    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Avago Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good 401k plan, decent benefits, good co-workers.

    Cons

    Avago management is all about bottom line and does not really care about employees. They buy companies (LSI, Emulex and now Broadcom) and remove (70% or so, or more) their employees (layoff) and then only keep "key" staff. Everything is micromanaged from the top down.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up!!!

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Avago Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible working hours and the colleagues are knowledgeable and easy going. The stock price grows steadily. Very promising.

    Cons

    Manager tried to secure their position and block the exposure for the employee. Not a good environment for people who wants to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Should promote a manager by his capability instead of nationality. Secret promotion happened here without official announcement. It's not a good environment for people who want to grow.

    I worked at Avago Technologies for less than a year

    Pros

    The type of work is challenging. My team was very helpful. They helped me a lot as an Intern.

    Cons

    Nothing really to mention (maybe because I was an Intern).

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more career opportunities for Interns.
