    I have been working at Marvell Technology

    Pros

    Depending on your department, some supervisors are very supportive and give good training. The atmosphere is very casual, as is most Silicon Valley firms, and hours are flexible, though you will have to prove that you finished the work.

    Cons

    Not very vibrant atmosphere as most engineers here have communication difficulties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate corporate strategy more and define a corporate mission.
