Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Broadcom as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Flexible hours as long as I get the job done

Cons

Compared to testing, those working as designers have much higher pressure and tighter deadlines, and more stress. My situation was ideal, but probably not too much career opportunities

Advice to Management

I had a good manager, can't complain

    Pros

    Does the following sound like you?

      * Like writing code in a fast pace, yet laid back atmosphere

      * Understand intuitively that software process is over-rated

      * Appreciate that the very best way to do unit testing is during system integration.

       *Still learning programming but believe that any language invented after C is will never
         work and is unnecessary.

       *Think its awesome that so many of your colleges are hardware engineers - trying their
        hand at writing product code.

    Cons

    Broadcom is a hardware company - that now finds itself with a large and growing software problem.
    If you know software then you know that building a software system with 200K lines of code is much much
    different than building 20 systems that are 10K lines each. It's like trying to build a modern sky scraper
    when you've only built garden sheds.

    Advice to Management

    Willful ignorance the of the software problems faced by Broadcom. That is the fundamental problem.
