    Overall development in terms of knowledge, dealt with wide range of products, healthy work environment.

    SAS Software Test (Current Employee) Bangalore (India)

    ProsCompensation more than average in industry.
    You have to work really hard to move up the ladder.
    Constantly challenge yourself and meet the expectations of the management.

    ConsYou may feel stressful sometimes to deliver the work when manager doesn't understand the kind of work you are supposed to deliver. Keep in constant touch with them, letting them know your progress.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere should be more of training for the new recruits as well as those staying in the company. Constant development of the employees may prove beneficial in the long term.

    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.
