Senior Management is CLUELESS

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Santa Clara, CA (US)

I have been working at Marvell Technology full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFood is cheap, some people are nice.

ConsI've been told "It's not your place" when discussing potential positive changes to processes by direct manager.
Direct manager has zero training, expect to be offended regularly.
People get fired for other people's mistakes.
Sales team has zero accountability so everyone else has to do their work.
Work 3 jobs, they pay the price of one.
Watched Weili throw her jacket at a support staffer, expecting them to hang it up.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease stop with the blatant nepotism. And learn what a real business model looks like, no one could understand the concentric circle displayed at the last meeting.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
