    I have been working at Broadcom

    Pros

    Cool products, good benefits, smart and talented engineering workforce.

    Cons

    Too many technical people in managerial positions and not doing a competent job. Distribution of same project across different locations and each location periodically clamoring for good work. Need to be in right group at right time. Big inconsistencies in technical ladder across groups and locations.

    Interview Details

    It took a whole day. Each session 45 min with two persons. Mainly technical questions. The bar is pretty high and you'll need to be very clear about what you have in your resume. Also be prepared about the basics of the WLAN communications.
