    OK in general. But it depends on which division you are in.

    Current Employee - Director in Santa Clara, CA

    I have been working at Marvell Technology full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, friendly and cooperative culture, on-site gym, access to almost any type of advance industrial tools.

    Cons

    Stressful environment, schedule and decisions were made top-down, with little input from even mid-level management. Project execution also have much room to improve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be realistic on scheduling with available resources.

    Former Employee - Director in Santa Clara, CA

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

    Pros

    Everything is open to rethinking and redoing...plenty of opportunities to contribute and get creative.

    Cons

    The culture is much different than the typical silicon valley employer. There also appeared to be a layer of unproductive politics in the G&A organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for opportunities to build trust between management layers. Find trustworthy leaders and shovel more responsibility in their direction.

    Current Employee - Senior Staff Design Engineer in Santa Clara, CA
    Current Employee - Senior Staff Design Engineer in Santa Clara, CA

    I have been working at Marvell Technology full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nice cafetaria and gym. And if you work in established group (not in speculative group working on product with no customers), then it's a very safe house. You will find worst engineer in your life in this group but somehow always survive and keeps working at Marvell for many years.

    Cons

    No transparency from management. In a recent case, the bonus was small because management said that company's target was not met. However, the management also said that they don't know what the target was. And promotion seems to be random. Some average-performing people got promoted, and some good-performing people just don't get promoted.
      In conclusion, only work here as your last choice or you're lazy to move to other company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company's management is so bad that any advice to management is of no use.

    Pros

    Very nice Campus, good cafeteria.

    Cons

    Chaotic 'management' style, based on flawed concept 'best technical staff will make the best managers'. Start up culture failing to scale to corporation.

    Pros

    Market leader in many segments. Innovative new technologies (first to WiFi in Sony game console, first to WiFi in Apple iPhone, WiFi in Google Chromecast etc).

    Engineering management overall is very hands on.

    Nice gym, cafeteria and facility.

    No clearly established process. Cross department coordination is really difficult. Career growth could be challenging depending on the particular group(s).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find better ways to empower and reward employees. Improve management communications.
