    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

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
