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

    Pros

    Marvell has a good working environment in terms of colleagues, manager, working loads and stress. Working loads is quite balanced, so you won't get tremendous stress. Manager and colleagues are very nice and very willing to share their expertise. Marvell has excellent ESPP program and excellent subsidized food including breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are lots of events regularly too.

    Cons

    Salary is relatively on the lower side in the market. But still competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.
