    As a satellite office, I feel unconnected to corporate culture, business strategy, & other activities going on at HQ.

    I have been working at Marvell Technology

    Pros

    (comments pertain to my satellite location and my particular engineering team)

    Flexible work hours
    Good working environment on site
    Convenient office location
    Enjoy my work and fellow team members
    Great technology in many areas; in others, consistently playing catch-up with industry leaders

    Cons

    (many of these problems are common to the high-tech industry in general)

    "Process" seems to be a dirty word at Marvell--reinvention is preferred
    Revolving door in many upper mgmt positions
    Management by politics and relationships is common; promotion in some (many?) teams seems to depend on ethnic similarity with immediate manager
    Too many great engineers with lousy people skills promoted to management positions
    Exec Mgmt team and Board reap financial benefits on the backs of employees (shorter option vesting periods)
    Micromanagement at the highest levels (does the CEO really need to review every resume and offer?)
    Believe too much the spin in their own press releases

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ditch the "mom and pop shop" management style and embrace the big-company approach to truly become an industry leader in the eyes of customers and competitors.

    Hiring "the best of the best" required job offers that are second to none; you must also learn to retain the best of the best to be more competitive.

    Marvell employees really do care about working smarter and want to help Marvell succeed.

    Please conduct more open forums at satellite offices and really listen to the good, the bad, and the ugly....we all want us to be successful.
