    Pros

    The company really cared about employees and wanted them to have a great experience. Good pay, great benefits.

    Cons

    LSI got bought by Avago which is a company that does not care about employees at all.

    Advice to Management

    LSI no longer exists, unfortunately. Too bad former management sold out to a company that does not value the employee experience.

    I worked at LSI full-time

    Pros

    Flexible working at LSI. Always great to go above and beyond your job requirements. People were friendly to work with.

    Minimum downtime. Just like any other companies. Work more than usual to get the projects done on time. Still a good place to work at.

    Advice to Management

    Managers were good working together to achieve the product deliveries on time and met quality requirements. One on one biweekly meeting to talk about status.

    I worked at LSI full-time

    Pros

    LSI offers excellent health benefit. Cafeteria offers healthy food for lunch and snack and the people who work there are friendly. The LSI building complex is new and beautiful. The gym is clean and has all new equipments.

    Cons

    The stock price is too low for all the great products LSI is designing, developing, and selling to big OEMs. The parking lot is a bit small for the size of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Recommend executive management to do some research to find out why the stock price is low and what they will need to do to raise the stock price.
