Challenging work, excellent coworkers, long hours

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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.

Pros

Compensation, great talented coworkers

Cons

Long hours, somewhat stressful scheduling

Standard big American company

It's a pretty standard multinational American company. The benefits are better than you get at a smaller company at the expense of feeling like a line item on a spreadsheet. They're pretty good about promoting from within. They're very good at providing a very safe work environment. My only complaint really is that they should be more willing to let some terrible people go. Sometimes I feel like it's not possible for a bad employee to get fired, which hits the morale of the rest of us that have to carry the bad ones.

Good place to learn and grow

Good place to work. Culture here is very good from management to peers. Lots of moving parts. Promotion potential is very limited needs more upward mobility.

High Demand, Low Flexibility

Achieving goals is a priority while internally, there seems to be very little care for maintaining customer satisfaction. Little to no opportunity for advancement and work/life balance is a struggle. Management structure is lean and flat so if you do not have a good relationship with your immediate manager, you're going to be in a very difficult situation.

Potential to be great, but held back by management.

I worked at Broadcom as an operator. The shifts are 12 hours and that can be difficult at times, but the extra days off are also nice. My experience with Management/Supervisor was negative. Management definitely plays favorites and the culture and opportunities at this company reflect that. Supervisors take a lot of time off and some are not around the site as much as they should be. Your raises and opportunities for advancement are dependent on your Supervisor’s personal feelings and opinions, and not your experience or qualifications. Your reward for hard work and a job well done is more work and more responsibilities, even while understaffed. There was a wide belief that Supervision/Management did not have the team’s best interest as their intention. While this may not be the case with every area/supervisor, this was my personal experience. I believe the WSD Operations department would benefit a lot from more attention being paid to Supervisors and the morale and culture of the operators on their respective teams.

Pros

Days off, Discounted snacks and meals, Consistent schedule, Job is easy to learn, Long breaks, Good benefits

Cons

Poor management, Long hours, Favoritism, Toxic work environment at times, Benefits and rewards gradually taken away

Good place to grow

They are very good at training new people and having patience with those that take more effort in preparing for perfection on the job. Direct management gives good feedback and is willing to help you grow.

Broadcom doesn’t care about its employees

Broadcom is a mediocre employer. Upper management does not care about its employees and does not support individual professional development. Although technically they have a education reimbursement benefit, (up to $10,000) such requests are not approved. It seems as if they would rather have one stagnant in their role instead of investing what is considered chump change for a multi billion company, because despite the obvious benefits that go along with increasing one’s skillset, that would mean they would have to compensate the individual accordingly which they are too cheap to want to do. The only good things they offer is 401k matching and ESPP discount on its valuable stock. There is no company culture and it’s a total drag working here. They don’t even stock the break rooms with snacks/beverages like most other Silicon Valley tech employers do, so you’re either forced to bring your own food or go to their overpriced cafeteria which is only open until like 2pm. Also, despite the fact that most employees can perform their work remotely, they have required that everyone return to the office and monitors attendance. Overall this is a shady employer that regularly does lay offs, so if you do end up working here don’t expect any job security regardless of performance.

Pros

401k matching, Espp

Cons

Doesn’t care about employees or support professional development, no snacks or other useful amenities.

Totaly business not employee oriented

No reliance on job security. You are just an asset for as long as needed. Bottom line is what drives everything. There could be interesting projects but the time pressure to deliver doesn't really leave any room to enjoy the creativity of the work. Stock is good, though right now.

The only thing that matters is the stock price

Awful culture only focused on the bottom line.. no innovation and only boring software productsNew people coming into engineering at the ICB4 and 5 level will get very nice comp packages especially RSU

Pros

good RSUs if you are new to the company, health insurance very good

Cons

no wfh even during pandemic, spreadsheets and tracking for everything, old boys club from big blue.. lots of favoritism

Worst culture

Worst work culture, wonder how managers here with no talent. This is first place seeing skill less managers. always wonder, how they became managers. may be buttered their managers. until fresh talent replace this junk, Broadcom will keep loosing creditability. Hyderabad branch is worst in politics. they got talent in how to secure their jobs with no talent. do not join this company. you will feel bad later.
