    I have been working at Avago Technologies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fast work environment, smart people

    Cons

    This company doesn't care about one, two or 10 years in the future. The management is shortsighted, and can't see longer than 6 months in the future. They are hated by all of their customers (HP, Dell, Google) since they raise prices on a whim.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that everyone hates you, and wants to jump ship as soon a new Ethernet/WLAN supplier is available.

    Pros

    Good company and above average pay, very good benefits, repetitive easy work with okay work environment.

    Cons

    Training could be better, lots of inexperienced workers and competition for advancement is sometimes based on favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in training and make more decisions based on performance rather than favoritism

    I have been working at Avago Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great & challenging environment to work for. Competitive but compelling work place. Pretty decent compensation. Mature corporation but start-up work environment --> good benefits + good technical learning experience.

    Cons

    Trainings available for new hires but it is not sufficient and 100% related to on-going projects. But at the end of the day, you can still meet the objectives yet with great pains and effort. No pains no gains, so it's worth it. It gave me a boost in technical skills after spending weeks/months in the lab for debugging & developing.

    Advice to Management

    It's R&D I understand. But cut variety and focus on mandatory projects. It will help better with group management as well as project management. In a long run, it will cut costs & make employees happy. So far so good on our management, but it can be better. Cheers for the hard work and prepare for the harder work to come.

    I worked at Avago Technologies

    Pros

    LSI used to be very good company to work for. Good working environment. Good product and profit margin. Work and life balance

    Cons

    Since acquired by Avago, it is a completely different company. New management only care about sheet balance and paper number. Force everyone come to office no matter if the work can be remotely done or not

    Advice to Management

    keep talent people not only look at the paper sheet balance

    "End Of An Era"

    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I worked at Avago Technologies

    Pros

    While working for LSI Corporation, the overall compensation was competitive, the work environment was great, the perks were good, the leadership was good, in general, and the the best part was working was such a great and diverse employee base.

    Cons

    After being purchased by Avago, there was little information on direction by upper management. Morale was very low, and a lot of employees left, on their own accord, for better opportunities. There was mass layoffs on the legacy LSI side. Whole divisions were sold off for pennies on the dollar.

    Pros

    Smaller company with professional work environment. Managers try to clear roadblocks from you getting your job done. Plenty of interesting technical projects to work on. Great location.

    Cons

    Equipment set has a lot of older tools. Equipment engineer and technician staffing is very lean. Tough to get a promotion.

    Advice to Management

    You have a good thing going here. Don't forget who got you there.
