I worked at Logitech full-time (More than 3 years)

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 Management

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.

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

    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 Management

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

    I have been working at Logitech full-time (More than 5 years)

    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 Management

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