    I have been working at Marvell Technology full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Small company feel and lots to learn. There is good local management and some really excellent engineers that work there. The new CEO and managers seem to be turning things around. Most of the big issues have finally been taken care of. There should be lots of upside once they get costs under control.

    Cons

    Ugh. I worked there for 10 years and it has been just a down hill slide after about 2 or 3 years. We were brought over as a group from Intel 10 years ago and there were 400 of us, from this original group there are only 25 left. There was a big scandal involving accounting and another big lawsuit for patent infringement. I feel like these issues are mostly due to the ego of our founder and CEO Sehat. We did have a few good years and CEO did try to move into new businesses like mobile when the cards were stacked against him.

    Advice to Management

    Please get your ducks in a row so that we don't have to deal with all of the extra stuff and can finally focus on just doing some great engineering.

    I worked at Marvell Technology full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Marvell used to be a great place to work if one could avoid top level management. Multiple projects with ability to innovate and use engineer's own initiative. Good lab equipment, money was spent were needed.

    Cons

    Top level management's ineptness over the years is causing company's current internal implosion. Accounting scandals, justice department and SEC investigations, class action patent lawsuits. Most of these cons could probably be resolved with the ouster of the CEO.

    Advice to Management

    Board of Directors needs to remove the Sutardja's.

    Pros

    Perks - they're trying to retain people - with stuff like free lunch, sodas, and a semi-annual friendly ping pong tournaments. Potentially, it could get some decent projects and revenue growth, and it has a solid revenue base, so the stock options may well be worth one's time...(are they ever anymore?)
    As a moderate sized company, it still has some very small thinking (which can be refreshing, providing freedom) and yet...

    Cons

    401K contributions are lousy.
    Turnover is generally high, especially in silicon valley
    Sometimes that small company mentality (smaller mentality than it is) means the VP of Engineering has to approve your unix account...really???

    Advice to Management

    The perception is that there is a buddy-buddy-club of good friends of Sehat (CEO and founder)...and that makes it somewhat of a joke from time to time.
