    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

    Great products, open culture, progressive practices ... and it's getting cooler and cooler all the time

    Cons

    No big negatives, but keep the momentum going ... stay hungry, stay foolish!

    Advice to Management

    Absolutely on a great path but please keep it going ... the potential is big

    Pros

    Good management that attempt to listen. Good CEO that has turned things around. Good global working environment and diverse team.

    Cons

    Lack of communication across departments. High turnover that prevent real relations building. Plenty of dysfunctional teams with duplicated functions across departments.

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

    Pros

    Logitech makes reliable products. Good benefit and better salary than semiconductor companies.

    Cons

    The performance review and carrier development is not serious in Logitech. There is no moral and value for the way employee are treated. Most of the managers try to make their own managers happy.

    Advice to Management

    Get ride off all the managers who do micro management and get credits from the value/ideas that engineers bring on the table

    Pros

    Passionate colleagues, Great product, and overall nice environment.

    Cons

    Incompetent upper management that didn't grow along with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Realize your limitations and empower the talented people employed to do their jobs before your new owners step in and clean up ship.

    Pros

    Great company with a long history.
    Current CEO has right ideas and driving them to change the company's culture.
    New hires are mostly awesome people and want to make a change.
    Benefits are really competitive

    Cons

    Still a lot of old time, old mentality people are present. They are unwilling to move and change to follow the leadership. Unwilling to learn new technologies and collaborate with new hires. Company needs to go through couple more cleaning cycles before it can truly change its culture. Your success really depends on the team you end up at. If it's one of the new fields, you'll be treated very well and given a lot of opportunities... If the field is very established - get ready to learn some old school techniques.

    Advice to Management

    Although the new company's culture is "Move fast. Speak up. Decide and own. Drive change..." and so forth, it's impossible to do while decision makers are not willing to listen to new hires, regardless of their experience. Some decisions are not communicated really well and leave employees hanging, like what just happened and what does it mean for me and my career?


  7. "Love this company!"

    Pros

    Cool products, attempt to create a small company culture, open environment, and great people. We love products and so will you!

    Cons

    Sometimes we operate too much like a big company but we are really trying to change. I think our office in Silicon Valley is kind of messy (sorry!) but it's at least really open and fun. Almost all the offices are cool or getting there!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to consumers and employees and encourage people to speak up and find challengers to their own ideas. It's the goal but we can't stop the all out effort to do this.

    Pros

    Great company culture that starts with the CEO and continues through the leadership team. Lots of opportunities to move to new business units and grow new skills.

    Cons

    Healthcare plans are so/so. Cafeteria is expensive and there aren't a lot of options nearby.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on staying hungry and humble

    Pros

    Great CEO that is well liked by almost everyone

    Cons

    Horrible finance culture and no career growth in finance; too much drama and self-promotion going on by a select few in finance team

    Advice to Management

    Continue to create great products
    Improve finance culture by removing the drama/self-promoters that detract from having a top finance team that would enable Logi to grow faster and more profitably in the the future

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

    Pros

    - work remote benefit
    - 401 k
    - ESPP
    - basic health (dental+vision) insurance
    - design team has great team culture

    Cons

    - old corporation
    - almost no benefits
    - tough commute
    - underpay junior-mid designers
    - no dogs in the office

    Advice to Management

    Please consider adding more benefits; with this kind of package, good designers would not give up their comfy SF/bay area lifestyle to work at Newark.
