    I have been working at Marvell Technology full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decently nice corporate campus. Good workout facilities. Cafeteria offers variety of subsidized food. Pockets of smart, hardworking engineers. Still get paid.

    Cons

    Many incompetent engineers in some critical positions. Sometimes very inefficient and chaotic processes makes many tasks much more difficult and frustrating that necessary. Anonymous upper level management who are rarely seen and who often dictate arbitrary policies that can change often. Lots of politics and sometimes questionable ethical behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is all about the emperor and empress. The rest of us in the trenches really do not matter. Many smart people have left; we stupid ones are milking it for what it is worth until we, too, can leave. Even the co-founder and CTO left this year.
