  • Senior Management
  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Principal Engineer  in  San Jose, CA
Current Employee - Principal Engineer in San Jose, CA

Pros

There is a good work culture here where multiple cultures work together well.
Low level management is competent and knowledgeable.
Pay is good and benefits are reasonable.
LSI is trying to innovate and they give awards for unique ideas.
Senior management seemed to be doing a good job over the last year and we were positioned to really improve earnings in 2014.

Cons

Avago Aquisition looks like Greed^10
They will cut 20% of the company
LSI was doing quite well and we will have an outstanding first quarter.
Avago cash balance and earnings declined from 2012 to 2013.
Its an old story where you have a shrinking market and CEOs buy other companies to cover their incompetence at growing their own revenues.

Greed, Fear, Intimidation != Innovation, Creativity, Growth

    Pros

    People are very nice for the most part to work with. Very casual atmosphere and flexible work hours

    Cons

    Has been acquired by another company - great deal of confusion and lack of communication as to what is happening. Will miss the outgoing president of LSI - he was/is a great person and down to earth - good at communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the lines of communication open to all levels of employees, not just the top executive level

    Neutral Outlook
