    I have been working at Marvell Technology 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.

    I have been working at Marvell Technology as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This summer I worked for Marvell as a software engineering intern in Enterprise Storage. The intern program began this year, and despite that, the director of the program, Toby Thomas, did a spectacular job of making it an enjoyable experience. The co-workers I've met so far are all great people. My manager has been in the industry for quite some time, and was very flexible in terms of projects, as long as I got the job done. The vibe I got from the team as well as upper management was a real can-do attitude, which made it all the more inspiring to work here.

    The meals are also subsidized, and often fairly good. If not, Taco Bell is within walking distance. There's a trail nearby for hiking or biking, and Marvell has a gym that employees can use at any time.

    Cons

    The benefits for interns are very minimal. We have five paid sick days in addition to paid holidays, but not much more than that.

    The intern orientation was lacking this year, in part because this was Marvell's first year holding an internship program. Some of the interns weren't even aware that we had sick days.

    From what I heard from other interns, some managers were not as available for their interns.

    No relocation compensation, at least for interns.
