    I worked at LSI full-time

    Pros

    Very good R&D opportunities and talented engineers to work with. Have many different technologies across networking to storage to learn and work. Working environment is friendly.

    Cons

    Management team has no vision either in marketing or technology. Only follow Wall St. 's direction and screwed up the whole business.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to internal experience engineers and they have better vision than some phony wall st. financial analyst.
