I have been working at Avago Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- very collaborative atmosphere
- very helpful colleagues
- small community so your achievements are very quickly visible

Cons

- Very flat org
- If you are looking to rocket to the top, sorry this is not the place
- 8 - 5 worker and extremely hard worker are both treated the same way when it comes to salary hikes or bonuses etc.
- There is no profit sharing concept so the money doesn't trickle down to engineers

    I have been working at Avago Technologies as a contractor

    Pros

    Great place to learn from a wide base of talented techs and engineers.

    Cons

    Expects more than what they give in return for a company that has $2B in the bank.
    No one is held accountable in an individual level which allow certain workers to get away with doing the bare minimum and still get maximum reward.
    Supervisors play favorites.
    No room to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Don't punish everyone for the actions of a few bad apples.

    Pros

    My manager is pretty flexible in terms of taking time off. It shows there is trust; he trusts me to do my job well.

    Cons

    The department I'm working tends to be constantly on a tight budget and some times the decision made by management make me feels the people up there is a bit short-sighted. To be fair, I'm not in the position to see the big picture at the top.

    Advice to Management

    Don't try to save on small money; it doesn't help in the budget but just makes those employees affected more frustrated.
