    I worked at Broadcom as an intern (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good hourly rate for interns. Good experience for resume and future prospects.Team members were fun and friendly. Overall good work environment, not too stressful at all.

    Cons

    Constant noise working in the lab (used earplugs or noise-canceling headphones) but get used to it after a couple of days. Some managers aren't the best to work for if you dislike being micromanaged.

    Pros

    Great IT support. Company created best environment for engineers to be productive. Great ESPP program. Company operates efficiently.

    Cons

    Top management needs better vision. The MPS fallout was completely due to a series of fatal mistakes by the top management from pursuing wrong customers to a horrible expensive acquisition.
