    challenging place to work

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at MaxLinear

    Pros

    MaxLinear is one of the fastest growing companies in the section, and you'll share the fair benefit. (At least for now, people are happy with stock price rise-up)

    Cons

    Work load is quite challenging, and the work flow is less stable than the bigger companies. The company begins to hiring the managerial level from the other companies rather than promoting from the insiders.

    I have been working at MaxLinear full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked at MaxLinear for about a year- as a staff level engineer. The CEO is a frequent visitor to our work areas-asking how its going- what are the problems and listening to our technical discussions.

    Cons

    Some of the cross functional communication is clumsy and not always effective - too many emails on the same subject.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep meetings brief and to the point

    Pros

    Lots of hires this year of smart engineers- added talent to the teams- products good and pace is fast and interesting

    Pace is sometimes hectic but it comes and goes so not like that all the time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with the frequent communication- company events this year were fun

    I have been working at MaxLinear full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Engineering teams work on cross functional teams and quickly build broader base technical skills. A great career move! The access to the senior leaders is open to all. Since many of them are also engineers it often is a great conversation.

    Cons

    Being a smaller company there are sometimes some resource challenges but the teams in other countries really do their part so it all works.

    I have been working at MaxLinear

    Pros

    Because Maxlinear is smaller - you get to do things that you can't do for years and years in a larger organization. You are not "just some cog in the wheel" you are a player from the start! It is a place of intensity - work really hard and play hard. There are great people to hang out with so you never have to feel out of things. Cool groups that get together.

    Cons

    It is a real open and accessible enviornment - you can walk right up to the CEO and talk with him but sometimes he can be a little demanding.

    I have been working at MaxLinear full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It is a greatest place for engineering and management to gain incredible experience in the short time and grow up rapidly with company. I really enjoy the engineers around me and the positive attitude from everyone to win every design. I feel strongly we work as a team and gain the credit together. There is no individual worker who just finishes the assigned job and goes home. The teammates just like my family and cover each other when there is any difficulty inside and outside the job. Awesome working culture! Everyone likes to win and treats this company as his own!

    Cons

    Need to focus on higher ASP products in the road map to turn the engineering/management effort to be valuable!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work to make precise decision and keep respecting each employee as last year.

    Pros

    Great set of engineers world wide, fast paced, dynamic environment. If you like all of that, and consider yourself to be a good engineer, then this is the place in the high tech industry. Things are getting better with some new leadership in key areas who exhibit a vision which is longer and more strategic

    Cons

    short project schedules = long hours
