    Cons

    Management can be a challenge and there is the old boys club. Some of the equipment is outdated. Wish we could have flex time.

    Pros

    Fun place to work, great people, great culture and good management team. Lenovo has the great product that is easy to sell, especially when you have the product knowledge, which is user friendly to learn.

    Cons

    Too much corporate politics. You start as a CTG employee (temp agency) and good luck getting converted to FTE. You need to have the right connection to move up.

    I worked at Lenovo full-time

    Pros

    Good people and great technologies. Cross pollination between client device and data center encourages but wasn't executed well at the time I left.

    Cons

    Looming perception of a Chinese Company was often in the back of the clients mind. Its not an issue however.

    I worked at Lenovo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I had good 5 years of employment with this company during which I learned a lot of new tools and technologies. I started as a consultant there, but been proposed to convert to a full time because of my significant contributions to the project. I met there some extremely talented people, who now mostly moved to CA, WA or TX to work for Google, Facebook, Apple or Amazon. It was great to use some new Google technologies before they were advertised for other Google clients (Motorola was a Google company at that time).

    Cons

    Very shaky and unstable situation with the company revenues. Constant layoffs. Managers are a protected class while employees have to suffer for bad management decisions. Not AGILE environment (by the time when I left at least).
    Life/Work balance is not great, a lot of overtimes and very little or no recognition for achievements. Upper management changes sometimes meant 180 degrees turns in product development decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Bad management decisions should not lead to massive "punishment" of employees.
    This decreases the morale and creates bad accountability situation.
