I have been working at LSI full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

There is a good work culture here where multiple cultures work together well.
Low level management is competent and knowledgeable.
Pay is good and benefits are reasonable.
LSI is trying to innovate and they give awards for unique ideas.
Senior management seemed to be doing a good job over the last year and we were positioned to really improve earnings in 2014.

Cons

Avago Aquisition looks like Greed^10
They will cut 20% of the company
LSI was doing quite well and we will have an outstanding first quarter.
Avago cash balance and earnings declined from 2012 to 2013.
Its an old story where you have a shrinking market and CEOs buy other companies to cover their incompetence at growing their own revenues.

Greed, Fear, Intimidation != Innovation, Creativity, Growth

Advice to Management

Really? Would they listen?

    I worked at LSI full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Balanced work/life and some interesting challenging works. Engineers skills are excellent.

    Cons

    Too much of micro management and political fights. Some managers don't know when the day ends and the night begins. We suppose to be reached anywhere and anytime for any matters which can't wait until tomorrow?
