I have been working at Broadcom full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Company is doing very well in the marketplace, creating many opportunities to keep customers happy. Very broad IP and wildly successful in may technical areas. Lots of highly technical expertise home grown in the company!

Cons

Training is not so good. Long history and a large code base creates a burden to ramp up and be productive and successful on projects quickly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Benefits (especially medical) are costly and not competitive with industry peers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    are we keeping Pareto rule 80% vs 20%?
    not a little number of engineers are less competitive but they are never got out. Many people knows the famous personnel in many departments.
