Job security is an on-going concern for engineers. Even if the division is earning or is in "black", engineers are still concerned of being laid-off. One can make more money by keeping performers and not by eliminating their meager salary in the BU's overhead. Unlike my experience with Texas Instruments, VP's in Broadcom are NOT known to push hard on cost reductions through process or methodology efficiencies, material cost reduction or yield improvements. It seems to us engineers, to meet division's P&L, what is at stake for a VP to cut costs is: project cancellation/deferral, no travel, no spending and every quarter(?)... low key RIF.
