    Pros

    Great peers Decent Salary Your time at Broadcom will look great on a resume.

    Cons

    Quite simply, Broadcom isn't concerned with Corporate Services, Facilities, or Global Real Estate employees. They care about the opinions of other departments, who possess a much greater percentage of the overall corporate headcount. But the smaller percentage of employees and contractors working in Corporate Services are simply seen as replaceable and their viewpoints are frequently met with denial. Contractors are treated as "below" employees. They are continually given the impression that if they just hang in there, they might get hired on as an employee. As a company, HR doesn’t do exit interviews for contractors, so HR has no clue why they leave. Therefore, a savvy Manager or Director will fill his department with contractor staff and HR doesn’t mind because they are afraid to address Manager and Director deficiencies. There is far too much Corporate Politics that exists. For a fortune 500 Company, employees should be able to voice their discontent about an issue and find a solution within HR without fear of being "blackballed". Protections exist as published policy, but are not practiced. Those same great peers you work with are all desperately searching for any opportunity that comes even close to their current salary, then bailing ship. You are paid just slightly above an "industry average" for your qualifications, which makes it difficult to locate another company to work for. If my husband wasn’t out of work, I would immediately quit without even thinking about it.

    Advice to Management

    HR needs to objectively and sincerely investigate why over the last six months so many employees (and contractors) have left Corporate Services, in addition to the Facilities, and Global Real Estate departments. It's not because they are paid is too low.
