Pros

Very good pay for salaried individuals. Fair pay raises in this day and age, excellent bonus pool when the company does well. Maxim is a foward looking company, planning years ahead to stay profitable. Senior management seems to have alignment and vision. Competive benefits balanced with other "semiconductor" companies but not businesses across the board.

Cons

Not family friendly. 24 hours a year for sickness, family illness or children issues. After that your written up for attendance issues (hourly employees). With compressed shifts being 12 hours long, that equals 2 days a year before attendance is at issue. Salaried employees fair much better and do not risk being laid off because they have poor health or a sickly family member. Depending which Vice President your under, you will ALWAYS feel 1 day away from being laid off. Leadership by fear and intimidation vs. A VP who leads by example.

Advice to Management

Stop it. Stop using benefit data from 1980's and understand people have illnesses, live with disease and disorders. People raise children and have families. Stop with an absense policy that encourages sick people to come to work. Look at all industries and see how they treat employees. Enough already with the fear mongering. Each day I went to work, I felt like it would be my last day, until it finally was, not for performance but for being an American trying to work at a company where the ethnicity of your VP determines your future.

    Pros

    All the groups have extremely smart people. The company is growing with new strategy of aligning business units according to end products.

    Cons

    Salary level is less compared to others. Number of vacation days are few too. Need more products in non analog space.

    Pros

    Talented folks - lots of great ideas and ambitions. Solid company IP

    Cons

    Political. Business mentality. Inconsistency in management. Lack of alignment between business units/groups. Not a one maxim!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the individual contributors. Improve rank and rating methodologies especially for middle management.
