    lack of process

    San Diego, CA

    Prosone can be involved in many different topics and is not assigned forever to the same tasks

    Great place to work but...

    Senior Staff Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsBroadcom is an engineering focused company with very little frivolous management layers in the organization. You get to work on some of the most cutting edge technology and shape the future. Broadcom has some of the best engineering talent and people tend to stick around for along time.

    ConsCompensation. It is way below the industry norms. Management, for some reason, seems completely unconcerned about this issue. The vacation policy sucks. Because people to stick around for a long time, there is very little upward mobility for the relatively new hires.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
