I have been working at Broadcom as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

They are really advanced in the WLAN business and apparently they are a group of very experienced people. A good environment to improve yourself.

Cons

They hired qutie a few interns during the period I was there. You need to be very active to seek out people to get started on your work.

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

    Pros

    Good execution in top management and good corporate efficiency overall, especially on a low program budget. Showy inflated position titles but not necessarily also compensations.

    Cons

    Low standard in line management. Manipulative, verbally abusive, trick-playing, and over-powering practice of team management seen with an infamous individual manager. Cheap, harsh, and cow-boy style of management which fooled or took advantage of employees. Managers happily took away innovative, diligent, and quality contributions often at employee's extra sacrifice of personal time and life, but hesitated to compensate back, eating free lunch with selfish personal career advancement while breaking fundamental trust with employees. Denied mistreatment to last minute, and for years took no meaningful action to recognize employees until employee resignation. Precious years of career unfortunately spent with such manager/employer.
