LSI Corp. Employee
in Allentown, PA

"I was employed by LSI Corporation for almost 8 years. I enjoyed being a part of a very diverse Accounting/Audit group. I found LSI to embrace an ethical environment. However, most members of management were more concerned with promoting their own careers and lacked the ability to provide proper leadership that would have helped others to expand on their knowledge and skills, thereby increasing the potential for a more successful career. LSI was purchased in 2014 by Avago Technologies."

Architect

"LSI has been purchased by Avago. The deal made was poor, and a slap in the face to employees. Huge swaths of LSI employees now face the merciless chopping block of Avago. Not a great situation, and not a great deal for the employees who built the company."

LSI Corp. Employee

"LSI is a complex place to work as it lacks the ability to make decisions that would set clear directions. While there are lots of good people, they are working at cross purposes, so there is a fair amount of confusion as to what needs to be done by when."

LSI Corp. Employee
in San Diego, CA

"In working for LSI, I found that management had a very small circle of influential personnel that made both tactical and strategic decisions. The inability to think strategically and adjust to industry changes (particularly diversification of customer base) led to the eventual end and acquisition by another company."

Senior Systems Engineer

"Learning to be a better engineer in electronics."

What do you like about working at LSI Corp.?

"Debugging and validating the Storage controllers with the help of analyzers, logs."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"The company as a whole has good ethics, especially my Senior Manager(Erik Paulsen), is an awesome person to work with. For anyone who loves to troubleshoot, I would say have/start a career as a systems engineer as it provides you a whole picture of how the system works. Then you can specialize in specific field of systems engineering."

What don't you like about working at LSI Corp.?

"Scope of work. Like to be involved in Hardware roles. Like trouble shooting/designing electronic circuits."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"A plan on how an employee can reach to his aspirations. Like mentioning what he lacks for the role he seeks. Management should never hire a person, just because he/she did internship and they had to hire one of the interns. If the candidate is not promising then I feel, the management should let the position be vacant.Strictly no room for friendships and hiring past friends into group. Only if the candidate is deemed to be fit by fellow members of the group, should he/she be hired.Management should never promote a person in a group to the managerial level, just because the previous manager had left. He/She could be a lead until a new manager fills the position."

Software Engineer
in Colorado Springs, CO

"This was and probably still is an awesome company"

What do you like about working at LSI Corp.?

"They were on the bleeding edge of semi-conductor technology. We were inventing and developing the next wave of technology."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"You better be good, they only work on the next generation of stuff and do the lowest level of coding you can imagine. The work they do doesn't allow you to look up a help doc to see what do do next because you are doing it for the first time probably. If you aren't good with machine language, assembly, NVRAM, firmware and BIOS technology you will be over your head. I loved the fact that I was always pushed."

What don't you like about working at LSI Corp.?

"My first real software engineering job, so my pay was very low and because of that my pay growth was limited."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Nothing, keep doing what you do. Tell HR to change the pay raise policies."
