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 thinking about how to leave. I wonder if there is anyone else here, other than the privileged ones, who doesn’t do work for several people?

Make sure your manager thinks you are at your limit, even if you are sitting back with your feet on the desk.
Do not be honest or transparent about your available capacity... that is a sign of weakness at Broadcom. Management will take you for a rube and give you more work.

My experience was that the people “going places” did as little as possible for others unless it would help them be seen by their management. You will not be thanked for going above and beyond your remit unless you are in a fortunate area of the business. The reason you have too much to do is because HT continues to cut staff and will continue to do so. Picking up the extra work is unlikely to do you any favours unless you enjoy working in a culture of pure “Manage-up” and fear of when redundancy will come knocking…
