It's been a great place to innovate, but you have to champion things and push past a lot of beaurocracy.

I have been working at Maxim Integrated full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Good people. Smart people. Lots of ambition and aggressive pursuit. Good opportunities to innovate in analog/mixed-signal space.

Cons

Too much politics in the higher levels. Decisions made by people isolated from the relevant experience/market/customers. These higher level decision makers don't listen very well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to and empower the people below you.

    Pros

    Great team work. Can move from department to department. Great cross-department collaboration. Focus on innovation.

    Cons

    Technically, you saturate at senior level. After that slower movement. Difficult to get towards management.
