    Pros

    Marvell Switzerland is indeed a great place to work for a multitude of reasons. First and foremost, it is the engineering team: people are technically solid, collaborative, approachable, friendly and respectful. Beyond that the management team is responsive, transparent and understanding. Evaluation is fair. On the perk side, you will have the opportunity to excel baby foot and billiard :). Office is conveniently located close to supermarkets. If you are an English speaker, you will have the chance to learn French from a friendly teacher who comes to site once every week. In short, if you join Marvell Switzerland, you will enjoy a balance between your life and your work and you will have fun while you technically and constantly grow.

    Cons

    This is a remote site and there is sometimes a bit of disconnect from the headquarters. But management often tries to fill this gap so that employees get the overall big picture.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good practice of having the employees in the loop and defining new projects.

    Pros

    Marvell Switzerland brings the best of all world in one place, projects which are highly challenging, engineers who are approachable, friendly and competent and management which is transparent and understanding. The company culture promotes collaborative team work and encourage normal balance between work and life. In short, it is fun to work at Marvell Switzerland.

    Cons

    The company is a remote site and that sometimes brings a sense of disconnect from the US head quarter. This is alleviated to a large extent by the active sharing of the company big picture by the management.
