Next round of RSU !!!!

RSU, babe! Broadcom has to distribute the RSU until 15/12. So, until 15/12 Strategic people will receive the contract and RSU and for Enterprise Santa Hock will give us a temporary contract to work more 6 months in this mess.

Don't wait for the contract!

Screw the contract! Update your profile on LinkedIn and find a new job! Do you really think that managers are waiting for the contract? No one is waiting, the ship is sinking!

Good Read. Upgrade yourself.

That's a strategy even when you have a secured job , you can have a nice job and still losing skills. To not lose skills you need to do something that you love not something you are obliged to do. Most of our IT guys working at Symantec when you... —  read more

Heartless Management! Do you agree?

Nonsense, there isn't paradise! But Normal companies don't do what Broadcom and Symantec did to their employees. This is terrorism and pure lack of management. They don't know what to do!

Symantec RemainCo HR

The most inept , incompetent and clumsy HR team. Whoever is left behind are so clueless about everything . Ask them anything one standard reply ! It’s becoming so horrible to just stay behind either at CBU or on transition.

Does Broadcom really care about owning a security business? I doubt it because if they did then why would they have sold veracode to Thoma Bravo for 950 million immediately in November 2018 after the CA deal closure . Only to acquire another security... —  read more

Third week and no contract to employees in Warsaw.

We started the 3rd week as Broadcom and nothing from them. Where is the paper? Where is annual bonus? Where are those equal or even better benefits? These managers from Warsaw just lie and lie.

Broadcom severance compared to Symantec?

Anyone at Broadcom know the severance formula? The 8-K SEC form says Symantec is responsible for paying severance to any transfer employee terminated within 90 days post close. I'm wondering how the Broadcom severance compares after the 90 days.

Broadcom won't need fire people from Warsaw.

Soon Broadcom won't need to fire people from the office in Warsaw. Almost everyday there's someone announcing he/she is leaving. I hope someone stay to switch off the lights.
