    I worked at LSI full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    great Benefits, flexibility, able to work remote. some of the people was nice but upper management took awhile getting use too.

    Cons

    Upper management didn't trust any staff below them to make a decision. Too many meetings and powerpoint presentations. Never enough time to get your work done.
    The company was sold to the nearest buyer and staff not located in CA was screwed. The rich upper management left with a lot of money in their pocket. We lower class was left looking for employment and living off of cheese.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Focused on products the company specializes in. Good benefits package and nice work life balance.
    Allows working from home depending on the type of project your are involved in. In my job, did not have much work related travel.

    Cons

    Small company mentality... ultra careful in spending money to develop. No room for career advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to developing employee skills.

    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in San Jose, CA

    I worked at LSI full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Until the recent purchase by Avago, LSI was a fantastic company to work for. They treated employees well, and had great benefits and wellness programs, as well as a wonderful recognition program.

    Salaries were competitive, and the work environment was positive, especially as they started to come out of a difficult recession.

    Cons

    As the acquisition with Avago neared completion, it was clear the company would no longer be an employee friendly company. One of the first key benefits taken away was the opportunity to work remotely. LSI would allow employees the opportunity to work from home 1 or 2 days a week, to help improve the life balance for those that tend to work very long hours and often 7-8 days a week.

    Since the acquisition, Avago has broken the company into pieces, and sold off large product lines, therefore leaving even more employees out of work, all in the pursuit of profit for shareholders. I feel really bad for those left behind at the minimal existence of a company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hock Tan needs to stop micro managing employees, and consider the well being of his people.
