    Pros

    1. There are tons of other interns at Logitech and many opportunities to network, and hang out. It's a great way to meet new people.
    2. Weekly Lunch & Learns with upper level management + free lunch, these were some of my favorite parts of the program.
    3. My manager and team in my group were great. They were all very supportive friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    1. Generally interns are given a specific project to work on. Sometimes this means you're not working with current employees on ongoing products for the company. However, there are still plenty of opportunities to learn and if you ask your manager they can get you involved with other tasks besides your individual project.

    Advice to Management

    You have a great intern program. I feel like the company valued their interns and tried to make the experience good one.

    I worked at Logitech full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The Culture and Values were great and the working relationships across functional groups was very positive and productive. Excellent colleagues.

    Cons

    At time of my departure, Management did not have a clue (or din't care) about the employee workload and very little understanding of day to day work details for WW Product launches.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees when they are beyond burn-out work load levels. Get a good understanding of the resource impact from late product changes.

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

    Pros

    Passionate team working on continually improving staple consumer electronic peripherals.

    Cons

    Somewhat old school, good old boy mentality. Not a great characteristic for a technology company.

    Advice to Management

    Evolve and break some of the old school culture. Even the buildings themselves feel so dated. Attract more progressive employees and perhaps new overall culture.

    Pros

    It is a great learning opportunity for employees newly into their career. There is also job security and a good company environment. Employees care about one another.

    Cons

    The compensation isn't as competitive as some other tech companies in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Increase compensation packages and work on retaining employees. You will pay that out in recruiting fees and churn anyway.

    I worked at Logitech (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Compensation is very competitive. Due to high turnover salary can be negotiated up due to constant need for new hires.

    Cons

    Poor/weak management. A lot of middle managers, but very few leaders/mentors. Extremely high turnover combined with recent layoffs led to an environment of insecurity and uncertainty.

    Advice to Management

    Need more leaders and fewer micro-managers.

    While the company have always focussed on building great products. .off late there is big focus on cost.

    Pros

    There was zero accountability for me.

    Cons

    There was zero accountability. My manager had three different bosses over the last year that resulted in much idleness for our team. I had little direction and work to do.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, wonderful dedicated employees who care about what they do. Group pulls together and help each other when work gets backlogged.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement are not really there, pay is below market. Employees work long hours for weeks or months on end including weekends. I hope they work to change the workload of the team.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the employee workload, if the majority of the team is working long hours, it maybe time to increase headcount.
