    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Marvell Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Great health benefits. In fact, one of the plans just beats plans offered by many other companies
    * Awesome dining and cafe. Really, one of the best I have come across with the exception of Google.
    * Perfect work life balance. Nice ping pong tables, volleyball court.

    Cons

    * Salary is a joke. All reviewers commenting here that the salary is average or acceptable are either satisfied with whatever pittance is being thrown at them or are in denial or for some arbitrary reason are actually getting a good salary. Generally speaking, compensation is atrocious. If you don't believe me, just compare Glassdoor numbers with other companies in similar space.
    * Process process process: there is none. Its the most frustrating experience of this company. You spend a lot of time doing things that should not have been a problem. It leads to low quality of work and high inefficiency.
    * The company is slowly bleeding and what the company needs is aggressive, motivating and innovative executives. Execs you can look upto, who inspire the employees and who meet their goals. What Marvell has are old school execs who are unwilling to change with time and competition and you cant trust a word they say.

    Advice to Management

    Read glassdoor stats. Only 42% recommend this company and CEO approval rating is 44%. I haven't seen anything lower than this. I give this company 4-6 quarters. The above issues are serious: Talent pool is drying up at Marvell. Marvell lets go of awesome employees like it means nothing to them. Stock is tanking and execs look like they have no clue what they are doing. So 6 quarters tops and if nothing changes, jump ships because this is sinking for sure.
