    Pros

    + stable company + good work conditions + good image

    Cons

    - relation oriented when it comes to management. In the core deviation (Geomatics) 90% of the management are Austrian (literally they live on the other side of the boarder). They support each other and cover their back. - politics - very bureaucratic - no career development (even for Swiss people is very difficult to grow, for other foreigners no discussion) - very very conservative (replicates the same functionality of the past products in the new products). - no room for ideas (everything is decided by a group of manger in closed rooms) - on the devices they have very old software technologies - the code base is very very old and in a bad shape (in some areas the software is more than 20 years old) - avoid the embedded software group is the worst (it develops the software for GPS receivers, TPS and field controllers) - fake involvement just to show off to the HR - most of the manager have no people management skills

    I worked at Leica Geosystems

    Pros

    Lots holidays for your own hobbies. Friendly and international community. Always have a chance to learn. Centre of Europe, can visit other countries very easily.

    Cons

    Nothing much to do near the company. All small villages around here. Nearest bigger town is 30 minute away. Can't really join international seminars. You have to learn German or even swiss German to have good relationships with the locals. Otherwise, all your friends are others like you.
