I worked at Maxim Integrated

Pros

I Learned a lot working here. My coworkers were awesome and very friendly. They were very smart, professional, and helpful too.

Cons

There were no getting to know your coworkers. Working was pretty lonely for the first few weeks. There were little, if any, people ages 18-25 working here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Feedback is always appreciated. The lunch was very nice for getting to know a few coworkers off the bat. Hire more people in the 18-25 range.

    I work with good competent technical people on interesting projects with little support in an atmosphere of fear.

    I have been working at Maxim Integrated

    Pros

    Good technical knowledge. Able to get designs to market and see results of your work. Flexible holiday schedules. Ability to move to different design centers around the country if you desire.

    Cons

    Upper management rules by whim and engenders fear. Panic mode set in for many groups. Limited cooperation between business units. No motivation for stock appreciation. Designers expected to do design, product engineering, production support, customer support, with little support. Remote design sites shut down suddenly for no apparent reason, and goon squads sent in to manage dismissal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are running on a skeleton crew, and many people are ready to burn out. You need to show some loyalty to the employees who have committed to your company.
