Pros

Maxim has its share of exceptional engineers and a diverse mix of products. You can work on radio frequency chips or on battery management chips. It uses it own fabs and processes but also uses outside foundries when needed, so there is a lot of flexibility. The work is interesting. Stock options now go only to directors and above, but the compensation (salary, bonus, ESPP, RSUs) and benefits (insurance, 401K match) are still good.

Cons

Management is more technical than inspirational. The CEO's speeches are soporific. Consultants have been hired to schedule projects and compress schedules. There is little to no dead time to learn or explore. Headcount is kept at a minimum to keep costs down. It's not a sweatshop, but there are days when it feels like one.

No opinion of CEO

    Maxim cares about it's valued employees, the bad press comes from the weak performers that are not coddled.

    Pros

    Financially Strong and Growing. Very well positioned in the market and very highly regarded. In a period of changing the company culture. Overall a very positive place to be.

    Cons

    Salary seems to be average but top performers seem to be getting rewarded better lately. Bonuses are driven by goals which can sometimes be gamed by weaker performers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management needs to be tougher on weak employees and upgrade them whenever possible.

    Increasingly top-heavy. New management is flushing out valuable technical employees and hiring friends and cronies.

    Pros

    Good product line Good benefits.

    Cons

    No real HR. Lacks any culture to foster job security and promote loyalty. Management free for all when it comes to how employees are treated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and reward the people who built the company and who try to keep it strong, despite the new company management.
