    Pros

    Pay scale is good including stocks. Adopting new technologies quickly.

    Cons

    Forcing to come office in the pandemic situation even though work is getting done from home. No work life balance. Aggressive timelines. Not at all employee friendly. Always concentrate on cost cutting by using open source products. No long term growth. Layoff every year.

    I have been working at Broadcom full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Only pro is the RSU. I have given 2 stars for RSUs alone, all other things you can consider as 0 stars

    Cons

    Even during COVID-19 pandemic the company is mandating us to come to office. There is no decision making ability given to the managers till the GM level. The CEO takes the call that 50% of employees should come to office. That's it, even if you have a 10 days old baby in your house you are not given exemption; instead, they are asking us to wear mask inside the house so that your baby wont catch COVID. No humanity at all. Most unprofessional and most unethical company on this planet. This is a new digital era where software engineers can work from home and be more productive, but this company never listens to you. They have made mandate that you should come and work in the company premises even though you are able to complete 100% of work assigned to you at home. Double standards: One way they are saying that you are more productive at home, but still come to office and get COVID. Most frequent layoffs is another added worry. You will never know when you are going to loose your job. There are situations where complete Business Unit is shutdown/sold off to another company. There are lot more cons, but the attitude of the company towards the employees during COVID19 is the worst one. Definitely think before you accept offer from this company.

    Pros

    Stock is all this org has as to offer to its employees.

    Cons

    1. Firing in every 3 months 2. Not Employee friendly at all 3. No team building activities 4. Can make you work on weekends also The worst part is they will make work day and night and praise for your hard work and the other you can get a termination letter. If a newly launched product doesn't perform instead of changing management ppl they will fire developers.
