    I have been working at Broadcom

    Pros

    Good Technology and leader in many fields
    Some smart people around
    Tough and smart high level management that listens to all levels, communicates well and keeps direction well.

    Cons

    Big discrepancies in title/$ vs. competency/knowledge between different offices.
    Bad or "not up to the task" mid and low level management.
    Actual $/hour is low due to lots of overtime and $US salaries vs. $CAD is not comparison at all.
    Bad formal communication that leads to lots of inefficiencies and wasted time.
    Good people are not regarded for doing things smarter, but rather for "hard work&go with the flow".
    In many cases project milestones are scheduled unrealistically and the ones who miss-manage it do not pay the price, but the ones who have "know how" pay with overtime. So, deadlines are missed often and key saviors are not rewarded later (maybe that is typical in many companies, although I will never stop expecting better)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep leaders "in line" and continue good work, always trying to improve it.

    I have only advice for high level management in three steps:
    1. fire any bad mid&low management,
    2. promote&develop new technical leaders,
    3. hire "know how" people
    After all, implement better policies:
    1. reward / punishment
    2. practical formalization of knowledge that reduces wasted time and increases efficiency. Reward efficiency.
