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!

    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
