    A lot of "dead weight."

    I have been working at Broadcom

    Pros

    Looks good on resume.
    Perks: free beverages, on-site cafeteria, gyms, basketball court, volleyball courts

    Cons

    This isn't one of the hardest-working companies I've ever come across. I believe that the same amount of work could be done with a lot less employees. One out of three employees is "dead weight" to me... and that is being generous!

    Interns are dispensable; Broadcom lets a lot of interns go once they are finished with school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know you want to be nice and employ as many people as possible, but by doing that you are costing the company a lot of money. I would not be happy about that if I were a stockholder of Brcm.

    Downsize.
