    I worked at Broadcom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1: Stable, large company
    2: Above-average total compensation.
    3: Company doing good in all business lines.
    4: Good office facilities, location, and cafe.
    5: Good travel benefits if your job involves travel.

    Cons

    1: Be prepared to work like a dog with long hours and weekends.
    2: Work on 2-3 projects simultaneously.
    3: As is common to all semi industry, lots of work are tedious and purely "mechanic", not very intellectual.
    4: Compensation & benefits are decreasing fast year by year. It was good a few years ago, but now
        it is only about average, and is still dropping every year.
    5: High peer pressure, and mean, "blood-suckingr" boss.
    6: Stay away from any customer-facing role. The company is very humble to the customers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting employee's benefits. Stop the most unpopular PTO policy.
