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

    Pros

    Great pay, lots of developmental opportunities, high level of responsibility, can work autonomously and take ownership of your job and career

    Cons

    Lots of hours, lots of fire drills, no training program/sink or swim environment, highly political, high turnover, lots of approvals and process stalling makes it difficult to take action. Internal promotions are very difficult, but lateral transfers for development are encouraged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your hiring process is robust. Trust your people to do the right thing and remove all the red tape and political posturing to enable your people to be innovative and take measured risks to advance your business.
