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

Pros

company name recognition in the industry

Cons

-a lot of old timers, having like retired jobs
-very limited upward promotions
-very hard to move into different groups
-stock has negative sentiment in investment, the trend is always in the downside, up and down stock movement, like gambling. Cannot be too greedy, or you end up missing a selling point
-a lot of politics, indian engineers protect each other; chinese engineers beat each other, white people still dominate the top mgmt

    Pros

    Many talented and friendly engineers to work with and learn from.

    Cons

    Engineers are expected to work lots of overtime to "do the impossible". The "unlimited vacation" policy sounds great but actually have to get VP approval for anything over 10 days duration, which means very few people can take long vacations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set more reasonable deadlines to prevent engineer burnout. Go back to the previous vacation policy of a set number of weeks vacation depending on number of years worked.
