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

    Pros

    I did a summer internship with this company. I had a very enjoyable and educational experience. My mentors were great and taught me a lot of both technical and non-technical things. Interns get access to most of the software and resources that the full-time engineers had so I was able to learn and contribute in a meaningful way. The company also offered intern events and activities, which were great for getting to know other interns and people in the company.

    Cons

    Some of the full-time engineers (depending on the group) had very poor work-life balance. Some things could have been better organized.

    Pros

    Maxim Integrated ebbs and tides with the economic patterns and remain ahead of the curve. The work environment is conducive to growth and in keeping with the continued consumer demand for ever increasing technological advances. The people make this company the success it is today and the company focuses on retention with great benefits packages.

    Cons

    Maxim has of late began to understand the need to equip with more modern tool sets. However, this change may bring the company to its knees in it late arrival to this industry standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maxim Integrated has a responsibility to keep its fingers on the pulse of market and the demand for fresh ideas.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for personal growth and gaining new skill sets through putting on lots of different hats. Challenging work.

    Cons

    People seemed overworked, there's too much to do for each person. For those who have been here many years, can be stuck in meetings for the entire day.

    I have been working at Maxim Integrated full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The "in the office" culture makes it a comfortable 9 to 5 job.

    Cons

    The company is struggling to make it a great place to work. Many of my peers, including myself, lack a sense of engagement and loyalty to Maxim. The work environment in San Jose is somewhat sterile. People are asked to keep their voices down, not take phone calls at their desks and conform to specific model. Creative, out-of-the-box thinkers struggle at Maxim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in touch with what other companies, especially in the Bay Area, are offering employees or prospective employees in terms of a full package which goes well beyond monetary or benefits compensation.

    I worked at Maxim Integrated full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Stock payouts / Options, decent cafe, everything is in one building, work-out space on-site. Friendly, smart co-workers

    Cons

    volatile, job-insecure, management doesn't comprehend your capabilities. layoffs are common, "leave-the-fun-at-home attitude". Each department has it's own budget, but often forgets important updates to IT

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the consumer market, you did great with the commercial / military market. Bring more employee central activities in-house. Encourage alternative fuel-vehicles. Offer free Light Rail access and free on-site cafe. Make Maxim a destination, not a transit lounge.
