    Pros

    Overall, LSI was a great company to work for. Its greatest asset was its people. People cared about the company. People were willing to help one another within and outside their groups.

    LSI got acquired by Avago in 2014. Very different culture at Avago compared to LSI. Avago stock has certainly done well but more important things in life.
