    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 place to work

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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.

    Pros

    - great people, helpful, nice, open minded
    - great salary for contractors
    - great experience with real responsibilities
    - have a wide range of work
    - company values is getting more and more innovative

    Cons

    - took forever to get the hiring process done (3 months after the first interview)
    - decided to extend the contract instead of hiring as a full time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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

    I worked at Logitech as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good innovative creative technology and marketing teams, exciting products. Good work life balance environment. Lots of changes during recess time for the company, but still one of my favorite places I worked. Great team collaboration.

    Cons

    I know people were critical of management changes, and certainly they went through a rough time. I hope for the best since those changes a few years back, would return to work for them in a heartbeat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can't speak to current management, since I was last there in 2009. Moved out of state.

    Pros

    Small company culture, nice people.

    Senior management should care about their employees more. People have been asked to work overtime and weekends. No flexibility to work from home.

    I worked at Logitech as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work for marketing folks. Strong brand ID and resilient marketing organization. They treat their product packaging like art and the creation process works. Lots of smart and loyal people work at this company. They let people jump around into new jobs which is good for personal growth of better performers.

    Cons

    No answer for touch technology which is a threat to the legacy peripheral business. Poor business planning as they run a very high percentage of contract workforce via 3rd party's. Furthermore contractors are treated as second class citizens. Hence a very hostile and disrespectful work atmosphere. Product planning comes down to which new commodity gadgets coming out of CES that they can slap their logo on and go to market in 90 days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The follower strategy of slapping logos on ODM designs is not going to grow this company. Acquire an agile company with some intellectual property that is scalable. Strive to be the leader at CES not the follower.

    I have been working at Logitech full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing products ... the products are getting so much cooler, better designed, and smarter

    Lots of change in culture ... almost all for the better

    Fast, cool, fun ... open office, very casual but high intensity at same time

    This is the most underestimated company in silicon valley

    Cons

    The open office needs to be 'designed' but i hear that's coming

    Besides that, there just aren't any real negatives to speak of ...

    I worked at Logitech full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Learnt a lot in the field of accounting.

    Cons

    The work life balance is thing that seizes to exist in this company. They would request us to work during the weekend even though it was not of any urgency. We were not allowed to work from home (weekday/weekends included). The work culture in that team is that all the work needed to be done in the physical location and hence people left pretty much everyday after 8 p.m. The manager is highly inefficient in doing his job. He continues to give all the other teams, the time and freedom to continue booking journal entries but only crunch his own team to work harder without having any realistic sense of how things can take time. In fact, the CEO had announced that he wants to be connected only with his current employees but not through LinkedIn, they should reach out to him by email/phone call. Because they are no longer worthy of his time. This is a company, where one can learn on how not to be a bad manager/company and learn to respect its employees to say that it is perfectly fine for them to have a work-life balance. Do not join this team, if you have an health condition that needs a doctor's appointment even once a month. They have clearly stated that it disrupts the work and will consider you to be an efficient employee. I'm glad I no longer belong to this team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to respect your employees and create a work-life balance so that I can contribute more.
