Approves of CEO

I have been working at Broadcom full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

company name recognition in the industry

Cons

-a lot of old timers, having like retired jobs
-very limited upward promotions
-very hard to move into different groups
-stock has negative sentiment in investment, the trend is always in the downside, up and down stock movement, like gambling. Cannot be too greedy, or you end up missing a selling point
-a lot of politics, indian engineers protect each other; chinese engineers beat each other, white people still dominate the top mgmt

    I worked at Broadcom full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Help Desk services is second to none, IT services are very efficient but sometimes it is difficult to navigate gazillions of web pages. Compensation is OK.

    Cons

    Little cohesiveness/collaboration, "each men for himself mentality" with few exceptions. People shuffle down hallways with eyes downcast, don't say "Hi". General atmosphere is outright depressing.

    Advice to Management

    Think less about climbing corporate ladder, more about inspiring your reports. Which is not the same as feeding them "business porn".
