    I have been working at Broadcom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good overall culture. Scott McGregor has great vision and the company has a good roadmap.

    Cons

    More senior employees do not feel respected and valued. Seems like the team has high turnovers (due to better opportunities elsewhere) and senior members being replaced with more and more junior (thus cheaper) engineers. Vacation policy (no longer accumulation based) is just pure wrong. Compensation is unfair (under market value especially for senior people). A lot of work but no reward (which leads to lack of motivation and turnovers).

    Advice to Management

    Instead of making expensive acquisitions overseas (especially those that make no sense) and pleasing shareholders, spend the money on motivating and retaining the senior employees.
