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

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Colorado Springs, CO

    ProsLSI 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.

    ConsSome 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 Senior ManagementImprove communication and coordination between business units.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
