    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Broadcom (Sunnyvale, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    They interviewed me and then never bothered to email or call me either way. I did not appreciate that. I made alot of effort to prepare and attend interview and traveled far to attend it, and felt the interview went well, so to not have heard from them in ANY way whatsoever afterwards was a mild annoyance.

    Test Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Broadcom (Sunnyvale, CA).

    Interview

    The interview was in 2004 when the Broadcom culture was much better. It was more of a panel interview, and a "get to know" your personality and skills. A human factor was important. I can imagine the new hires may be only knowledge based, and not so much with having a good personality.

    Interview Questions

    • I was given a riddle to solve by one of the Senior Engineers. He had me stomped for quite some time.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Broadcom will probably try to low ball you at first, so try to negotiate. Especially if you are currently employed.
