Great Company with driven leadership team, trying its hardest to be the best

Director, Human Resources (Current Employee)

I have been working at Broadcom full-time for more than 10 years

ProsCompensation generally competitive
Broadly leading edge technologies
High amounts of trust
Management team is visible and highly driven to succeed
Financial leadership has dramatically improved in the past 5 years

ConsDifficult to transfer between business units or departments to develop skills
Insufficient focus on technical training
Educational reimbursement $ should be increased to encourage longer term development

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide incentives to management team to encourage training and development / cross BU training / internal transfers. It won't happen by magic - people don't want to let go of good people.
Don't start going into markets without wanting to win them. This is not what Broadcom's about

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