    Pros

    There are many "pockets" wiithin LSI. Generally speaking, there are a lot of competent people at LSI. You can learn alot from them. Depending upon your manager, there is latitude to balance work/home life. Benefits are decent. During the recent downturn, they did make an effort to minimize the impact of reductions affecting employees. LSI has gobbled up a few companies during the last 5 years. It is a different company than what it was previously. A bit more focused.

    Cons

    Again, depending on what specific division/group you work in, I found the environment to be very political. I see some upper management neglecting their watch and allowing terrible practices and behavior with some managers under them. It seems that there is some "in crowd" and if you are not part of that group, you go nowhere or are terminated.

    They seem to have about two "layoffs" per year. This causes alot of anxiety. I get the feeling that they "tinker" around with their workforce and often decide that they want to do something else and then let people go and then go thru that same process again and again.

    Definitley do your homework and talk to people about the specific group you are inquiring about joining. There are some good groups with good managers and then there are some groups which have terrible managers who have no concept of dealing with people on a human level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve motivation. There are some managers who have no idea what that is about.
    Just being knowledgable about the technical aspects of the product does not a manager make. You need managers who can lead and motivate and treat people with respect communicate. Be proactive and investigate what is going on in your ranks.
