    I have been working at Lenovo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lenovo offers an entrepreneurial environment that promotes free thinking and exploring new ways to get the job done. Leadership supports new ideas and finding new ways to compete. We have a culture of making big goals and fulfilling our commitments.

    Cons

    At Lenovo, it sometimes takes extra work and working in a global company can mean hours that are not traditional. Although Lenovo is a fast and dynamic work environment, the reward far outways the extra work we need to put in.

    Advice to Management

    Be present with the local leaders and employees. Drive the vision and take the time to make sure that the vision is pushed down to every level.

    I worked at Lenovo (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Flexible hours
    Competitive compensation
    Decent work-life balance
    Talented, skilled co-workers making every effort to achieve company objectives
    Community involvement

    Cons

    Questionable business direction over the past three years
    Compensation impacts due to unprofitable business objectives over the past three years
    Less transparency that fostered concerns and degraded trust in Bonus compensation methodology

    Advice to Management

    Abandon the "Market share at all costs" strategy. Stop chasing deals that are unprofitable for the sake of unit sales...units do not get reported on the financial statement.
    Acknowledge the impact of the "market share" strategy and reward employees who execute it or adjust Bonus goals to account for "market share" results.

    Pros

    Data Center has become it's own business organization and is getting attention it deserves. No longer have to fight for attention from PC organization. Strong leadership in place with history in Data Center and encouraging strategy for making Lenovo a top DC player.

    Lenovo is still PC focused and organized. Data Center Group attention is building and company needs to fight uphill to become a major player.

    Pros

    The employees are awesome, and sacrifice so much of their life. There is so much knowledge in this place, and they back each other.

    Cons

    Long hours, including late nights . Benefits aren't competitive, everyone travels coach for international flights. Fearful work environment. High layoff rate.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you say, look at current hiring trends and adapt. Volatile work environment = poor work. Put employees first. They're closest to the customer.
