    I worked at Broadcom full-time (more than 8 years)


    - Less bureaucratic, gives engineers and managers lot of responsibility and decision making authority
    - Engineering employees are very technical and technical skills, hard work and team work is rewarded well
    - Great insurance plans, RSUs, and ESPP make compensation top notch
    - Great products, with enormous satisfaction to engineering community


    - Very little or no cons if working in business unit which is highly profitable
    - Work-life balance is not optimal

    Referred by a friend. Manager scheduled a 45 mins phone interview when he got my resume. Followed by two separate 45 mins phone interview held by engineers in that group. Just went through my projects on the resume, and asked some basic questions based on my experience. They asked very detailed stuff to make sure you understand what is happening in your projects. All of them are very nice and kind.
