    Pros

    Start-up feel and culture. Not bogged down with too many meetings. Engineering competency is high.

    Cons

    Poor upper management and at the executive level.

    Advice to Management

    Step aside. Embrace what polices that made Marvell thrive in the early 2000s . Old-school status quo politics will be Marvell's undoing.

    Pros

    Time-off and compensation is great. Some of my team (Marketing) members were interesting people and had great ideas for the company.

    Cons

    The office culture just wasn't there. Most of the people I talked to, even the interesting ones, told me that they were 'dying here'. The atmosphere is just too dull and not the kind of place for someone who actually wants to wake up every morning and go to work. If you're under 40, and your career still has someplace to go, find another company to join.

    Advice to Management

    Improve on the social aspect of the company. More activities to get people out of their cubicles and out into the sun.
