Principal Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Germantown, MD – October 3, 2017
Broadcom is a challenging place to work where much is expected from you, but the compensation makes it worth it. One is expected to put in a considerable number of extra hours, but it is recognized when the customer is pleased by the work of an individual. I was able to hone skills in new areas as well as apply my many years of experience to the tasks given. The best part of the job was working with those around me in the office, all top notch professionals.
Litho Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) – Fort Collins, CO – December 18, 2018
I worked with good people. AWS work schedule was not conducive for family but it afforded 3 and 4 day weekends. 12 hour shifts are tough especially nights. Management was fair. Learned a lot over my career.
Engineer Principal (Former Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – October 16, 2018
Not a goal oriented but a Typical Profit based company with no long term vision. No job security even for best performers. It is a name sake US based company moving verticals to offshore just based on zero threshold. No centralized goals for the company to move on. It is mostly based on the immediate supervisor dictatorship. Not a great place to work.

Executive Assistant to VP of Operations (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – October 5, 2018
If I could experience this type of work environment and culture all over again then I would do it in a second. Everyone there was so dedicated and loved what they did. When I first started there I was a receptionist which I loved. Being the first impression of the company such a great fit for me. At the end of my time there I assisted the V.P. of Operations. All duties within my career at Broadcom were truly valued and I learned so much from all my years there.
Wafer Thinning Technician (Former Employee) – Breinigsville, PA – September 1, 2018
Place use to be real great to work at until new management made some decisions that’s caused the workflow to be very slow. Several Supervisors suck up to get ahead . Hard work is not recognized only sucking up. Management in general is a mess no communication and rules are made up after events occur. Most perks that we had are gone and not coming back. Promises of moving up in the company are never really considered .
Relaxed environment, good pay
Management, No incentives for working above and beyond .
Sr. Project Manager (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – August 19, 2018
My experience was prior to the Avago acquisition, things have likely changed since then. Recommend looking into the CEO's currently take on IT before committing to this company. Entire IT budget was slashed by 50% with multiple layoffs which was major reason I left this company.
Sr. IT Engineer (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – August 17, 2018
Broadcom was a very good place to work. IT Management was great. I liked remote work and work-life balance environment. However, I am not sure how much it has been changed since Avago took over the company.
R&D Technician (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – August 7, 2018
Overall the Broadcome R&D proto lab offers a wide veriety of equipment and processes to become better acquainted with. The company challenges you to learn what they do and to build on it with what you learn.
lunch on campus and good team.
at times it could be a little demanding on short notice.
Poor management leaves you unmotivated and guessing
Senior IC Design Engineer (Current Employee) – Broomfield, CO – August 6, 2018
There is only one good thing about Broadcom, your compensation.
Otherwise, Broadcom is a poor place to work. Broadcom does not invest in new technologies. They make money on old technologies. So you will find yourself working on dinosaur projects that are too heavy and clumsy to change. Managers don't communicate. Managers don't motivate or compliment. It's a demoralizing place to work.
