Current Employee - Director, Human Resources

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

Recommends
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO
