    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Broadcom full-time

    Pros

    This is Avery large organization with good benefits and generous RSU grants. Management under Avago provided RSUs to all employees regardless of level.

    Cons

    BUs are very separate and focus is on maintaining MBOs assigned to each BU. Every BU has a revenue and expense metric that has to be met. Business groups that are not deemed 'sustainable' are quickly shut down.

    Advice to Management

    No advice for management. The current CEO is pretty clear in his expectations for each group and what the end result will be if expectations are not met.
