Dude is 68. Has plenty of $$$. When does he retire? Thoughts?
All you have to do is pretend to work and you're golden. The managers have no idea what they're doing or what you're supposed to be doing so there's nothing to worry about. Considering this place has been treating us like cr-p for several years now... — read more
Yesterday was probably the hardest day for me in more than six years of working here. Morale is too bad. I wonder if there is the anything that could help someone who works hard and loves their job boost their morale here, other than getting an offer... — read more
My office is back to 100% working in office. And I absolutely hate it. Now that I’ve gotten a taste of the wfh life, I don’t want to go back. I feel so drained and so much less motivated working in the office full time. I was more productive from... — read more
This company needs to think a little about the consequences of its way of managing. It's becoming almost impossible to complete some jobs. Something that has recently started will not be completed on time because the colleagues I am working with... — read more
Heard some folks were RIFed.
Does anyone have any true insight as to what will happen October 4th for those without the shot in the US? I have mine, but there are still a lot of senior people in my office that do not. I can't imagine them simply whacking these people, but it... — read more
Is Hock and company putting the screws to thelayoff.com? It looks like dozens of posts and replies have disappeared in the last week. If this is not a free forum then it is useless. Oh, and Hock's true view of his employees was shouted loud and... — read more
I am disappointed with Broadcom to the max. Does this company have any long term goals at all or are those at the top focused only on short term results? It seems to me that Broadcom is stuck in the past and that the leadership has completely... — read more
Broadcoms model is all about acquiring bloated old companies and screwing the hapless customers of those companies to the maximum extent possible. Since those customers can't switch off your product overnight, they end up paying BIG. Unfortunately... — read more
Dear manager, you don't have to keep trying anymore. If the goal was for me to leave this company on my own, then you've succeeded. I got the message, it was too obvious. Now you don't have to think of ways to put even more pressure on me, I gave... — read more
Maybe they think pay is reason enough for the best people to stay here, but it’s not. I know a few people who were great employees, and who agreed to a worse offer just to get out of here because they couldn’t stand the atmosphere anymore. Everyone... — read more
Why are so many people walking away at once?
Does anyone know the current severance package? I've heard rumors that it has been cut dramatically, but haven't seen anything in writing. When CA was acquired it was supposedly 40 weeks. I'm not sure if that still stands or not. I guess I'm truly... — read more
I've heard from two different sources now that we might be seeing a significant round of layoffs before the end of this month. How true is this? I'm not the kind of person to get worked up over any rumor, but when it comes from more than one source... — read more
Tech companies across the country are giving final dates for when these experimental jabs are required. You are seeing it with Google, Apple, other tech companies and other financial companies and using this delta nonsense as an excuse. There is no... — read more
Over the past few months, I’ve been constantly getting more and more work. At first I thought it was just a phase. Then I thought they will eventually realize that an employee really can't handle that much work and stop giving me more. Now I'm just... — read more
Is this one of the least transparent companies you’ve ever worked for? I have never worked for a less transparent company. I understand that the employees of the company everywhere are the last ones to learn important information, but such a... — read more
Broadcom has become one big disgrace. They laid off my colleague, who did a great job, to keep a couple of slackers enjoying superstar status. I immediately sent as many job applications as I could and I expect to leave this ridiculous company as... — read more
What was hit last week?
Is it possible that a new employee here has a better status than a hard worker who has been loyal to this company for years and who is fully engaged with his job? I have nothing against newbies, but I notice that some of them achieve something easier... — read more
rumblings that we're looking at making a move on... GME.... LMAO
I believe we will see at least 1 announcement of an acquisition in the software groups. This will be a smaller, refined company that had a rough 2020 but has the upside of consistent revenue from customers that don’t hate them, yet. This will work if... — read more

Mainframe doing so well alone why combine with es? Mass merges and big cuts coming?
Why is CEO hellbent on work from office? Does he not value Broadcom Employees? Look at other tech companies which let employees work from home. People will leave post covid if they haven’t left already.
What will happen to the company and its future when he retires?
This is a master thread about Broadcom Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
I'm notified today to be let go. I'm told Broadcom has a standard severance package, which is two week's pay for each full year of service in the company. Did anybody ever negotiate with the standard package? Do we have to give up all... — read more
Is it true that the acquisition script played out last year this time around has not gone by plan. Buying out Sym has been a disaster for HT , other than cutting costs - it’s now a sinking ship
i heard next round across the board targeted for January. With Tick-Tok worried about a recession in 2021, i'm sure he's lining things up... and actually...this may relate to the other thread speculating office closings or working remote. of... — read more
