    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.

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

    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.

    Pros

    -Great Company Culture that cultivates working together
    -cool company and products
    -great benefits

    Cons

    -limited work life balance
    -undefined roles contribute to workplace conflict
    -e=Entry level contract worker turnover contributes to a lot of duplicate work/excessive handoffs that delay projects
    -Flat organization focuses on hiring a lot of people that like to develop strategy not do the actual work

    Advice to Management

    - Think about hiring entry level workers that are willing to contribute, learn and execute on the strategy
    - Keep focusing on developing great products that people love!

    I have been working at Logitech full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - The opportunity to partner with strong business driving teams (Design, Engineering, Operations, Sales, etc...)
    - Generally strong company-wide culture
    - For the most part nicely designed, high quality products

    Cons

    - Low levels of professional development and career progression. This is a very cost centric organization and there is very little focus on people or placing folks in roles that set them up for success.
    - High level leaders don't often have strong people focus. This trickles down through the organization as evidenced by unfulfilled employees, high turnover, and rampant politics.
    - Poor work/life balance and working expectations
    - It would be exciting to have more disruptive products as opposed to acting from a follower position (ex. mobile speakers with amazon capabilities)

    Advice to Management

    There are so many smart, talented people in our organization. Perhaps we can have the right influences at higher levels and focus on empowering the people that drive the company.

    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.

    I have been working at Logitech (More than a year)

    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?
