    I have been working at Leica Geosystems full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It might depend on business area and management culture, but to me Leica offers empowering and trust culture, in particular in smaller divisions which have more of a start-up culture. If you have a good business idea and you pitch it to your manager, you most likely will be empowered to test and implement it. You get full responsibility to drive projects and initiatives. Product management is fun at this company as you are in the centre of Swiss innovation and exposed to global markets. Supportive and friendly culture make it a great working environment.

    Cons

    Overtime work is a common practice.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Leica Geosystems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Bonus is great with AWS and also 2 incentive bonus in March and September. The block leave and the days of annual leave is good too and you don’t have to find a reason to take leave for a long Christmas or Chinese New Year as the company is shut down for these 2 periods.

    Cons

    Playing politics is common and whilst the old batch battles the new management, you can’t stay if you do not wish to pick a side.
