"I have great pride to say that I've worked with a multicultural company like Broadcom Corporation, who is a global leader and innovator in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications."

"Broadcom mishandled cellular ICs. Engineering management is highly biased and un-objective."

"Stock price of $18 per share this time next year and looking for a new CEO."

What do you like about working at Broadcom?

"Good communication with scientists and engineers. Many very dedicated and hardworking."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"If you come from a strong SW background - make sure you understand. What they have now is like building a new house on a lot with an existing tear down. You're going to be getting dirty before doing any real building."

What don't you like about working at Broadcom?

"This company grew up designing great HW products. The new standards for wireless end up requiring more SW - a lot more. The senior management - many with great engineering backgrounds - simply do not have the training or experience to develop larger scale embedded systems. When Intel shows up with the Armada of competitive products built into their SOCs - it will all be over but the shouting."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Hire strong SW people and get out of the way."

"Life as usual and at times frustrating."

What do you like about working at Broadcom?

"Facilities and IT support are good. A lot to learn (on your own), if you have time."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Expect the unexpected. Unless you have someone looking out for your interests, sitting on top of your head, don't expect much advancement."

What don't you like about working at Broadcom?

"Too much politics; advancement is not based on meritocracy; guidelines for management is too loose that it attracts abuses in every phase. Management could, almost, do whatever they like."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Police managers with a tighter fist to ascertain that their behavior is in line with company interests, and not self-serving."
