No opinion of CEO

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.

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

    Pros

    They don't give much job to interns. And much of the job is boring, like looking for waveforms for whole day without knowing what is happening there.

    Cons

    Salary is good. They also give you relocation fees. Food at company is good. Interns also have opportunity to listen to quarterly report about the future of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the portion of the food. Increase the variety of the food. Create more interesting jobs for interns

    Pros

    *Smart people to work with.
    *Lot of good projects to work as it still operates as a R&D company

    Cons

    * Sometimes too many cooks in the kitchen slows things down
    * Politics among different groups
    * Not great on compensation

    Advice to Management

    * Make employees compensation competitive to market, otherwise good people will leave.
