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

Pros

-Smart people --- generally speaking
-
-Not bad in RSUs really but dwindling steadily

Cons

-Higher the Manager or Executive, more he/she is likely to be arrogant and pretty diabolical
-Encourages politics top to bottom
-Encourages sleeper cells of buddy clubs especially in product line marketing function
- in other words, don't mess with stupid PLM's and marketing VP
-HR likes to drag out issues and intimidate the upright
-If you download a file inadvertently, your case may be handed over to FBI (Tien Shiah "espionage" case --- google)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Get off your high horse and do the right things all the time
-communicate much better
-stand for what you claim

    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
