    I worked at LSI full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good legacy LSI people (other than the ones in management, new upper management is terrible)

    Cons

    - New CEO is a power freak and tries to monitor and control every little thing in the company, himself. Even managers seem to be scared of taking initiatives.
    - The new corporate management is hostile and threatening t.
    - Live and work with the fear of being laid-off any day.
    - No free snacks or coffee anymore, a very rare phenomenon for a tech company.
    - The company (new CEO mostly) now considers itself a Singapore company, not an USA company. Tries to force Singaporean work culture on American employees.
    - Company mindset has now changed to save money to show investors that they are making profits. This translates directly into NO R&D funding. So no real technological growth anymore.
    - In reality company is now very stagnant without any innovations, profitable (on papers) only due to the new aggressive cost-cutting measures.
    - No bonus or perks anymore. Be happy that they pay for health insurance (partially).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Convince your boss, the new CEO, to invest some money and confidence into the employees.
