Approves of CEO

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.
