    I worked at Broadcom full-time (more than 3 years)


    Broadcom is the undisputed leader as the silicon vendor for connectivity, switching and set top box spaces with no real competitor. This makes them a very stable employer. They prefer to hire senior and experienced engineers. That combined with the stability makes it a good place to work until you retire. People are generally very nice to work with. The workload is very manageable and most days you can be out by 5 to spend time with family.

    They have a very generous flex time policy, ESPP is excellent and they are very open to remote working arrangements.


    In my opinion, and despite all the pros, Broadcom is not a good place for anyone below 50 due to these three cons:

    Complete lack of recognition (monetary, verbal or titular): You can work day in and out for years on the same thing without any recognition or advancement.

    Quality of work: Most "developers" are glorified application engineers being ground up by extremely pushy customers. Expect to be thrown into the deep end without training, management support, or esoteric things like documentation. The interesting work is done by a caste of "architects". The job for the rest is to isolate these chosen few from irate customers.

    Very flinty and litigious company: Overall salary is below par. Benefits are very meh. 401k is a joke. They structure pay (using RSUs) in a way that defers paying for work already performed, ties employee up for years and has built in claw-backs. Great for the company. Not that great for employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In my opinion, Broadcom cannot be fixed without gutting and rebuilding the culture (and especially management culture) of the company.
