      Pros

      Good stock option which is totally luck and good timing base to survive till that time

      Cons

      Broadcom is completely dependent of legacy employees, who hold all the project dependency and no one can survive without their wish as no project documents and hard to grab everything only through source code. The main strategy is to hire new goat to slaughter during layoffs. Hire new resources, don't gave them space to survive, and layoffs the candidate before mature its stock (yearly) and again hire new resource. It is just to make secure legacy employee jobs and stability. Management treat software professionals like a slave and work like a robot. Managers are totally dummy and non technical, non professional and even not able to realized the legacy engineers politics. Here managers are totally just blindly follow the instruction coming from USA and don't have any individual strength. HR is totally worthless, they meant only to make employees day to day life hell. like how to push software professionals to work from office even in covid crisis(where every week around 50-60 employess are infected with corona in office) , no WFH policy as such (it is just to make a fool to external new candidate) Yes good stock option is their but it is just a carrot hanging on the pole in front of goat, just as a part of greedy algorithm to impress new jonnie and which he/she will never get. It is not my individual thoughts, just think 100 times before joining to Broadcom, because once you trapped in this situation, it is really tough to come out from them and find another similar level job.

      Worst company to work for.

      Pros

      There is only one Pros : good number of shares but only if your job is secure.

      Cons

      There is list which new people should consider before joining 1. Worst work environment. : In pandemic people were forced to come to office. 2. Worst front line managers : If you are not aligned to dump manger then your job is at risk even if your are doing great. 3. Worst top management : They don't care about employee. Every 6 months firing happens and pressure is built on remaining people for work. Compensation decisions are highly dependent on management and individual performance is neglected many times. 4. CEO has his own way of thinking (people should be in office in Pandemic as WFH is not effective :) ) 5. Worst HR : HRs are just puppets and mostly find ways to harass employee based on policy decision by top management. 6. Worst job security : you don't know when your job will be at risk. Software group people are at more risk as many acquisition are happening. So be careful if plan to join any software group (CA, Symantec ) Company is paying good amount of shares and consider you as high RSUed slaves.
