I have been working at Broadcom full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Cons

- HR policies need to be more formalized and driven
- Company needs to move from "startup" mode as it grows
- Company needs to invest in community relationships and charity

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Communication to lower levels needs to be through formal means, rather than cofee-machine talk
- Invest in development processes and soft skills development
- Invest in Community, outside of Science & Technology. e.g. reward volunteering, reading to kids
