    I have been working at Marvell Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very shallow organization. Only 4 levels of hierarchy between engineer and CEO. Entire management chain is highly technical and hands on in most groups.
    For someone with enthusiasm and motivation there are endless opportunities and possibilities. There is some politics but very minimal.

    Cons

    Lack of long term product roadmap at the executive level. This results in unnecessary thrashing and schedule pressure at the engineering level.

    Advice to Management

    Marvell is no longer a startup but transitioning into a mature company. Internal processes and execution have to be adjusted to allow that growth or the company will bootstrap itself from expanding to the next level.
