    I have been working at Broadcom full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The calibre of engineers is high. You can work with and learn from some good people. The work is interesting and sometimes demanding. Opportunities for promotion and growing responsibility exist, but can be limited in some teams. High performance is well rewarded. The office environment is friendly, casual and flexible.

    Cons

    No formal graduate training plan. Limited training or support if you can't match the capabilities of existing staff - depending on your manager it can be a sink or swim workspace. HR policies are inflexible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower and mid-level management are well regarded. The board have appeared to lack a consistent strategy.
