    I worked at Marvell Semiconductor full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good people and great tech, wide variety of projects

    Cons

    As with most HW companies, SW is an afterthought, the tail does NOT wag the dog. SW has very little visibility of what's coming down the pipe, no collaboration between sw/hw on new features. No commitment by SW management to support still-selling legacy HW under new OS versions

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Marvell Semiconductor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The cafeteria food is excellent but not free.

    Cons

    Management micromanages everyone. There are 1:1, weekly status reports, hours worked on each project, etc. This causes engineering to get stressed out because you're being watched most of the time. Hardly any work/family balance. No free soda, snacks, dinner; just free coffee and sugar.
