      Pros

      Broadcom Canada has a very relaxing working environment. Some people work 4 hours a day, some work 10+ hours a day - it totally depends on your workload.

      Cons

      There is no lunch provided at Broadcom Canada. The cafe downstairs is too bad. Sometimes people have to drive 15+ minutes to have lunch.

      Pros

      The company prospects are very good. Management always informs employees of things that are going on within the company. Nothing is held a secret. There is an open forum where employees and management can discuss anything. Employee's opinions and suggestions are all considered. Broadcom prides itself with being generous with stock compensation, and seeing as how the stock is going up, everyone is motivated to work. There are also free drinks and food all the time so this helps quite a bit in liking the work environment.

      Cons

      Since Richmond is a remote site, there is less budget for social activities (although I don't know if all the other sites and headquarter have the same issue.
