I have been working at Broadcom full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

keep growing and hiring more engineers. strong on mobile industry especially WiFi, BT, GPS combo as well as cable modem and network solution. Mobile baseband business has grown so quickly for several years too.

Cons

Working environment is really customer oriented , which means it's really hard sometimes but it can be one of strong point of business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

are we keeping Pareto rule 80% vs 20%?
not a little number of engineers are less competitive but they are never got out. Many people knows the famous personnel in many departments.

    I worked at Broadcom full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They had fairly good compensation but dwindling steadily...nice Irvine campus

    Cons

    They are so paranoid and sinister they sent their company attorney to rather insidiously trap me (pretending he was PR) into admitting I may have used company resources to write my Switching A-Z Power book -- very deceptive and tricky HR and an overall culture that does the opposite of encouraging growth for anyone really.. They think they own you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to cut back on your testosterone (and malice) when dealing with huge proven contributors, in particular --- just because they don't suck up to you and say you are God, doesn't mean they have "poor communication skills"...perhaps you do

    Pros

    Runs like a small start-up company, great plan in ESPP and RSU, salary is above average in the industry

    Cons

    Position title is in inflation; more senior principal engineer than principal.
