    Pros

    Good Corporate Culture. The teams know how to work hard yet really have fun at the same time. The team works hard to make sure everything with the Logitech brand is meeting and exceeding the standards that a premium brand should have. Most corporate structures are really supportive of the product development process rather than being sales centric.

    Cons

    Too much focus on lower margins has made design work routine. Much of this work is being sent to ODMs that slap on the Logitech sticker on their work with US and European engineering teams focused maintaining quality rather then putting energy into innovation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really need to work on the overall corporate vision. Return to focusing on creating products that generate memorable positive user experiences. Need to create products differentiate themselves not only by high quality but also by cutting edge innovation. They also need to realize they are no longer just in the peripherals market anymore. Things like wireless speakers, cloud cameras, digital music players are complex systems in need of platform engineering.

    I worked at Logitech as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    They have a really solid Internship program, you get to do some fun trips on urban hikes and baseball games, as well as some volunteer work. Though it appears as though they had only recently ramped up the internship program, it was by far the best internship experience I've had, even without the employee discount I had while I was there.

    Cons

    Sometimes the bureaucracy can be a little stifling. Getting a plane ticket home, for example, meant talking to 3 different people explaining to them my situation and what to do. Team sizes were small, and I prefer larger teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perks were great, compensation and time-off policies were fine.

    Pros

    Great company with a number of cool products. Working environment is open and people are friendly. You can have a great discount in garage sale and employee discount.

    Cons

    Although the CEO is trying to drive this company to move fast and to be innovative so hard, the culture there doesn't really reflect that.

    I have been working at Logitech as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly all around, there are no cubicles because it is an open environment, and there are awesome employee discounts!

    Cons

    Employee discounts are so crazy, you end up buying so many things to the point where you might hoard...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The internship was great, but oftentimes the dangling of a full time position offer drove the interns into paranoia. Personally, I feel that they should never be told that they are going to receive a full time position unless it is their last 2 weeks on the contract.

    - great people, helpful, nice, open minded
    - great salary for contractors
    - great experience with real responsibilities

    please consider:
    - adding more benefits to part time employees
    - including free catering services
    - improving the quality of food
    - value part time employees and considering hire them as full time than keep extending the contract

    Great place to work

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

    Pros

    Good process for developing and launching products. Strong support for product development. Office culture is generally good. Strong existing brand value. Working here is worth showing off to friends/family. Excellent support infrastructure. High degree of flexibility in work schedule. Good benefits package and competitive compensation.

    Cons

    Culture may vary widely between business groups, depending on group management. Structure and resources for product follow-up beyond launch is weak. Development and sales process geared towards product volume, sometimes at the expense of brand development. Over-focus on physical, boxed, on-shelf product--software or online connected experience often not sufficiently considered or developed.
