    I have been working at Marvell Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - good cafeteria
    - decent gym, flexible lunch hours
    - annual company picnic is usually at a big amusement park
    - not many formal processes so sometimes feel like a startup

    Cons

    - lack of career development.
    - upper management does not communicate their vision for the company
    - very little inter-team cooperation leading to failure
    - unbalanced work loads between teams as some are over-staffed while others are under-staffed
    - opaque bonus process
    - salary is usually below market rate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give employees your vision for the company, let engineers know how their work is impacting customers so that people are more motivated, better communication about big company-wide changes should be formally announced instead of hearing through the rumor mill

    Schizophrenic executive management creates lots of thrash

    I worked at Marvell Technology full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Nice physical work environment, reasonable tools
    In Santa Clara - heavily subsidized meals
    Some very smart people - most teams are quite capable
    Marvell has lots of neat technologies - that seem quite synergistic

    Cons

    Decision making is crippled by too many late reversals/edicts by executive management
    Compensation is not really competitive, very poor variable compensation (so no upside)
    Internal product teams are often set up to compete against each other - this saps morale
    Marvell never seems to capitalize on its technology fully....
    Just feels like the whole is less than the sum of the parts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire senior managers and give them enough time to make a success of new directions
    Get out of the way... you seem to think you know more than the content experts you hired
    Spend your time on the big strategic issues and not second guessing/micro-managing the troops
