    Bully management getting in the way of new product development

    Pros

    Company has some excellent people with great ideas. New products, especially those in the new mobility area show great promise.

    Cons

    However certain product groups neglect their primary focus of developing quality products within cost parameters and instead reach to other departments where they have no expertise and run havoc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some backbone and get rid of power hungry product development heads and show the rest of the company that company performance comes ahead of personalities.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Some really good people, both personally and professionally. Makes interesting products. Decent salary.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance isn't great. Not as much of a meritocracy as it claims. Site management can be indecisive.

    Pros

    Work environment, benefits, collaborative atmosphere from a global perspective.

    Cons

    HQ/Western Region relationship has historically been contentious, adversarial.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be quicker to recognize the writing on the wall about dying categories. Focus less on churning out new iterations of mice/keyboards and more on game-changing mobile/audio products/services. Already starting to see moves in the right direction (finally got rid of Quindlen), but probably a bit too late.

    Pros

    Great company culture and overall environment. Got lots of opportunities to suggest and pursue projects, management is very flexible and progressive.

    Cons

    Less aggressive in terms of business drive, need to onboard and attract smarter talent for pushing the limits even further. Salary should be somewhat higher than presently offerred.

    Decent Company, Poor Managment

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Fremont, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fremont, CA

    Pros

    Pays well, relaxed company culture knows how to have fun, good amount of time off. Logitech excels in its core categories (mice, keyboards), it is just a shame that poor management is keeping it from truly innovating in other areas.

    Cons

    Management is slow to make decisions which negatively impacts business. The company has made some bad bets and under-funded and promoted certain categories which it is now trying to sell off. Not sure how much longer the company can rely on selling mice and keyboards when we are now living in a touchscreen world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your working level people to make more decisions and react to changes in the market faster.

    Great products but company is mired in politics

    Pros

    Logitech has some of the most exciting computer peripheral products. The degree to which product quality is validated is worthy of mentioning. Company feels like a mini United Nations in many ways and has a very unique model of internal and outsourced production.

    Cons

    This is a classic case of finding own worst enemy in themselves. The internal politics and regional (Europe vs US vs Asia) clashes took down what could have been a great company. Very unfortunate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are some great minds in engineering and marketing but unless the silo mentality and internal politics can be resolved, Logitech will not be able to rise to the challenge of a diminishing market.

    Pros

    Great health benefits and lots of flexibility for a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Logitech is not sure what they want to be now that momentum has shifted to mobile and tablet use more so than PC. The bread and butter that was mice and keyboards is evaporating and Logitech cast a broad net over many opportunities, but spread itself too thin to really invest in growth areas. New CEO is attempting to turn the behemoth of a company (which is not appropriate for it's actual size) around.

    Lots of red tape, lots and lots of beaurocracy and no accountability.

    All in all, Logitech is VERY old school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drive accountability down through the organization and better develop your talent.

    Pros

    Lots of freedom, plenty of spare time, work life balance is decent, colleagues are nice. bring your own phone and flexible desktop support.

    Cons

    Lack of focus from the management, total lack of vision on future of computing industries in general, and price points way out of sync with the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some fresh blood in sales and marketing and stop blaming every other department for the failures.
