Pros

Work with competent co-workers, you will learn a lot. People are mostly helpful and innovation is encouraged. Great benefits - profit sharing, 401k, health, etc.

Cons

Recent reorgs and layoffs - although minor compared to industry.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
