    Culture is unique and strong. Small company but established and successful. Employees can make an big impact. Nice employees that are easy to work with. Collaboration at all levels. Business strategy is making traction. A lot to look forward to.

    Given growth phase, sometimes resources can seem limited as we control costs. Resources don't always seem evenly distributed across functions.

    Keep it up! Great job so far. Stay humble and hungry.

    I have been working at Logitech full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's really easy to slip under the radar if you set your estimates high and you know how to play the blame game.

    Free coffee, Free Gym.

    Cons

    Lots of Inertia in methods and code. Finger pointing is common. Software release schedule is tightly tied to hardware deadlines. Someone goofing off in a half-dozen timezones away could cost you weeks worth of work. Tldr; Hurry up and wait.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your engineers. We're not trying to cheat you. If we say it's hard, Either A) It's ACTUALLY gonna take some time. B) it's dead simple, but we have a sneaking suspicion you're going to keep changing your mind up until the last second.

    Pros

    The Sweet Spot for passionate product manager in consumer electronics. Ability to design cool product experiences that consumer use everyday. Small enough company to have an impact, large enough to have great design and engineering capabilities

    Cons

    Risk Adverse. Tend to be cautious about new categories. And slow at times because of the consensus building culture in certain part of the company.

    I worked at Logitech (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Logitech attracts some of the greatest minds and personalities. It's easy to develop high regards and respect for fellow employees

    Cons

    In an effort to keep OpEx low, they are not current on many industry tools especially in the areas of document control and web development.

    Advice to Management

    Better tools help employees work more efficiently and keeps people from leaving to acquire skills to remain marketable.

    I have been working at Logitech full-time

    Pros

    Executive management is motivated and trying hard to bring the company around. Work and life balance is decent for the most part and there are some really great people there. Have some really incredible products in music and gaming.

    Cons

    For every great person there are four mediocre ones which frustrate the efforts to change. For every great product there are four mediocre ones. Too many of the employees are 10-4 with 2 hour lunch types and content with the status quo making it feel like a slowly sinking ship. Bay Area is too hot to retain the good talent because of all of this. No career development and few possibilities of advancement.

    Advice to Management

    To be truly great you have to spend some money and not settle for good enough in personnel. Design is important but form follows function not vice versa. Listen to the boat rockers more they are likely trying as hard as you to change things for the better.
