    I have been working at Broadcom full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    challenging work
    good rsu
    Really enjoy the majority of my coworkers. Most are humble, friendly, and skilled. They don't over exert you but challenge you to bring your best. Lots of people to learn from, and you're not micromanaged.

    Cons

    No work life balance
    cost cutting
    Not everyone gets good bonuses. I think the way they assess people could be better. Could have some more events, but usually related to your specific group

    Advice to Management

    spend more on R&D
    Improve assement of contributions, and hold onto good people. Share the birthday peoples names on their birthday (at least if they are ok with it)! Its nice having celebration but weird that we don't know who for.
