    I worked at Logitech (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A lot of room to design your own career (but you have to do it yourself), benefits from a large company while still keeping a small company culture, freedom in working from home as long as you deliver targets.

    Cons

    High shareholder/stock price focus, sometimes a little conservative in dealing with employees.

    Pros

    We are our best version when we can be open and ourselves, and working for Logitech means that we can be just like that! This “freedom of being” gives us more motivation to create and execute, allows an environment where we can “Incorporate different perspectives & insights to find the best solution” and that's #workinggoals

    Cons

    USA headquarters office location is not at the most central location

    Advice to Management

    very inspired by the leaders we have here!

    Pros

    Good culture, treat people very well, interesting high profile speakers give talks often.

    Entrepreneurial thinking generally confined to product management.

    Pros

    Flat company - Easy to get things done. Lots of opportunity to create new programs, systems, processes and improvements. Super great people. Nice, smart, down-to-earth. Amazing stock performance!

    Cons

    Lean company - budgets and headcount don't always land where I need them to be. And the work then can get piled on.

    Advice to Management

    Understanding the financial strategy better for the companies growth & management would help get people behind the tight budgets and tough decisions needed to keep within those budgets..

    Pros

    Drive to do better! Emphasis on empowering employees and ofcourse the CEO. The office is located in Newark so the commute is not bad at all.

    Cons

    No major cons. Provide more transportation options to the Bart.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the focus on cultivating an inclusive culture.

    Pros

    Logitech is a special place to work with a unique culture that I've never experienced at other companies. So much potential to grow and continue to transform with great products.

    Cons

    Still growing so not always have the resources you need. But we are hungry and humble.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize resources so that employees don't always feel the burden of cutting back. Get it right and then carry on from there.

    I worked at Logitech full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I didn't get an exit interview so here's what I thought about Logitech:

    - Decent place to start a career if you're lacking experience. Logitech's current environment is collaborative and open so there may be opportunities to work cross functionally. But definitely start looking elsewhere after your first year mark, Logitech does not foster talent or promote within.

    - Great product discount, this includes their subsidiaries -- 50% off.

    Cons

    - There are no core values at Logitech. I doubt any current employees can answer what they are.

    - Compensation is not competitive at Logitech which is insane considering this is Silicon Valley. There is absolutely zero compensation philosophy in this company, you will not get any market adjustments. Most likely you will barely beat inflation each year.

    - Campus location in worse spots of the Bay Area. This is just not going to cut it if you're trying to hire talent or work with talent.

    - Work life balance does not exist in this company. Incompetent people managers shove work down their direct reports throats without trying to push back. There are many departments/areas that are not well-equipped to scale.

    Advice to Management

    None of the advice will work if effort doesn't come from top down. Invest in your employees that show passion and are curious to learn. Train your people managers to provide effective 1:1.

    Re-evaluate your employee engagement surveys (are there any?). Collaborate with HR function to create meaningful programs for employees that foster growth. There's no point in having inspire speaker talks if your current employees are drowning in work and can't attend.
