I have been working at Maxim Integrated

Pros

There are many interesting engineering project and work, and there are some sharp technical people within the company. Overall good company strategy.

Cons

The company is trying to change its culture. But is still learning how to empower employees. There are many opportunities to grow the infrastructure.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I don't have any particular opinion or advice. Wish Maxim can grow into a world class analog and mixed signal company.

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Senior management (VP and above) are competent and want to do well.

    Cons

    1. There is no team work. Even engineers in your own team backstab you on occasions.
    2. Lower level management are either unethical or incompetent. One manager (now director) essentially outsources engineering jobs in the US over to Turkey; treat employees here with utmost disrespect, and backstab people left and right.
    3. Too many people seem to be content waiting for retirement. You never see engineers younger than 30. At times it feels like a retirement home.
    4. Base salary lower than any companies I worked for.
    5. Project management with Project Success Method is extremely inefficient. It is good for project managers and management to play pass the buck.
    6. Business management in certain Business units are incompetent. Some don't even show up to work!
    7. Promotions are based on who you know and sucking up, and not on achievements or competence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maxim is still an engineering company. Stop treating engineers like second class citizens compared to business managers.

    Pros

    Great sense of family; not too political; if you want to make change there aren't many obstacles in your way

    Cons

    Lack sophisticated infrastructure and perks of other high-techs in the Valley; IT leadership is rooted in the 90's; underinvestment problem with key, strategic projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Changing culture is more than just saying we are going to change, leadership needs to lead by example. Loosen the ties, let light into the buildings, let employees flourish.
