    Pros

    Always at the edge of technology. Very demanding work place but has its benefits if you enjoy challenges.

    Cons

    Very long hours. Management usually do not care about personal life and their assumption is that you belong to them, at least, while they pay your salary.

    One of the worst companies I have worked at and I have worked at quite a few. Very small raise/bonus. Bad communication. Bad internal design documentation. Has some very talented people. But lot of office politics among management especially in headquarters. Things not looking good right now.

    I worked at Marvell Technology full-time

    Pros

    The people were excellent. The work was medially interesting. The largest downside was the structuring of the company. It's extremely secretive so no one knows who to talk to.

    Cons

    The upper management saw little interest in developing key assets or improving their work force.

    Advice to Management

    Take more interest in your employees, encourage them to take on side projects utilizing the companies technology.
