One of the best company to work for!!
System Engineering Intern (Former Employee), Richmond, BCJuly 26, 2012
I did my co-op at Broadcom for 8 months as a system engineer intern in the QA group and I couldnt be more happier for all the awesome things I learnt there along with the constant mentorship of my seniors. A fully equipped Gym adds to the perks and incentives. I miss working at Broadcom.

Management gone bad
Operations Specialist (Former Employee), Matawan, NJOctober 21, 2014
Pros: very consistent work schedule
Cons: multiple layoffs and no job growth
The most enjoyable part of my job was the daily interaction with people. Co-workers made the environment more pleasant. My job at Broadcom was basically to ensure the office was running as effective and efficient as possible. What made it difficult was the different directions that management was going without any overall outcome.

Good Work life Balance
WLAN Software Application Engineer (Current Employee), Sunnyvale, CAOctober 17, 2014
I had good experience working for Broadcom. The work is quite technical and the employees now what they are doing and helped me to get technically sound. Good work life balance.
Full time conversion rate from an intern is poor.

Company's decision are based on stock price rather than proper evalauation
Director, Mobile Platform Services (Former Employee), San Diego, CAOctober 8, 2014
Pros: good work life balance, good work environment, freedom to implement their ideas
Cons: leadership lacks vision, decisions are hasty and not calculated
The company provides a good work life balance and good work environment for it's employees. Employees usually get a lot of freedom to implement their ideas and thoughts. Not too much workplace politics and engineers are usually busy with projects to work on.
Leadership lacks vision. Decisions are hasty like the continuous change in leadership for the – more... mobile platform group which contributed to it's demise. Company' acquired LTE assets and in less than year of that acquisition, company decided to wind-down that business. The LTE assets were acquired to bring back the stock price that had tumbled more than 20%. The company does not value it's employees like it should and the upper management instead of taking the blame for bad decisions seems to pass on the blame downwards. – less

Good benefits and salary for hard work and tight schedules
Hardware Design Engineer (Former Employee), Irvine, CAOctober 1, 2014
The salary and benefits packages are very good. The work is challenging and there is always more to do. Schedules are tight and most projects and teams are under-staffed with good engineers. They do make good products.

Staff I System Test Engineer (Current Employee), Irvine, CAAugust 22, 2014
I have been working at Broadcom for 3 years and it was a good experience working there. However, they decided to shut down the baseband business unit so that I and thousands of employees lost our jobs in 2014.
