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

    Pros

    If you truly excel at your job and have the right manager, the year end bonus is fantastic. They are huge on employee health so if you're a gym-nut this is the place to work. They have a state of the art facility, trainers and programs.

    Cons

    No work/life balance plan on taking your laptop home for a 6-7 day work week. Many processes need to be revamped but communication across teams and departments is severely lacking.

    Advice to Management

    If it can't be done in 5 days, fix the process

    Pros

    Medical insurance is good. Salary level is ok. But no match salary (to local market level) policy when employees are relocated.

    Cons

    No match salary (to local market level) policy when employees are relocated.
    Bonus is low. Nearly no salary increase.

    Advice to Management

    Need clear career path shown to employees. Need more incentive to keep high-potential people.
