    I worked at Maxim Integrated full-time

    Pros

    The paycheck, 401K, medical benefits

    Cons

    Can't work from home, not good about taking your earned vacation off, micromanagement, not empowered to make decisions, inconsistent communication, way too much nepotism, undervalued, top heavy management, only 7 paid holidays per year, and we used to have only 4 until recently. Once they increased the holidays they cut back our vacation pay. It really was not an increase of anything. Most companies get 10-11 paid holidays Do not recommend working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask the employee what work style works for them, do not expect them to have the same work style as management. If they are getting the work done and meeting deadlines then let them continue with their style. Find better qualified managers.

    Pros

    Great benefits package. Working with extremely brilliant talented people. Nice buildings

    Cons

    Worked long hours to completing projects with old outdated tools int name of cost effectiveness. Jobs could have been done faster and money could have saved by using up to date tools including tool cost. They have a lot of people that spend their whole day trying to get other people to do their work. Instead of spending less time just doing the work. No planing always in a panic mode. No job too hard if you can assign it to.some one else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Infected with a cover your rear syndrome. Can not seem to learn from others mistakes. The company is expanding at too fast a rate. Wastes money on infrasture it will be closing in a few years

    Pros

    There is a lot of work. You are always busy. Learned alot, everyone is helpful. OK compensation and health benefits. Interesting products, nice building, nice work place.

    Cons

    Some engineers are not competent. No free food, pay is not that great, goes down every year, RSU aware goes down every year, bonus comes down every year, revenue falls every year. Good guys leave, bad guys stay. Some managers just want to do nothing, but move their lips.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    UP the RSU award or lose people
