Former Employee - Senior Design Engineer in Santa Clara, CA

I worked at Marvell Technology full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Very technical people around. Some are good.
Positive culture for innovation.
Push design to extreme and go after it relentlessly.

Cons

Low ball offers for good engineers. Very stupid idea.

Horrible CAD environment. You need spend ~ 2x time to get what can be done in other companies. The network connection is very very slow and glitchy. Your desktop can freeze any time.

Design/layout have to done multiple times. Because internal CAD flow is changing from time to time constantly, you never know when you will get a finalized design.

Company is going down. Losing a lot of business to other competitors. Future is not bright.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire CAD department head. Find a regular one will do 10x better.
Fire IT department head. Find someone knows QoS.
Layoff 20% people. It is a good time to get lean and competitive. Too many incapable people now compared with 5 years ago.

    I have been working at Marvell Technology full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Amazing technology portfolio. The founders keep up on technologies and markets and make quick decisions.

    Cons

    Low salary increases with reviews; few opportunities for promotion. Confusion and lack of information in working teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve salary increases and benefits to retain top talent. Even in this market, good people are hard to find. More communication to employees; but not just handing out directives.
