    I worked at Maxim Integrated

    Pros

    Engineering is very solid and the company has the potential to be great again.

    Cons

    The current CEO and CFO don't think twice about terminating people that are still strong contributors. All they care about is market perception. There was a time when this was not the case. The problem with their approach is that they have destroyed moral. No person feels safe at Maxim so people operate under constant fear and are terrified of making a mistake. This makes for a very unhealthy work environment. It is very sad as the original CEO would never have let this happen. Outsourcing and purchasing external innovation is the new model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the current CEO and stop throwing away American jobs. Be bold and take risk's without outsourcing.
