    Marvell encourages professional growth and strives to improve the workplace. Executive management is full of natural leaders with strong business instincts. The company is growing, and with the addition of Cavium the future couldn’t look brighter.


    Base pay could be higher

    Senior Finance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Marvell Semiconductor (Santa Clara, CA) in April 2018.


    Had an extremely pleasant interview process, which lasted about 6 weeks starting from the first phone interview to the offer date. Was referred by an internal candidate and after the first phone conversation with the hiring manager was invited to two rounds of onsite at the Santa Clara Campus. The HR team in particular, were very responsive at every stage and were able to schedule the second onsite (with two different VP/GM), taking into consideration the small window of mutual availability of myself (candidate) and the interviewers. Offer negotiations were also very pleasant.
