Pros

It's a paycheck. There's heat, light, and air-conditioning.

Cons

As a leveraged buyout company, management is very short sighted. There is no interest in growth or long term development. The only emphasis is putting lipstick on the pig, to inflate impressions of the place, to make it sell in an IPO.

Advice to Management

Communicate with the employees! Share at least as much information as you do with the SEC. Stop cursing in employee meetings.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The best reason to work at Avago is to make money, meeting incredible good people, and learn how to be innovative to do your job with little or no budget.

    Cons

    The downside is they internal business ethics are compromised, Senior Management doesn't believe in Marketing and Advertisement and it's capabilities. There is very limited budget for Marketing and Advertisement, they also don't put a lot of emphasis into the web site, which would be the most inexpensive way to communicate to potential customers, current customers and vendors.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees, focus on fixing the foundation of the company and don't just focus on getting the company ready for going public. It would be important to pay attention to outside vendors and customers via blogs, open up communications and create deep rooted partnerships.

    I worked at Avago Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Great Technology. Good flexibility nd work Environment. Also good Project management. Good reward for results. No barriers toward high level management.

    Cons

    When buks are concerned People is not considered. To save some money 20 plus years or more of Experience or International consideration do not mean anything. Lots of knowledge easily lost .

    Advice to Management

    Consider People on a different scale Dollar is not the onlg value. Consider the time to acquire Experience hands on. This is much more valuable t'han balance sheet and brings value in time to the company.
