Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Marvell Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

If you happened to be on the project du jour then there are ample resources to achieve great things.

Cons

No empowerment of middle management. Founders syndrome where all decisions are pushed down from the top. Very powerful internal rumor mill.

Advice to Management

Lack of scale of product lines and businesses due to limited ability of upper management to micromanage all programs. Need to focus more on running divisions as separate business units.

    I worked at Marvell Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Employees receive many perks and are well compensated. Management projects high competence and works hard to dominate markets. Founders are excellent engineers, some of the smartest in the business. Generous recognition and acknowledgements of employees' contributions.

    Cons

    The founding executives tend to be autocratic in their management of the company as is often the case with leadership styles of asian cultures. The Board has not always been as independent as it should have which has led to some serious oversights and missteps. The company does a poor job of creating opportunities for career growth and laterial movement. Marvell is very engineering driven which leads to a lack of focus on other aspects of the business. Bring your families to the office with you on Saturdays and Sundays so you can work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to diversify and decentralize your board. Make sure HR has a policy for promoting career growth from within.
