    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.

    Excellent place to work, leadership investing in technology and not afraid to stand back and let employees do the work. People oriented company with great benefits, competitive pay, and an understanding for work-life balance.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, LSI was purchased back in May of 2014, and the new management has made some changes...

    Pros

    LSI was a great company. Good people, good leadership, no debt.

    Cons

    Avago Technologies bought them in May of 2014 and the company just began to unravel. Avago works on a skeleton crew and their motto is "Good enough". It became apparent very quickly that Avago only bought LSI in order to make money off of it's parts. They never intended to keep the company intact. The Allentown, PA employees have faded away to nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Avago needs a new CEO. That is their only hope.

    Pros

    excellent location (downtown DC), great past performance qualifications. Good proposal support staff.

    Cons

    Do not treat employees fairly, quick to pull the trigger on letting new people go

    Advice to Management

    Give new employees the benefit of the doubt when a less than desirable event takes place on their watch.
