Interesting fast paced work, not always current technology

Senior Principal Scientist (Former Employee)
Santa Clara, CA

ProsBroadcom has a huge breadth of technology. They do everything from tiny bluetooth to massive networking chips. There's a lot of interesting stuff going on. The folks tend to be smart and competent. It's great to see products you've worked on in the store.

ConsI found personal advancement slow there. Because there's so much legacy product in a lot of the company, I also was working on not-quite-current technology. Since I've been laid off, it's a liability that I wasn't working on the latest methodology in my field.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork harder on moving methodology to the latest. It's a hard balance between legacy stuff that works and jumping into newer technologies, but once they're adopted industry-wide there's no excuse not to.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
