    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Avago Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The stock has been going up because the CEO focuses on squeezing every penny of cost out and is quick to dump any business that he thinks is not cutting it. If you can get some stock that is where you can see some income upside.

    Cons

    100% financially driven. Employees are tools to meet the numbers. If you are happen to be in a group where the business looks good to the CEO you may be OK but if the business softens at all or your in an area that he doesn't think is up to his standards you should keep your resume up to date. The challenge that creates is that everyone seems to look out for themselves and erodes any team environment quickly.

    Advice to Management

    It is a long list.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Avago Technologies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Many of the veteran employees are very talented and intelligent former HP employees who are innovative, hard-working, and are a genuine pleasure to work with. They are smart people working diligently under very challenging circumstances.

    Cons

    CEO and VPs rule with intimidation and fear. It is a caustic environment where relentless pressure is placed on making the numbers each quarter while resources atrophy to maximize corporate profits.

    Advice to Management

    You can motivate with respect, instead of fear, getting more productivity, creativity, and commitment out of your employees over the long run, and still produce amazing financials.
