    Pros

    1. Good place to work and learn newer technologies; storage/networking asic/chips/processors/soc. 2. Good R&D opportunities and technical opportunities 3. Vaules top/core employees 4. Well balanced in regards to work env and personal life sytle. 5. Flexible work hours and work from home options.

    Cons

    1. Confused Senior Management; Plans heavy investment in R &D and pulls plug off around the project completion time frame. Repeated failure in business acquisition integration in core products due to bureaucratic/lengthy processes in Old groups/divisions causing havoc in fast-moving smaller acquisition business. Some times heavy investments in some R&D group could go on un-noticed for a long time which yields very less or puny percentage of revenue returns; attitude of these kind of group engineers/management is questionable. 2. Sloppy Board of Directors and CEO & higher management; sleep on innovations in newer evolving technologies; viz storage & network convergence, SSDs etc. Very conservative approach in investing in evolving newer related technologies but does significant investment for it's core products which may cease in future.

    Advice to Management

    1. Worry about investments and their returns. 2. Plan acquisitions which yeild good returns. Don't buy companies to integrate into LSI divisions which are in a near future sell-off option. 3. Consider Investing in newer evolving realted technologies where there is considerable industry backing and lead the pack. Break high Management reservations/attitude towards evolving technologies in relevant field which yield good returns on appropriate investment. 4. Offer competitive package to engineers. 5. Shuffle technically capable staff in core products to newer evolving related technologies which isn't core competency.


  2. Very exciting company that treats it employees well

    Pros

    Exciting Technology Excellent Business Unit Management Lots of Opportunity Awesome Benefits

    Cons

    C-Level Management can be prone making decision based solely on impact to short term stock price. Not as nimble as smaller competition. Politics can sometimes cloud judgement

    Advice to Management

    Think about the smaller start up competition and realize we have to be nimble and flexible to compete and stay a market leader. Cannot rest on "We are LSI and because of that customers will always choose us"
