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

    Pros

    - good cafeteria
    - decent gym, flexible lunch hours
    - annual company picnic is usually at a big amusement park
    - not many formal processes so sometimes feel like a startup

    Cons

    - lack of career development.
    - upper management does not communicate their vision for the company
    - very little inter-team cooperation leading to failure
    - unbalanced work loads between teams as some are over-staffed while others are under-staffed
    - opaque bonus process
    - salary is usually below market rate

    Advice to Management

    give employees your vision for the company, let engineers know how their work is impacting customers so that people are more motivated, better communication about big company-wide changes should be formally announced instead of hearing through the rumor mill

    I have been working at Marvell Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    good cafeteria, good gym facilities
    still get paid

    Cons

    questionable ethics and hiring practices; just look at all of the criminal insider-trading news that mentions this company. look at the outstanding patent lawsuits. look at the how many cfos there have been in the last ten years, and the current one still has "interim" status. look at the board of directors: ever heard of any of these people?

    some decently nice and intelligent people to work with, but offset by some pretty incompetent ones along with their managers and executives.

    hard to have much pride working for a place like this.

    Advice to Management

    it is not about the company and the employees, it is all about the founders and executives. many good companies become that way by hiring people smarter than you are, but no one hired here can be smarter than the executives.
