    Cons

    - Has gotten way to political
    - Redundant middle management layers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The board really need to wake up and understand that Maxim is underperforming compared to its competitors. Action needs to be taken.

    I have been working at Maxim Integrated full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay is somewhat fair, depending on the group. The medical benefits are good. They are involved in the community.

    Cons

    This company used to be like a family. Layoffs are constant, which leaves you feeling uneasy and uncertain about the future. More layoffs happened today. (12/4/2014)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop sending US jobs over seas. It would be good business sense if the talent were 1-1 and not 4-1. Why would you hire more people for the same dollars? Shouldn't the quality of employee be such that one person could do the same work as one US citizen and cost 1/4 of the US citizen? Instead you're hiring four people to do the same work as one US employee. That's not good business sense.

    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.

    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

    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

    Pros

    Facilities, Cafeteria, Location, Coworkers, Broad array of products

    Cons

    Work culture is terrible,virtually zero appreciation, Middle management style is not to motivate but to intimidate, Company values are lip service only and are not real values that the management believes in. Middle management has most autocratic management style probably in entire silicon valley. Authority and responsibility do not go hand in hand. No career path for 99.9 percent of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Live the values, don't just give lip service to them.
