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

Pros

Small enough to be nimble and to have direct interactions with top mgmt. Jobs are broad and performance standards above average...if you are good at your area of speciality and willing to learn you will succeed here.
This has the energy of a start up but the processes of a public company.

Cons

Have to come up to speed fast in order not to get left behind

    Pros

    Good if you want an H1-B visa. They seem to prefer foreign employees who have lower salary requirements.

    Cons

    Horrible culture, too many employees who cannot speak English (majority are foreign employees), long work hours. No work/life balance, lack of direction, horrible management. Top management does not encourage their employees to grow. If you do something positive, they only tell you how you didn't do good enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be nice to people. They are putting in the hours to make your company survive.

    Pros

    This company has changed significantly in this past year. Moving from a start-up culture (which had some negatives in terms of work-life balance) to adding new organzational infrastructure, which is allowing it to scale and grow. Organizational focus is mainly on recruitment of talented people and teamwork, to keep up with the business growth. Still a very aggressive engineering environment with a drive to be the best - very competitive. Great environment for talented engineers, who want to be challenged and aren't afraid to make decisions they'll stand behind. Great opportunity for leaders as well as individual contributors.

    Cons

    Still some internal challenges with organizational changes, but definitely moving in the right direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, and encourage feedback. Keep moving in the direction you've been going.
