Bad Company to start career at

Test Engineer (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

I worked at Maxim Integrated full-time for more than a year

ProsNothing....if you are a new grad, don't start career here because management is ruthless and incompetent. The worst decision I made in my life to work here when much more stable companies were knocking at my door. It was like marrying a bad wife...just don't do it ever....learn from my mistake. Senior engineers are really just more paid off pawns who are scared to be let go themselves and rely on the steady paycheck.

ConsEverything....management is out of touch..had no idea how hard its engineering staff works on new chipsets and the challenges and time needed to develop the next generation of chip sets...would rather get a Christmas bonus than seek long term growth....company is corrupt and not about engineering anymore. They are always looking for new blood to use and people who are unaware and/or desperate. The company is incompetent and you'd be better off using your engineering mind somewhere where there is long term investment in your skills and development. This company could be realize its full potential if incompotence was not promoted everywhere. The company is being sabotaged from within.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone....power has corrupted them beyond repair....

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Struggling to move beyond startup mentality

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

I worked at Maxim Integrated full-time for more than 5 years
