I worked at Maxim Integrated

Pros

Good business model. Initially granted ability to change, create, improve. Decent benefits and bonus program. Talented group of co-workers that would work long hours for the joy of creating quality work.

Cons

Drastic change in work environment over last few years. Tyrannical upper management. Lack of trust in the organization. All emphasis on negatives. Loyal employees no longer fit new organizational model.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pounding on a table during meetings is generally not a good motivational tool. Some positive reinforcement is a good thing. Take a good look at why morale is so bad at so many locations.

    Pros

    Very diversified products across different industries. Highly independent business units provide further diversity over management or business cycles. Great performance metrics to measure every aspects of groups and individuals.

    Cons

    There are still quite many less competent persons in different positions of the company. Many high quality people left in past several years because of poor stock performance and return.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need do better job to attract top notch talents. Make the compensation more competitive. A capable employee is worth several mediocre ones.

    Tunc did a great job!

    Pros

    Able to create & invent new solutions as long as the mangers from Planet Dilbert don't see it!
    Stock options & cash bonuses are good.

    Cons

    Way too much petty politics & back stabbing.
    Doesn't matter to the management even if you create a best in the industry solution!
    Most of the management seems to be from Planet Dilbert!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead, follow or get out of the way!
