Pros

Great work environment, benefits and people. You can have a great lifestyle as an engineer here

Cons

Career growth is limited in some groups. Job satisfaction was not very high. Also salaries are going down

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You are losing a lot of talent because of politics and also because of reducing salaries which can hurt Broadcom in the long run

    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
