I have been working at Maxim Integrated full-time

Pros

Can't think of any pros.

Cons

Majority of new college hires are linked to Maxim Executives. Let's give one example. In the most successful mobility Business Unit, there are 5 executive kids hired in the last two years. Guess what? There are 7 execs in the BU! It's not different for interns or new hires in other BUs. All info is public. Go to linkedin to check for yourself!

Hiring your executive's kids, instead of hiring top talent! Nice job Maxim

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire best talent! Not your kids! Promote meritocracy, not nepotism!!

    Pros

    Maxim's greatest asset are the excellent employees that work at the company. There is always something new you learn on the job as well as in he classes and lectures Maxim offers. Keep it up Maxim!

    Cons

    Company runs too lean. Need better communication from middle management regarding company direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe Maixm needs to sacrifice a little today to be better positioned for the future.

    I have been working at Maxim Integrated full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good to work in a large company and learn a lot from many knowledgeable engineers. Engineers there are very nice and helpful. They provide very serious and challenging internship work and also expect interns to take the work serious and be productive.

    Cons

    In my internship duration, I have to do everything including circuit design and software development. Sometimes, it is frustrating to develop software for a circuit designer.
