Great company, but in decline

I worked at Broadcom full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Probably the best large semiconductor company culture. Very "can-do", focused on results, light on bureaucracy for its size.

Cons

It gets worse every year: with growth it becomes more political, more bureaucratic, less the exceptional company it used to be.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Decentralize, as centralization is harming incentives and results. Some much of the company has little direct reward from their business results.

Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Broadcom as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, and mentors/managers are willing to sit down and teach you. My manager was always willing to help me out when I was in a bind.

    Cons

    age range of employees is much older than I would have liked. Most interns are masters students. They are working on making their intern program more social.
