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

    Pros

    Broadcom is an engineering focused company with very little frivolous management layers in the organization. You get to work on some of the most cutting edge technology and shape the future. Broadcom has some of the best engineering talent and people tend to stick around for along time.

    Cons

    Compensation. It is way below the industry norms. Management, for some reason, seems completely unconcerned about this issue. The vacation policy sucks. Because people to stick around for a long time, there is very little upward mobility for the relatively new hires.
