    I have been working at Maxim Integrated full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great business model and broad technology reach. Good compensation with upside for top performers, great benefits and good facilities. Plenty of learning and development opportunities for those motivated to improve (thousands of eLearning programs, IEEE programs, outside webinars, etc.)

    Cons

    Need more resources for support groups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More aggressive effort to grow revenue.

    I worked at Maxim Integrated as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Manager and his co-workers were extremely helpful
    Exposed to people 3,4 levels up from me
    Had some great lunches with the teams there
    Very friendly co-workers

    Cons

    The fact that there is (see pros) 4 levels of management is of course common at a big company, but eye-opening to myself personally that I wanted to go to a startup

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enjoyed my 8 week project very much, but perhaps break it into two projects so you can take feedback from first and apply it to making second even better!

    I have been working at Maxim Integrated

    Pros

    Top talent gets recognized and hard work is not an option. Everyone at Maxim works long and hard, but compensation is usually consistent with the performance.

    Cons

    Work/home life balance can be hard to balance. Upper management fixed on outsourcing many jobs and functions of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When business is good the company should hold cash to prepare for the slower times rather than always be in a crises management mode. Also need a better method of retaining the top talent.

    Pros

    Very good People. Good medical, dental, 401k, life insurance benefits.

    Cons

    Poor Leadership from CEO and CEO Staff, lack of accountability, bonus differentiation is very weak (very socialistic approach where everyone fits in "boxes"). Very weak HR, QA. Great culture of the past is gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Politics with the Executive Team is not being controlled by CEO. CEO has a blind spot assessing leadership and integrity of others.

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

    Pros

    Really good place to go to gain experience for a couple years, but not a place to stay for a long time. Lots of people are really nice.

    Cons

    Stock has grown at a snails pace, they love to blame their customers for their internal problems. The employee voice is lacking in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop blaming your customers for your poor performance. It really is embarrassing. Tunc- just say you made mistakes and you are fixing them. Accountability is really the best way to go here.
