The Classic 'Good Ol' Boys Club'

Account Manager (Current Employee)
Newark, CA (US)

I have been working at Logitech full-time for more than 5 years

ProsNice balance of work, life. There are fun, talented people that work there, but there are also people that should be let go immediately -- Logitech rarely fires people.

ConsSome people in executive roles, are not really the executive/professional type...some of these people appear and behave that they'd more likely be a used-car salesman than an exectuive at Logitech.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook to the leading competitors to see what the norms are, and where the improvement needs to come from.

Used to be a great company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Newark, CA (US)

I have been working at Logitech full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood benefits, work-life balance, better than industry salary

ConsTime for some old time Senior Executives to step out. Lack of career opportunities. Not much lateral move either. Nothing to motivate the employees. HR has become a bystander and doesn't add any value. Not taking care of the good employees who are leaving one by one.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere are still fat across the top management in all departments. Identify them and let them go. Some of them are just waiting to be kicked out so they can get a package.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Awesome

Technical Lead (Former Employee)
Mississauga, ON (Canada)

I worked at Logitech full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFair salary, excellent corporate culture, awesome team

ConsIt's a pity they closed Canadian site...

Advice to Senior ManagementTake your technical guys' opinion more seriously... Do not put all eggs in one basket - trying to jump into Google TV thing almost bankrupted the company, while ALL technical leads warned against betting on it that hard. The CEO of those days is gone anyway....

A dinosaur

Engineer (Former Employee)
Newark, CA (US)

I worked at Logitech full-time for more than a year

ProsGym facility is the best one. Other than that, nothing else worth your while.

ConsBad location where you can socialize with people in the industry, bad politics where a kisser will get promoted, bad pay where you will get below average, and bad company where no new products that people will buy.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
