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

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    Base pay could be higher

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Marvell is a great place to work. Would be nice to see some compensation improvement.
