    Pros

    Lots of innovation going on at Maxim. If engaged with the right business units and the customers are large enough to receive support there are exciting opportunities to be had

    Cons

    Difficult to receive support on smaller opportunities. Business Units often occasionally promoting products that are just conceptual and have little chance of being developed into a product

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to provide the field team with necessary tools and resources to perform jobs effectively. Limit the amount of customer exposure to vaporware.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Lots creative and intelligent designers. Most people are friendly and nice working environment.

    Cons

    It used to be a great place to work for. Lost focus in past several years. Also, lost employees' loyalty due to uncertainty caused from every 6-month layoff activity.

    Pros

    Management making good changes recently, getting back to basics.

    Cons

    Frequent re-orgs are hurting company morale.

    Advice to Management

    Company morale is low, please stop with the re-orgs already. Good people are leaving (or worse, laid off), the people that are staying are probably because they have fewer options outside of Maxim.

    Pros

    Great learning platform for starting your career. High level of responsibility and autonomy. Employees have the opportunity to take on value-add projects to gain management exposure. Not expected to work more than 48 hrs/week.

    Cons

    Pay is in-line at best. Company is quite rigid and having a hard time modernizing itself in terms of structure, procedure, and most importantly culture, along with retaining younger talent. A lot of old-school semiconductor minds bent on cutting costs and boosting margins at the expense of improving IT, Marketing, Supply Chain Management, Customer Support, Sales and other functions that will ultimately help the company grow it's market share and revenue and run more effectively. IT, Supply Chain, and Customer Service are grossly under-resourced. Very much a engineering-first company that makes best in class products but doesn't always deliver them to it's customers on time because of the formerly listed reasons. Promotions are not as merit-based as they should be - a lot of other factors such as age/seniority get in the way.

    Advice to Management

    Move away from risk-averse entrenchment and truly start acting boldly as company motto states.
