Broadcom Employee
in San Jose, CA

"I worked for Broadcom for 12 years and held positions in the business unit and sales. It is definitely the best environment for work and I can't say I would ever go back there. The stock has always remained stagnant for the period I was there and management is not helping getting it up. Pass if you can."

"GDR is a strong and positive company. Broadcom is struggling "wanna be" company that thinks they are "awesome" but are not! Broadcom is equivalent to McDonald's or Burger King while their direct competition, Qualcomm is more like Morton's Steak house or Ruth Chris steak house."

Broadcom Employee
in San Diego, CA

"It is a good company to work for with a slightly above average work-life balance. The employees were given the freedom to make decisions and encouraged to find optimizations. The company did not have a good strategy to compete in the cellular base band space, could not come up with the right roadmap and ended up making erratic decisions. The executive management did not have the vision which resulted in instability for the BU and thus changing of the guards way too often."

Intern
in Sunnyvale, CA

"The job was fun for the first 2 months and there was a big learning curve initially. But the work become repetitive over a period of time and the management wasn't very keen about meeting interns' expectations. Training was given occasionally, but wasn't well structured and organized. The LTE division that I worked for was on a downward slope and was closed down a few months after I completed my internship."
