Pros

Very flexible work hours. Wide visibility to higher management Good place for followers. Don't try to lead any new ideas or activities unless you are told to do so!

Cons

Mandated innovation drives that create a lot of work and buzz but no results. Promotion via buddy system - often promoting people who are the least capable No appreciation for those who push for a better company. Little sense of reality - It's 2011 and not 1993! Not a place for fresh ideas, unless they come from the top!

Advice to Management

Get real. Some of the goals and metrics are ridiculous! Go get a MBA or similar so you learn what management means! To us who have seen more mature companies from inside, Maxim does not shine as the most professional managed place.

    Pros

    Positive cultural shift under way (more collaborative, communicative); extremely smart and dedicated employees; great products; renewed focus on customers; new, modern HQ campus opens in 2012

    Cons

    Intense work ethic; product-centric focus; rather insular and myopic (old habits?); should be very proud of its achievements and no longer remain quiet

    Advice to Management

    This is a remarkable, established company but not yet well known; continue to value new culture of collaboration and communication...and LEAD

    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 Management

    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.
