I worked at Broadcom full-time

Pros

Exciting field. Lot of smart people. Nice location and facilities.

Cons

Extremely political and hierarchical. Plenty of internal drama and backstabbing. Work load is ridiculously heavy and treatment of employees is way below par. New employees are "hazed" and set up to fail in order to prove themselves. Organization is really top-heavy. Everybody is a director of something it seems. HR doesn't care about you as a person unless there is a possibility BRCM may get sued.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Care about your employees!

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