    Too much political intrigue.

    Senior Member Technical Staff (Former Employee) Denver, CO

    ProsSome compelling technical issues to solve in storage BU. Many smart, people-oriented, successful folks to work with, exchange ideas and learn from. Flexible work hours in most cases.

    ConsThere's a noticeable amount of "behind the scenes" maneuvering performed by management in every level from the bottom to the top. Instead of working together to find solutions, sometimes they work at cross purposes or fight turf wars.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAs the Avago merger settles and head count adjustments are made, think clearly about what you need to get done to meet first- and second-level goals. Don't worry about building an empire or fighting your old gun battles--you won't have time for that at Avago, since it's much more focused on components and the bottom line. Make your group more efficient (yes even if that means laying off some more).

    Used to be good, now not so much

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe overall benefits package is really awesome.
    The pay is also very competitive.
    Low to mid level workers are all very skilled.

    ConsLSI used to be a great place to work until we got a new CEO who brought in all of his Intel cronies and changed the entire culture of the company.
    Career advancement is non existent.
    Too much time spent on making non value add presentation slides to appease upper level managment.

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

    Prosgood environment. great colleagues. the manager gives you freedom to do the work. also very helpful if you encounter a problem.

    Consmanagement restructuring happened too often. poor design documentation on the engineer side makes it hard to understand the code and debug. avago acquisition makes everyone nerves.

    Advice to Senior Managementpeople are working really hard. stop changing the structure every year.
