    I have been working at Cavium Networks


    Engineers are given much greater responsibility than other companies, endowing them with a sense of ownership. Seasoned technical leadership team maintains focus on getting quality products out by emphasizing on features important to the market and customers.


    while challenging and rewarding, work does intrude a lot into your life, due to the small team size.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide broader technical experience to college recruits. Improve 401k match and additional vacation time for long term employees. Seriously consider a 2-month sabbatical after 7-8 years of experience.
