I worked at LSI

Pros

Best Intern experience I have had, the allowed me to basically work across the entire source, which very few companies do and all of the full time software engineers were very helpful. The company has a solid market base and are looking to expand into the networking area which is one of the reasons why I joined. Also the work times are very flexible. I typically would start each day around 8:15 or 8:30 but some other interns would start at like 9 or 9:30 and then work until 6:00 or 6:30. If you had to leave or take care of something to during the work day people really didn't mind, as long as you were getting your work done.

Cons

The only downside was the location. Working in Wichita was not exactly convenient for me. They do have offices all over though, and have a decentralized development strategy so if I worked there full time I wouldn't be stuck in Wichita.

    Pros

    Get to work with some of very talented down to earth engineers. Engineers get along with each other very well. Cameradry and team work are common.

    Cons

    Too many middle managements who are not very technical. Promotion to management tends to weigh more on being agreeable with other top/middle managers and less on technical merit and less on capabilities to manage or set technical direction. In other words, LSI is full of middle managers who don't know how to manage people and don't know how to set technical direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove some of the middle management layers or replace middle managements with technical people who
    can manage. Afterall, this is a high tech company.
