I have been working at Broadcom full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Company is doing very well in the marketplace, creating many opportunities to keep customers happy. Very broad IP and wildly successful in may technical areas. Lots of highly technical expertise home grown in the company!

Cons

Training is not so good. Long history and a large code base creates a burden to ramp up and be productive and successful on projects quickly.

Advice to Management

Benefits (especially medical) are costly and not competitive with industry peers.

    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 Management

    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
