    Awesome

    Technical Lead (Former Employee) Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    ProsFair salary, excellent corporate culture, awesome team

    ConsIt's a pity they closed Canadian site...

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake your technical guys' opinion more seriously... Do not put all eggs in one basket - trying to jump into Google TV thing almost bankrupted the company, while ALL technical leads warned against betting on it that hard. The CEO of those days is gone anyway....

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    ProsIt's a paycheque
    Good benefits
    Great people (Logitech doesn't know how lucky they are)

    Cons-A lot of talk about how Logitech values employees is just that -talk. Promotions or rewards for hard work are few and far between, and there is little or no career development or training (except the occasional token gesture)
    -Political environment, often incompetent people promoted over competent. (As long as you work long hours you will get recognized regardless of output)
    -Moral is low in Mississauga office, people disappearing constantly (by choice or not) and head count is not replaced

    -If you are looking for a long term career move don't come here unless you are planning to move to India soon.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure your words and actions line up (because they don't, and your employees know it)
    Stop treating your employees like children and be straight up with them.

    After a tough restructuring followed by two years of hard work employees need a little bit more than a free dish of ice cream at a townhall meeting to thank them for their dedication.

    Thinking to join Logitech - better think twice. It is all about the $, not about you.

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    ProsBonus is paid quarterly.
    Good discount for Logitech products.

    ConsScrum/Agile means justified chaos, lack of vision, and 2 weeks deadline.
    Unpaid overtime required on a regular basis.
    Management is selected based on words, not achievements.
    The deadlines are unrealistic.
    The rank and file contributor is bullied on a daily basis.
    Too much effort is required to get things done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should be about providing vision, care for your employees, and getting things done. In your place is about politics, control, and Agile dogma.
    Participating in a Townhall in Logitech is a sad experience. There is nothing about employees. It is almost like you talk with your stockholders.
    Create a culture or you will dissapear.
    You shouldn't make mass layoff when you have double digit growth.
    Your oursourcing effort to India, shows why lowering taxes to big corporations doesn't mean they will create jobs.

    Great place to work but very chaotic and fast paced, some very immature employees

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    ProsManagement shows appreciation through paid lunches, team outtings, off-site meetings. Great profit sharing plan in this very profitable and growing company.

    ConsSome very immature and arrogant employees who need to grow-up.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDeal with the immature employees.
    Be open to new ideas for products and services rather than being dismissive.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    ProsPeople are friendly. Very nice colleagues to work with.

    ConsCompany has infrastructure changes since 2009. Positions have been transferred to India to save $$$. Many people were cut off recently. Overtime is usual.

    Talk too much, do too less

    Engineering Development (Current Employee) Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    Pros- Very good products with talent smart patent
    - Do what you can do . A lot of meetings is kind of relaxing time

    Cons-Do more or less , doesn't matter due to most of managers are not knowledgeable what they are doing /talking. Working culture is encouraging - " SPEAKING MORE, DOING NOTHING , THEN GETTING PROMOTION "

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the bum managers. Keep the talent engineering resources. promote real R&D value. improve productivity /effectiveness.

    Respect professionals

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    ProsIt's a globally recognized company. You feel yourself a part of a big team. The company has gathered many great professionals and just great individuals, who create a friendly working environment. The company provides in most cases a fair balance between work and private life of people, though stressful situations and pushing from top down occurs quite often as well.

    ConsLack of technical leadership. The top management does not respect the feedback from the engineers. The product development roadmaps are built with no serious analysis of technical and ecomomical factors. A good help would be a detailed analysis of the competitors' products. The analysis should include the choice of technologies, general architecture, set of features, model lines, etc.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the professionals, work as a team, not as a commander and a batallion of soldiers.
