    Pros

    Leading edge technology, and a fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Senior management overcommitting to customer requests. While not necessarily a bad thing, it dissolves the need for Program Management's schedules.


  3. LSI Corporation, before it was acquired by Avago Technologies in May 2014, was a great company to work for.

    I worked at LSI full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    LSI offered good benefits. LSI has very talented employees; the most talented of all the companies I've worked with. Employees are willing to work with you. Despite its size, LSI was able to adjust to changes in the market and industry to stay competitive. Middle management is very accessible.

    Cons

    Some groups lack organization and structure, which I think reduces their productivity. There is little communication between groups which causes some things to fall through the cracks. The "Cons" listed above were even more evident after the Avago acquisition. Avago business units seem to have little communication, let along coordination, between each other.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication and coordination between business units.

    I have been working at LSI full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers and good work/family balance. Several senior engineers available for support and resource for knowledge. Benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Upper management lacks leadership, vision, and direction. Constant changes in org, and pretty much everything else. Decisions made with little or no information.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to low level managers, they know more than upper managers.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at LSI full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Must say my fellow engineers and managers were nice.

    Cons

    No direction at all. You must be a self starter, and i would encourage you to work in Milpitas before going to any remote office.

    Advice to Management

    Time for new blood! Some of you have been there over 30 years.

    I have been working at LSI full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    LSI has strong leadership in storage technology. The work your involved will be leading the industry, and your co workers are very technical savvy. They promote that you expand your breadth into different areas. They have very good training program. Vacation is three weeks starting, then four weeks after five years. I believe the pay is consistent with its peers, and pay raises and reviews have occurred just about every year I been here. There is onsite cafeteria and gym+showers at my location.

    Cons

    There is a pending purchase of the company, so there is some uncertainly. Some managers are not technical savvy, and rely heavily on leads. Layoffs happen all the time, so you can't go into cruise control. The yearly reviews seemed to be scripted. You have to walk on water to get promoted past staff engineer.

    Advice to Management

    Need innovative thinking outside the box to come up with product which will grow company into expanding segment which is not already saturated.

    I have been working at LSI as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very good work culture, good work life balance. Very friendly atmosphere. People are willing to take time out to answer questions if any. Overall a very good experience

    Cons

    things are sometimes not as structured as you would think and needs a lot of initiation and development of methods to add structure to the organization.

    Pros

    A great company to work for someone looking to grow in a very technical focused career, Fellow employees are experts in the industry. Management supports, if not encourages, moving into different roles with the business unit. I believe compensation is on par with the industry.

    Cons

    There could be more better on-site benefits and improved infrastructure, since it kind of sucks (though there has been few updates recently). Performance appraisal is an eye wash and really needs a overall corporate wide.
