Abhi tallies the layoffs again...

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

Prosthe engineers are talented. The benefits are good. The work can be challanging.

ConsThe bottom line for LSI is the stock price. In there's a revenue shortfall LSI will lay off anywhere from 10-25% of the U.S. based engineers every December or January to make up for it, to meet their profit target. The company has a zero budget process, and do stock buybacks instead of increasing the R&D budget. To invest in new areas they lay off in others. There's constant layoffs and it's not always performance-based. The engineers are scared. Productivity has gone down. The top executives have insulated themselves from the sad reality of their actions and the affect it has had on the LSI community. Does this sound like an enjoyable workplace to you?

Advice to Senior Managementplease have a real conversation with your employees at the next quarterly update.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
