    Pros

    I worked in Bangalore office for more than 5 years.
    Many teams has talent pool for end-to-end chip development (Chip,Soc,firmware,software, except RF), so you will good exposure.
    For the size of the company, politics is definitely less.
    Initially use to pay very well, then came down and improved later after avago acquisition.

    Cons

    Chose the correct team as quite a few teams are difficult place to work (no work life balance, lots of internal bickering)
    Information sharing is very poor and difficult to gather info
    Career growth will be slow for most except a few well connected
    Hire and fire is very common so be mindful right from the day of joining

    Connect and share to employee more often

    Pros

    Brand name is good and free lunch. Plus late evening and early morning free eating with Amex card in campus food court.
