    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?

    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.

    I worked at Logitech full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Everyone I personally met are supportive
    - the culture depends on what team you work for, my team wasn't micromanaging and was very supportive in not only my own growth, but also as a team
    - I had flexibility and freedom to help work on different projects with different departments to keep learning
    - I worked here in my early-mid 20s and it was great! I worked under and with smart people, managers behind prestigious backgrounds and school backgrounds (MIT, Stanford, SJSU, etc.) who taught me that work experience is more important than what school you graduated. All the managers, directors, VPs I met across different departments were so nice and open to making time to meet with me 1-1 to give career advice and talk about how I can grow. They helped introduce me to meet other people in other departments to join projects that I'm interested in.

    Cons

    - i was an intern, went to a contracted position, and then got hired full time and was told it was due to budget reasons from the higher management. Although I did receive insurance while contracted, I didn't appreciate them milking out me and the other intern for at least 6-9 months before we both got hired as full time employees. As a full time, I was compensated at the lower range of the average salary. But a colleague of mine, who had another job offer was able to use that to leverage for a better compensation.
