    Pros

    1. Great cafeteria. 2. A few teams are still smart, where can learn a lot.

    Cons

    1. This company is trying to save every penny on their employee. 2. Some times you have to work with people who cannot take challenge and get things done, usually from those teams that should be cut long time ago. This is making working here a bit less efficient and disappointing. 3. The decision makers are not doing a good job in leading the company to a promising direction 4. There is no culture, no value here

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep those smart people instead of let them go. Build some culture to make employee proud of working here.

    Pros

    Great place to gain knowledge. You have to put in your own effort in learning things. Great food in cafeteria and good gym

    Cons

    Not too much cons generally speaking. Not very clear career path. Sometime need to change direction and I think that's normal with dynamic companies

    Pros

    open learning culture, bright minds, very good technology

    Cons

    Not a market leader in any significant products (except commodity printing). HDDs are a declining business. Where will Marvell be in 5 years? 10 years? Do you want to survive or thrive? Lacking laser focus. Want to have a foot in every boat.

    Advice to Management

    You have built an excellent company. There is a capability ceiling to everyone after 20 years at the top. Time to hand over the baton, and see Marvell grow to new heights.
