    Operators Are Not Valued

    Nov 17, 2022 - Anonymous Employee in Fort Collins, CO

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    * Medical, Vision, and Dental benefits are great. * Hours are nice if you can handle 12 hour shifts (3 day week, then 4 day week, repeat).

    Cons

    * Long-term employees are not appreciated. The pay is good when you start, but the raises are minimal (sometimes as low as 3%). The amount of people that quit is high, so they hire on at a higher pay each year. So, there are people who've worked here for years working for dollars less than new employees. * Management is varied, and highly based on favoritism. One supervisor will be completely hands off. Another supervisor will control every aspect of what their team does and when, and seem to enjoy the power trip. There's also in-between situations. It is luck of the draw. * You'll have opportunities for advancement, but expect more work and not more pay. Over the years they've made most options 'lateral moves'. No pay, and no training. You've either gotten your training from a previous company, or you know enough higher ups to get the position. * They have one HR person. They shuffle troublemakers around. Hope they don't get put in your area.

    ok in tech company

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    stable job, my BU hasn't layoff anyone in 10+ years, good stock refreshes. ok work-life balance. nice people

    Cons

    base salary is too low compared to other soc companies. promotions are slow, with minimal salary gain. no reviews by peers or yourself, everything is based on your manager like you or not. ok work-life balance, but been asked by the manager to stay in the office for 8 hours before my promotion. most of the people here are 40+/50+ and have been here for 10+ yers. if you are in the early stage of your career, hard to fit in.

    Great People, but Way Too Few for Work Demands

    Sep 23, 2022 - Principal Technical Writer in San Jose, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    * Great people * Interesting products * Constant process innovation * Good benefits

    Cons

    * Management could care less that they are working people to exhaustion * No celebrations, even after huge accomplishments/releases * Little or no positive feedback from scrum team / product mgt leadership * Financial carrot of annual bonus is good, but not guaranteed. Pray that the company and your business area do well. Bonus + the low pay = what I can get elsewhere without the other cons.

    Broadcom is a no nonsense company

    Sep 22, 2022 - Senior Principal Customer Success Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    They are very efficient and just do. If what they are doing is not working, they quickly change direction and do something else. They live by the Yoda way, "Try not. Do… or do not. There is no try."

    Cons

    Not a lot of fringe benefits. The people I work with are great, but the company does have a bit of a cold feeling. (It is a pro, but adds to the cold feeling) They really do retain the best talent though. I am not sure how they evaluate us, but they know who to keep and who to let go.

    Decent pay but dead end for your career, toxic culture

    Sep 24, 2022 - Line Technician in Fort Collins, CO
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Decent pay and decent benefits. - Handed the COVID-19 pandemic very well with their employees in mind. - Operations team is fantastic.

    Cons

    - Certain departments (like Industrial Engineering, Change Management, Project Management) have a free pass to be rude and treat the operations team with disrespect. Management is aware of the issue and doesn't seem to care. - Company doesn't value nurturing their employees. If you want to learn, you have to do it yourself. Don't expect any help from anyone in the company and expect people to be annoyed when you try and learn new skills. - Overall, culture in the Fort Collins branch is a wash. Everyone is trying to push each other down instead of helping each-other succeed.
