    Thank you – we feel that this is probably a bit beyond the scope of what is covered on the site. Independent research about lawsuits can always be carried out if you wish. We will however have company culture discussions on various S&P 500 and FTSE100 companies coming soon.

    I think what is important to know about working for Broadcom, is whether there are any liabilities towards employee claims in respect of corporate misconduct, labor laws and other areas, or not. This will help me as a jobs seeker to determine if this company is a good fit. For example, if there are ex employees who’s lawyers have sued the company, then clearly it’s not for me, but if it’s not the case, I’d be more happy to apply to them. If anyone has legal information like this or references to specific cases, I’d be much obliged to hear from you.
