    I worked at Broadcom full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great team, everyone was knowledgeable, your opinions were valued despite the level, got hands-on experience on a wide domain

    Cons

    Very hectic schedules, bad work-life balance, pay was much lesser than the work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can provide a little more time to groom from the time you are out of grad school to the time you actually start work, that is, provide more training

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Broadcom.

    Interview Details

    Written round followed by Technical interview for 2 hours and a 1 hour HR interview with the director. Technical round mainly involved questions that I had not answered during the exam and also from my resume on what projects I did. In the next round, the director briefed me on the opportunities available and the kind of work done at Beceem. Beceem was later acquired by Broadcom by the time I joined
