      Sales at Broadcom

      Aug 5, 2021 - Account Manager in San Francisco, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There are multiple divisions that make up the valuation of the company and stock price. This dilutes the performance of any one division causing the stock price to take a hit. That said, Broadcom is about valuation and return on investment to their shareholders. They are a chip manufacturer in the end with a bunch of other divisions to help bring in revenue to support the overall growth of the company.

      Cons

      Very difficult to be in a sales roles and advocate for your customer. Broadcom is only interested in getting revenue out of existing contracts with little to no value add for YoY increases in renewal rates. They acquire companies for the revenue - not to be a thought leader. If you work for them just know it's about the stock and not what you are selling. Your personal brand with your customers will take a hit if you work for Broadcom. Comp plan will hold back earned / at risk pay until year end regardless of exceeding performance throughout the year.

      Great for schedule and benefits

      Jul 15, 2021 - Technical Trainer in Fort Collins, CO
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Scheduling is good depending on your lifestyle Benefits were great, are still good but getting more expensive. Some of the people are good to work with and learn from.

      Cons

      The rest of the people suck to work with and the good ol' boys club is alive and well. The pay sucks unless you are an engineer. People actually leave for 2 years and come back so they can make market value for their job. Raises are stingy and bonuses are hard to come by most years. The company struggles with accountability everywhere and HR is practically non-existent.
