Lack of stock option returns have brought true feelings about the company to surface.

Pros

You get to work with smart people. The employees do try their best to make the company successful.

Cons

Company has gotten bureaucratic. Lack strong leadership & vision from senior management after Jack left. There are product overlaps with different business units, which get territorial. There is not enough collaboration between the business units.

Advice to Management

Manage with more specific market vision.

    You can make the technical decision. Flexible time.

    Cons

    Micromanagement to the extrem! Your manager has zero authurity on your compensation. Strong buddy-buddy system. No technical career ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Need technical ladders for those who has no interest to do management work.

    Pros

    All depends on the position you have. As a BM, you get a lot of responsibility for running a product line and exposure to the various parts of the company. This is highly attractive and a good path to work your way up the general management ladder. You can learn very good business practices related to product development and evaluation of projects, although this is always an inexact science.

    Cons

    With the stock completely depressed, I hope Maxim has changed its cash compensation strategy. It was certainly low given the market and given the very limited perks and the cost-cutting culture within the company. Somewhat of a political environment - to get rewarded you better be close to your boss.

    Advice to Management

    The all about the bottom line culture worked when the stock was doing great, but I think a softer approach towards employees may be required to retain talent
