    I worked at Leica Geosystems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Interesting 3D laser scanning technology. Small software group where you can make an impact.

    Cons

    Lack of local management expertise. Poor communication between departments. Even worse communication from higher up, controlling entities, such as Leica Geo's headquarters in Switzerland, and parent company Hexagon, also in Europe. This leaves non-management people in the dark quite often.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication between departments, and between the Switzerland home office and San Ramon.

    I have been working at Leica Geosystems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Core values for parent company, Hexagon AB, are that it is profit-driven, professional, innovative, engaged, customer-focused, and entrepreneurial. I find that the company really does live out these values. Yes, this means that employees are under a lot of pressure to deliver. But contrast that to a company that does not deliver profits...this means that the future would be in question. Employees are given a lot of room to drive projects without micro-management from above, and this is refreshing. vision-mission

    Cons

    The company is pretty lean, so if you're someone who does not like to be accountable for your results, then it won't be the best place for you. But don't worry... there are plenty of companies where you can go be a zombie, just not here. As a lean organization, there's not a lot of obvious positions above you. You can make your own success with a well-considered idea to drive incremental business, but the onus is largely on you.

    Advice to Management
