    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for personal growth and gaining new skill sets through putting on lots of different hats. Challenging work.

    Cons

    People seemed overworked, there's too much to do for each person. For those who have been here many years, can be stuck in meetings for the entire day.

    Pros

    Interesting work...a place where you can make a difference. Pay is good especially for top performers. Benefits are very good. A very nice modern campus in San Jose and many upgrades to remote facilities. I have worked here 5 years and continue to see positive changes.

    Cons

    Balanced business model insufficient to offset Samsung revenue declines in smart phones. More intensity to grow outside of mobility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in larger acquisitions.

    I have been working at Maxim Integrated full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good, hours are reasonable for an engineering position. The amount of starting vacation is excellent. The office culture has changed to be a lot less intense that it was 5 years ago. You will have the opportunity to make real changes at this company.

    Cons

    Management has been changing constantly. Directors have been moved around faster than I can remember. There is a constant feeling of under staffing in all positions. Has almost zero respect for work-life balance. Expected to be "on-line" constantly, including reachable during vacation.
