Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Marvell Semiconductor full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

If you happened to be on the project du jour then there are ample resources to achieve great things.

Cons

No empowerment of middle management. Founders syndrome where all decisions are pushed down from the top. Very powerful internal rumor mill.

Advice to Management

Lack of scale of product lines and businesses due to limited ability of upper management to micromanage all programs. Need to focus more on running divisions as separate business units.

    I have been working at Marvell Semiconductor full-time

    Pros

    If you are in the right team, you can seek solace in working with good people.
    Decent cafeteria
    Decent campus
    Some groups working on awesome cutting edge stuff.

    Cons

    Managers have no power. Everything comes from the top.
    CEO has his favorites.
    Lateral movement is not encouraged/allowed
    Ultimate penny pinchers
    WIll make you work like hell and pay peanuts. No raises either. Sweatshop mentality.
    The stock sucks

    Advice to Management

    Resign and let pros manage the company. Even after a buy back the stock has tanked. It is not because people are not working harder. You are making the wrong decisions. Market share does not equal profitability.
