Thread regarding Broadcom Corp. layoffs

Would you give up good pay for a better atmosphere?

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 has different priorities and if this company thinks that pay is enough and that nothing more needs to be done to keep their old employees... that is a huge mistake.

@tryintoleave it's his manipulative and psychological warfare approach to keep people in line. He's personalized this when he says "protect what we've built"...it's almost Trump-like in nature.

I'm the end he trusts nobody. You hear it in the little thing he says. It almost a paranoia and borderline psychotic.

If he doesn't acquire another company soon, and the steer is pressuring him, it will get real ugly 2H 2022. For now enjoy the ride....

The company clearly doesn't value our efforts, or what we achieved during the pandemic. The CEO is the face of the company, and he said we suck.
BTW, other companies have similar RSU benefits. They are big like Broadcom, but better ran by modern thinkers. It's worth your time to look.

@2nop+1cIEH0EV nobody with half a brain would come here. unless they're desperate... and there are some...

i've forwarded openings to some people, they just laughed... "100% in office..? self-service IT...? badge checking to see who's coming in ...?. i think they were insulted when i sent them the opening...

everyone here has a story...some have a nightmare...others are doing nothing and being paid....

The pay is not that good here unless you level 5 or above in R band or a director/VP. Those RSUs are lifechanging but try being in the G band where you are looked at like a fing secretary. The RSUs then are not that much better than competing offers. Oh and REMOTE!

Short-term profit is what matters here. There are three ways to achieve this.

  1. Increase overall business
  2. Raise prices for existing customers
  3. Cut costs - primarily wage costs.
  1. is very difficult without a long term strategy of investment, which itself is damaging to short term profits
  2. is already happening
  3. consistent policy.

Overall this means keeping current employees for only as long as strictly necessary, achieved through the overall package, then cut. As mentioned by other rehiring is problematic due to the reputation the business now has.

Your assuming management wants to keep good employees. Ask yourself, does any of what they are doing suggest that? I would respectfully suggest that Broadcom wants to maximize short term profit.

That is all.
