    I have been working at Broadcom full-time

    Pros

    - RSU options are irresistible - Very good Bonus percentage - Stable Company; not much debt and constant revenue - Good company policies such as Home loan interest re-imbursement, car loan interest reimbursement etc.

    Cons

    - Bad location; people in other parts of Bengaluru will have tough time reaching Electronic-city; especially during raining time - Bad Work From Home policy; our division had strict rule on WFH policies

    Advice to Management

    Be lenient on WFH policies as the location is very far for many people
