    I worked at Marvell Technology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Cafeteria is good but you need to pay
    - gym is great
    - workload is low, no deadlines.

    Cons

    - The company is too cheap. Pay is low, they tried to save every penny from employees
    - The high-level management is not transparent, the decision maker is not doing a good job, made the company's future unclear
    - Absolutely NO culture and value.
    - Some teams are really hard to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Need to think about the correct direction of company, instead of thinking about how to cut the cost all the time.
