Pros

Good benefits, they still provide two family based special events including a spread at Christmas time. Provide quarterly bonuses.

Cons

Unless you have an obscene amount of educational titles after your name you can be expected to be treated like office furniture with absolutely no hope of rising to a management position. There is no amount of time or company experience they will accept. They will hire from the outside before they will promote from within. Annual reviews do not give more than 3% raise no matter what and that is only if you preform perfectly. This is barely enough to cover tax increases and not enough to cover cost of living increases. Recognition for achievements in the company is reserved strictly for engineers. The managers do not recognize any support staff as being necessary and has said so.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Everyone should have a chance to advance, EVERYONE. Just because your employee spent the last ten years of their life working for you instead of passing classes does not mean they are not perfectly capable of advancing to higher positions. Especially when they have already proved that they can do that position.

    I worked at Maxim Integrated

    Pros

    Good co-workers, little politics, fun, interesting work.

    Cons

    Salary is a bit low

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time on having a well-planned out program with intern interactions and presentations. Interns are investing in the future so you want to pamper them.
