    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Stock is doing well and the compensation is ok.

    Cons

    1. Poor management; most execs are just retired and enjoying their perks 2. Hiring practices and policies are the worst you can see in any real technology R&D company. 3. This is not a R&D or a cutting edge product development company any more; just focused on increasing margins.

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

    Pros

    Great people. They are fun to work with and not a lot of office politics. The company does support its employees and allow them freedom to do thier best work with a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Good company to work for they support thier employees well but have made some poor management decisions on staffing that forced a later decision to layoff about 15% of the people working in my business unit.

    Advice to Management

    When a group is slipping on its comittments try in getting more help or slowing down the project schedule and look beyond the near commitments. This will keep you from laying off people in large quanties.

    Pros

    Structure is set up to reward employees when company and division does good. Most of the time the company met its goals.

    CEO is a bit extreme on cutting staff and facilities. Cubicles and labs keep shrinking. Staff head counts are controlled from the top.
