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

Pros

Maxim focuses on products with good margins. That allows the company to invest in new technologies, compensate employees fairly, and survive economic downturns.

Cons

The semiconductor industry is extremely competitive (actually overserved). IC Companies are constantly struggling to maintain profitability, which is why many of them are toast.

    Pros

    Company isn't going to be going under
    Has decent health insurance
    Individual departments run themselves, so it's possible you can get an awesome manager and have a great working experience at Maxim.

    Cons

    Employees are expendable commodities
    Individual departments run themselves, there are no company-wide ethics to support you.
    The poorest "severance" packages I've ever seen, if you're lucky to even get one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want the public to see Maxim as a good place to work, MAKE it a good place to work, instead of just trying to market a new image.

    Things are getting better, but still lacking adequate staffing. I feel that Tunc is doing a good job.

    Pros

    Interesting work with large number of customers. Great coworkers. Decent lab equipment.

    Cons

    Understaffed, we are absolutely unable to adequately support our customers. Our competition will destroy us if they can provide better support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In understaffed areas you will see heavy attrition once the job market improves, and this will create avalanche effects before you are able to staff back up.
