managment team and lots of favoritism for those who enforces a hostile environment. Would not recommend anyone to work for this place.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your management team and leads. Time to find real people who actually works and stop pushing out those who actually works.

    Pros

    Produces many exciting products for some great companies.

    Cons

    Spinning the slot machine every couple of months hoping for the best outcome. The CEO is not engaged with the employees. They have restructured multiple times in the past few years laying off over 60+ people. Cut throat, unprofessional Sr. Management team that is too occupied worrying about their own positions. Very top heavy organization.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the CEO and several of the VP's.

    Pros

    Had promise as a clean energy startup. Technology is neither clean, nor viable.

    Cons

    Absolutely terrible company. Dangerous place to work. Little regard for proper engineering or safety.

    A decent company with much potential for growth, but no without problems.

    Pros

    The management at Logic is very friendly and personable. They will generally leave you to do your job and seldom micromanage, but they can and will direct projects as needed to meet project deadlines. The work force is very diverse, almost like working in Silicon Valley with many workers coming from overseas, mainly Asia. The management does not pretend to know everything, and they regularly review suggestions from employees on ways to increase productivity. You can be unofficially promoted to a job of higher responsibility, but don't expect to see it on your paycheck or job title. The company does provide a 401k package and medical insurance benefits, but not many perks beyond that.

    Cons

    One of the downsides of working for Logic is the relatively low pay compared to similar employers and the working hours. For the 1st shift you are expected to report to work at 5:30 in the morning and work until 3:00 p.m or later. While the long hours are acceptable, the early times to rise can really wear you down after awhile. In addition to that, the work is unsteady. Some days you have mountains of work and on others just a trickle. Besides the need to balance and coordinate your workload, you are expected to document all your projects and their times for each typical day. It is a hassle on the days when you have multiple projects are they all due, just one more thing.

    Advice to Management

    Management should provide more visibility into their decision making process. Sometimes decisions come down that don't really make sense. Such as requiring all employees on the factory floor to wear safety glasses, when many jobs on the floor don't need them since they are in no way dangerous.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on leading edge technology and interesting projects without getting stale by doing the same thing over and over again.
    Very good culture and people who take work/life balance very seriously and make the work environment fun and invigorating.

    Cons

    A few global product strategies that have backfired eating into earnings.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the strengths (SOM, Services) and stop trying to make the company something it isn't able to succeed in.
