I have been working at Broadcom full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

* if u have no job and get an offer from this company, this is a good stepping stone while u learn
* I think this is still a stable company (no layoff yet)

Cons

* no vacation (unlimited vacation in management term) = 1/2 - 3/4 months of money less than other companies for many employees
* No raise for promotion (neither stock or salary) ....if I knew this earlier, I would not like a promotion!
* almost no matching on 401k (1.2%? don't remember the smaller fraction!!)
* fire-fighter style with no money rewards!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I am sure most employees are losing morale as hard work is never compensated
