    I worked at Broadcom full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Always encouraging good teamwork. People work together well and solve problems. People are professional and kind to each other.

    Cons

    Top down management and high level management is very poor. Lack of leadership and made quite a lot of strategic mistakes. The worst part is: they are not accounted for their mistakes! Even with huge damages (> $1 Billion) due to their bad decisions, they are still around to pick up pay checks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find someone who really has a vision and the will to clean up the garbage at the top.
