Coffee
Finance Manager (Former Employee) –  Alpharetta, GANovember 27, 2017
They have free coffee, tea and fountain soda pop in the office. The coffee is pretty good. The lunch room is OK. Some people have to sign a non-disparagement clause in their separation.

Good place to work for technical experience
Development Engineer (Former Employee) –  Alpharetta, GAOctober 17, 2017
Fairly casual environment. A bit understaffed, so always super busy. Interesting products. But sometimes not a lot of cooperation between teams. For example, a manufacturing engineer blamed the design for a manufacturing problem and refused to help investigate/troubleshoot/resolve the problem.
Pros
Technical design work
Cons
Long-distance bosses don't have full visibility to issues, Products slow to launch

Good base pay and bonus payout, seem to provide opportunity for advancement and promotion.

Company lacks cohesion and work/life balance
Product Support (Former Employee) –  USAJanuary 5, 2015
There are many locations scattered across the US. Most were aquired companies that still act as if they are separate from the corporation that bought them. This causes a schism among the various business units which makes individual jobs unnecessarily difficult and stressful. This is most evident when working as a remote employee stationed at one business unit while belonging to another business unit based out of another state.

Many business units lack a cohesive direction due to this schism and employees are forced to navigate an array of obstacles thrown in their way by competing business units.

If you are in any kind of a (non-leadership) support role that includes after hours work, then you will effectively earn less money for every uncompensated hour of overtime that you are expected/required to work. This sort of abusive behavior is why unions sprang up to protect workers in other industries. Sadly, there is no IT Union that one can join to regain a healthy work/life balance and be paid fair wages.

Massive uncompensated overtime is what drove me away from this company. Perhaps you'll have a better experience? (Only if you're an hourly employee)

I do not recommend this company.
Pros
Casual attire most days (business casual when visitors were around - which was often!)
Cons
Management expects employees to work tons of uncompensated overtime (as if they, too belonged to the leadership team). Borderline illegal amount of OT.

Advanced Technology but behind on contingency planning
Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Lenexa, KSApril 4, 2013
A typical day at Landis+Gyr was like walking through a maze. You know where you want to go but are met with so many obstacles and red tape that when it is time to go home you are left wondering if the task would ever be complete.

There is so much leading edge technology at Landis+Gyr that it a great company to learn from providing someone is willing to share knowledge.

The management is filled with so many individuals trying to keep their jobs that honesty is a thing of the past.

My advice is that if you get a job with this company, use it as a stepping stone. Do not stay there... You will be sourly disappointed and under educated because so many people keep information so close to the vest in order not to be the one let go.
Pros
compensation package not bad
Cons
very little advancement opportunity
