I have been working at Broadcom full-time (more than an year)

Pros

This review is for the Analog Group @ broadcom
1. Opportunity to work on a variety of circuit blocks - ADCs, DACs, filters, power management ICs within the same group.
2. Good interaction with system guys
3. Latest CAD tools and awesome support
4. Highly risk tolerant -- size up engineers and give them opportunity to shine without them having to put in years of grunt work.

Cons

1. Aggressive schedules - designer expected to do layout as well.
2. No sense of chip ownership since group delivers only IP.
3. Group operates like a service group and doesn;t share in the profits of the final product. (the system team does).
4. No ethnic diveristy in group - 90% asian.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please improve share holder value. The RSU bonus you give us is a pittance.

    Pros

    varieties of product port-polio and some free sodas if you call that a pro.

    Cons

    In my life, I have never see that software is released to customers without being tested. They are just making reference software that is only suitable for a demo and far from the production. People are playing dirty and disgusting political games and they work for boss, not for company. Some people are lying to avoid their faults and misbehavior of software's running. I'm ashamed that I was an employee of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a basic concept of software engineering process and quality assurance. Be more honest with employees, respect them and listen to their opinion with open mind.
    Give opportunities of training and work assignments to employees fairly.
