  5. "Very unpleasant environment, happy not to be part of it any longer."

    I worked at Leica Geosystems

    Pros

    Some good, passionate people, strong brand, quality equipment. Depending on what part of the business you work in there must be pros that I didn't experience.

    Cons

    Sole value is profit, refusal to acknowledge market realities, maintain status quo, CYA. Too much arrogance and self-preservation preventing change.

    I have been working at Leica Geosystems

    Pros

    Flexible working and that's about it.

    Cons

    No company benefits, poor salary, poor salary review (below inflation), no growth potential, poor management and ready to change the rules as they like.

    Advice to Management

    Support your staff, pay them properly and lead.

    I worked at Leica Geosystems for more than a year

    Pros

    The company has still a good name, and could be a nice springboard to a better job. Great colleagues. Good work life balance, with completely flexible working time.

    Cons

    Agile development - Applied in the worst possible way to transform developers into mindless bit shifting clones. No career possible, unless you're swiss or austrian. Nightmarish software structure - Lots of talk on quality, patterns, architecture, agility, but at the end the software structure looks like what a kid on a sugar high would draw. Don't expect gratitude or even acknowledgement - A couple of good ideas I proposed to the management got implemented by full time teams (we're talking about around 10 people working full time) and I didn't even get a thank you. High burn out risk - The best people either leave in time, or burn out and are fired.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the middle management. It looks every day less like an engineering team, and more like a bunch of good ole boys.

    I worked at Leica Geosystems

    Pros

    Leica Geosystems has a great reputation in the market, and they develop and produce first class products. Most of the people are great colleagues and in general the working conditions are good. The compensation is fair.

    Cons

    The employee fluctuation has increased over the past years, i.e. knowledge that is important to be the big player in this business has also disappeared. Many positions have not been reoccupied. There is a great gap between top management and employees. The outstanding company culture and values of the company do not exist anymore. No strategy, no clear communication, no structure lead to unmotivated work-to-rule. It seems that the company is increasingly influenced by people who have no knowledge about the business and the only thing that rules is shareholder value.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Leica Geosystems

    Pros

    Lots of learning opportunities for newly joined. However, no structural approach on training. Colleagues are generally nice. However, it depends on the sides you are in.

    Cons

    A company full of politics at different levels, from engineers to higher management. Even when ones are not involved, politics will find you. Lots of apple polisher. Management practise strongly on favouritism.

    Advice to Management

    The company has gone from bad to worst. It is time for the top management to open their eye instead of their ears. A lots of people who really works are leaving. Knowledge are draining
