Current Employee - Director, Human Resources

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

Pros

Compensation 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

Cons

Difficult 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 ManagementAdvice

Provide 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

Recommends
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

    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 ManagementAdvice

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