I have been working at Broadcom full-time (More than a year)

Pros

This review is for the Analog Group @ broadcom
1. Opportunity to work on a variety of circuit blocks - ADCs, DACs, filters, power management ICs within the same group.
2. Good interaction with system guys
3. Latest CAD tools and awesome support
4. Highly risk tolerant -- size up engineers and give them opportunity to shine without them having to put in years of grunt work.

Cons

1. Aggressive schedules - designer expected to do layout as well.
2. No sense of chip ownership since group delivers only IP.
3. Group operates like a service group and doesn;t share in the profits of the final product. (the system team does).
4. No ethnic diveristy in group - 90% asian.

Advice to Management

Please improve share holder value. The RSU bonus you give us is a pittance.
