Software Test Engineer (Current Employee), Norcross, GAJune 3, 2014
Working with advanced HBAs, controllers in a lab environment was the coolest part of the job. The opportunity to break into some of the most intricate parts of hardware down to circuit/hex level coding and using debugging tools.

Busy and fluid technology firm with a long history and, ironically, many ice cream parties yet cult-like-participation with global health initiatives
Technical Support Engineer II (Current Employee), Norcross, GAMay 9, 2014
Pros: cutting edge technology, age and cultural diversity, compensation, benefits, education reimbursment
Cons: decoupled resources, teams, and channels; constant reorganization; quality neglect and (ultimately) bad business decisions
Respond to team and customer issues, assist system critical customers into degraded and finally recovery if possible. Reproduce and report critical issues, versioning enhancements and bugs, and cosmetic product requests. Some days required resource acquisition and management tasks which took away from primary goals. Documentation and content authorship – more... and administration; Sales Training and Technology expos – less

Productive workplace with friendly people
Jr. Test Technician (Former Employee), Colorado Springs, COMay 5, 2014
Pros: unscheduled breaks, lot of tech to learn, friendly and helpful employees and managers, decent pay
Cons: very limited job advancement but great if you are working towards a bachelors in ee
If you are in the electrical engineering/software development field this is a very good place to work for. I saw plenty of employees that were able to move around to different projects or take on different job roles. The people who worked here were in general friendly and helpful. Employees were nice and the managers were very helpful and considerate. – more... Breaks were unscheduled so you could take a break whenever you got free time from your project so long as they weren't too long or too often. Cafeteria/lunchroom has a ping-pong table to play with other employees. Lots of people working here ride bikes or take walks on their lunch breaks so there are opportunities to go outside and hang out with fellow employees.
If you are on contact and they are in another field or do not have a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering or do not have good scripting skills, you will not be able to move up out of a contract position. Some salaried employees look down on you or look at you with pity if you are a contractor. Also any time that you are out due to sickness, natural disaster, etc and your project is needing to make deadlines, be expected to make the time up over the weekends if necessary. Salaried employees do not have to necessarily follow that rule but contractors are expected to show up for the make up time. Other than that overtime is only available if the project needs the extra time. – less

Excellent people. Sad that it is going away
Sr. Engineering Manager (Current Employee), Allentown, PAApril 8, 2014
Pros: above average salaries
Cons: poor work/life balance. acquisition by avago could be terminal
I work with some of the most intelligent, hard working people that I have ever met. They are more dedicated and put in more hours than any group I have worked with, including at a start-up.

The work in challenging and the salary is very good but it does require you to put your 'life' in 2nd place when projects heat up.

Avago has just acquired LSI – more... and appears to be gutting the company. Very sad. – less

LSI is a great place to work
Program manager (Current Employee), San Jose, CAMarch 24, 2014
Pros: great people
Cons: like to see more women in upper management
There are just a good bunch of people I've worked with at LSI. Working with good people is the most enjoyable part of my job. The hardest part is getting some people to cooperate. The management has always had an open door policy which I appreciate. Over the years I've learned so much, different systems, adjusting to different organizations I've learned – more... to mainly go with the flow, and keep doing the job at hand. – less

VP, Quality Assurance (Current Employee), Irvine, CAJanuary 15, 2014
Pros: dynamic and multi-culture work force
Cons: indecision from executive management at times
LSI has been a very exciting place to work which has led to our IT department achieving significant improvements in the overall quality and timeliness of our release cycles of our eLS application.

The greatest reward is the quality of the staff and how well we work together when address any and all issues. Being part of the management team and my involvement – more... in implementing our current code delivery model (Agile Methodology) has been very interesting and beneficial in identifying and resolving a variety of issues across all of the IT department. Seeing the progress and improvements had been very satisfying.

We support roughly 10 platforms here at LSI/Service Link which often results in production releases almost on a daily bases. The tight coordination between QA, development Business Analyst and system analyst need for us to be successful has allow each respective team to understand the efforts required from all resources has taught us all a great deal about one another’s charter within the IT world. This is without question the most challenging aspect of working here. – less
