    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.

    Pros

    Depending on your department, some supervisors are very supportive and give good training. The atmosphere is very casual, as is most Silicon Valley firms, and hours are flexible, though you will have to prove that you finished the work.

    Cons

    Not very vibrant atmosphere as most engineers here have communication difficulties.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate corporate strategy more and define a corporate mission.
