Current Employee - Director, Human Resources

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

Pros

Compensation generally competitive
Broadly leading edge technologies
High amounts of trust
Management team is visible and highly driven to succeed
Financial leadership has dramatically improved in the past 5 years

Cons

Difficult to transfer between business units or departments to develop skills
Insufficient focus on technical training
Educational reimbursement $ should be increased to encourage longer term development

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide incentives to management team to encourage training and development / cross BU training / internal transfers. It won't happen by magic - people don't want to let go of good people.
Don't start going into markets without wanting to win them. This is not what Broadcom's about

    I have been working at Broadcom as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nice Location to have interview. (Comfortable)
    Most interviewers are nice!

    Cons

    4 hours interview with 5 people.
    The last person is straightforward to tell me that he doesn't like my answer while I am still talking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be prepare of some debugging skill if you are applying the testing engineering, such as if customer reports the Bluetooth problem, how can we find the solution before throw to the designer?
    They gave me some puzzle questions but I feel they are not expect you to answer correctly instead they just want to know the way of your thinking. So, don't be afraid if you will not get the correct answer.
