    I worked at Avago Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Great compensation and benefits
    - Great co-workers
    - Office politics rare

    Cons

    This company used to be part of Hewlett-Packard before spinning off into Agilent Technologies and then spinning off again into Avago Technologies. Recent acquisitions of LSI and Broadcom gives the appearance of growth and change, but behind the scenes it's business as usual. Engineers are promoted into leadership positions and there are very few, if any, really groundbreaking ideas being generated. Most people are just coasting through their careers, collecting paychecks, and turning the engineering crank. If you are interested in an exciting, high energy, high growth environment where you are doing meaningful work, this is not your company. If you want to spend the next 20 years getting paid really well and become really good at doing one thing over and over, then this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    No sense in giving advice to people who appear successful on the surface. My only question would be, "Do you REALLY enjoy the work you are doing?"
