Current Employee - Principal Engineer in San Diego, CA

I have been working at Broadcom full-time (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

    Pros

    Like the team. People are very helpful.

    Cons

    They do not compensate you well. Atleast in the library group. No appreciation. Work pressure is very high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please improve way to compensate its employees. Reduce work pressure.
