    I worked at Broadcom full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and facilities. Lots of great minds to learn from.

    Cons

    Questionable senior leadership all with background in chip design who doesn't understand clearly the role of firmware and software

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in software development and understand the development process. It is not enough to simply buy the next technology and integrate when the foundation was already shaky,.
