    Pros

    Food is cheap, some people are nice.

    Cons

    I've been told "It's not your place" when discussing potential positive changes to processes by direct manager.
    Direct manager has zero training, expect to be offended regularly.
    People get fired for other people's mistakes.
    Sales team has zero accountability so everyone else has to do their work.
    Work 3 jobs, they pay the price of one.
    Watched Weili throw her jacket at a support staffer, expecting them to hang it up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stop with the blatant nepotism. And learn what a real business model looks like, no one could understand the concentric circle displayed at the last meeting.

    I have been working at Marvell Technology full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Interesting technology. Teams are nimble out of necessity. Need to manage more things which is good but eventually gets out of hand.

    Cons

    - Micromanaged to a high degree to the detriment of the company
    - Market share and stock price clearly indicate what management refuses to acknowledge. - - Other than leadership in storage, no significant inroads in other segments
    - Very few chances for career growth
    - Management generally paranoid about technology being stolen
    - Not professionaly managed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Be humble. If you were as smart as you think, you would be market leaders. That is not the case.
    - Stop being opaque
    - Trust your people
    - Offer better benefits
    - Stop the family culture. Get professional managers who can be held accountable.
