The longer you stay the more you fall behind. I was a longer term employee so I was really far behind. When I left for another company my comp increased 2.5x. That's not a good thing because it shows you how much money I've lost by not changing jobs... — read more
A friend found a job with better pay (a 15 percent increase) and when he gave his notice they drilled him on why he was leaving and offered to match the new pay. I've never heard of that happening before. He didn't accept, of course, but he was happy... — read more
Rumor is Symantec division gets hammered after the holidays. Can anybody confirm if this is true?
Half my f team makes more than I do. I came from the CA acquisition...I am bringing in new people that make much more than me. More than half of directs for a fraction of the f work. I was at least 20% under then without knowing and now it's even... — read more
This thread is for info about potential Broadcom layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
In software, ESD people never go in the office and they're fine. Mainframe (which actually makes money)... they are all tracking people with badges and scary spreadsheets. It's the craziest thing I've ever seen! Are other franchises loose with WFH... — read more
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
Sometimes it’s funny how some pretend to be much busier than they really are, but that seems to be the most effective strategy if you don’t want to be overwhelmed with a huge amount of work in this company. That’s a lesson I learned too late here. — read more
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
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
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
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
Heard some folks were RIFed.
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
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
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
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
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
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
Why are so many people walking away at once?
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
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
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
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
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
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 this a sign of the state of Symantec/CA and layoffs to come? https://community.broadcom.com/viewdocument/community-enhancements-road-map-it Enterprise Software and Symantec Enterprise Security are no longer accepting Ideas via the Community... — read more
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.
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?
This is a master thread about Broadcom Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
