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

    Pros

    Executive management get it! They are experienced leaders taking Marvell to great places and they do it while caring for the employees. Marvell is focused on developing their employees, developing great leaders and they are transparent. I work with people that care about their work and the impact it will have for Marvell.

    Cons

    The hours can be long, but I have flexibility to work from home when needed. Once in a while I don't like any of the lunch options.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what you say you are going to do. Action towards the employee survey.

    Pros

    Marvell has a great working environment. Co-workers and upper management are very friendly. Being so young in my career, I'm constantly given multiple opportunities to help me grow. I'm constantly being challenged which I love.

    Work life balance is flexible.

    Benefits are very good, perks to the company are nice.

    If you are looking for growing opportunities, then this is the right place to work!

    Cons

    Can't think of any cons.

    Pros

    The location in Santa Clara is good, the cafeteria is wonderful, and most of the people are friendly. Building is nice as well.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no development and attempts by some leaders to start development were shut down by others. The atmosphere from senior leadership is all finger pointing and blame without finding out the facts or fixing the issues, and problem leaders are allowed to continue the poor behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Stop finger pointing, embrace an inclusive culture, and fix the problems. Develop your employees and say thank you once in awhile.

    Pros

    Very good cafeteria foods. Nice working environment with beautiful trails for some exercise at noon. Company birthday celebration and events at campus once in a month. Work life balance is good. Very friendly colleges to work with. Very good health plan. About salary, at least people get pay raises more or less annually… etc.

    Cons

    Self-career development(i.e. promotion) is quite slow but hopefully to see the improvement.
