    I have been working at Broadcom full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    broad exposure to a variety of industry task, which normally you don't get at large/mature company. So you have opportunity to explore different things and decide what you'd like to dive in depth further.

    Cons

    Fast working pace. Require work during weekend during project crunch time. Think it twice if you don't expect work overtime frequently.

    Advice to Management

    Usually tech company has pretty "chaotic" management to allow flexibility, however there are things can be done here in Broadcom to further improve the resource allocation for higher efficiency.

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

    Pros

    - it is a stable job

    Cons

    -When I ask to recommend a friend of mine into the group manager tells me that we are on a hiring "Freeze" and weeks later we hire more people and they are all related to the managers.
    - Managers tell me that vacation is not a benefit but a privilege.
    - Vacation takes months to be approved, vacation emails gets ignored even when they have company phones to check emails regularly.
    - Procedures are made on the spot. When I try to take a 2 week vacation manager tells me I need to put in the request 6m-1y in advance, when I did just that manager tells me my request is too long from now and wont approve.
    - Favors on top of favors on family related employees.
    - its not about skills but more about who you know and who you are related to.

    Advice to Management

    Fairness goes along way, quit favoring and bringing people you know and are related to into the group, it makes it others work harder because you favor your buddies
