    Pros

    pays well. Outside of that there are no pros..

    Soul crushing, I've seen a lot experienced folks replaced by cheaply paid visa holders who are unless.

    Pros

    long history in the industry. good benefits.

    Cons

    mean-time-to-re-org was way to small. Too much effort spent on struggling and dying business units. The Intel managers that came in 2005 to restructure the company did the one thing they knew how to do, cut. And they could not cut everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Align all VPs to the ONE thing that matters, operating income or whatever, then measure and reward it. Too many cooks spoil the stew.

    Pros

    Very good monetary compensation. That's it.

    Cons

    Avago medical worse than LSI's. CEO is all about stock and investors, which is great for monetary compensation, but they don't care about people as individuals. They drop people for a little more profit. 40% OM? If they don't hit it they lay off? Really? They kill all telecommuting employees, no matter how good they are. If you're a person, don't work here.

    Advice to Management

    Give a crap about people. They're people. What you do to them will happen to you. Do you get that?

    Pros

    It's a check and there's as much overtime as you can handle.

    Cons

    Soon as the fall rolls around, prepare to get laid off. You will see groups of people disappear every Wednesday around Oct 1st.

    Advice to Management

    Let people know that it's seasonal employment.

    Pros

    Great people who are smart, have fun and work hard...

    Cons

    Executive Team only concerned about share holder value and not the folks out in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Never lose sight of the fact that the loyal hard working people out in the field on a daily basis are the one who work with your customers and are critical to your success.
