Intern during summer

Applications Engineer (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

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

ProsEngineers there are very read to help any entry level students and I can get familiar with the skills needed in a short time. The company has a very flexible time schedule so that sometimes you can relax a little bit but just remember the due date!

ConsI do not like the transportation system although the employees can take the trains for free. It is better to have your own car.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A testament of endurance and complaisance of your goals and aspirations.

Engineering (Current Employee)
Beaverton, OR

I have been working at Maxim Integrated full-time for more than 5 years

ProsOrganizational culture and values in place aim to personal and company growth. Maintains and manufactures old simplified technologies with established demand. Drives innovation through improving on existing working model technologies which makes for job security.

ConsSome management groups lack knowledge and experience to effectively lead projects. Incredible mismanagement of company financial resources in what seems to be learn on the job tactics rather than following simple industry standards. Experience, knowledge, overall contribution for the better good of the company and safety of its employees are perceived as a threat by management if not derived from own thoughts.

Advice to Senior ManagementAccept advice from the pool of knowledge available within company. Empower, and reward employees through recognition of their accomplishments. Do not repackage employee's valuable advise and take credit for it as your own to your superiors.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Low morale-dead end place to work

Fab Operator (Current Employee)
Beaverton, OR

I have been working at Maxim Integrated full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe manufacturing operators work a very demanding fab, it's not boring
Good place to learn the industry
Good health care benefits

ConsPay is very low. The only people who make a wage that is somewhat reasonable are people who have been there 10+years. Raises are small and with little difference between average and high achievers. Reviews are a joke, more designed to weed out the low end than to motivate the high achievers. With a needs improvement score you get a write up. With a exceptionable score you get the attitude of it's expected. Morale is terrible. Smart people keep silent rather than offer constructive criticism because they know it's the best coarse to follow. Speak up and it will be remembered-forever. Upper management is old school and very out of touch with the operator levels. Minimal availability of advancement

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to appreciate people who deserve it and mentor (not threaten) people who need improvement. Show recognition to people who work hard with the same effort as poor performers are documented

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Disappointing

Supply Chain Analyst (Former Employee)
Farmers Branch, TX

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

ProsPaychecks didn't bounce at the bank.

ConsCareer ambitions are denied by management. The happy things stated as company policy are not delivered to employees by management

Advice to Senior ManagementSeek employment elsewhere. Neither is your back safe.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Used to be a great company but has changed.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Maxim Integrated

ProsUsed to be a very aggressive cutting edge company but took good care of its people. The company culture has changed. Employees are disposable.

ConsSeems more focused on downsizing. Morale is low. Management is top heavy. The is not much future in the company. It has lost its edge.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake better care of your people.

ProsThe people you work with on a day to day basis at Maxim are great. I have met many good IT and Business co workers who have been here many years.

ConsUpper Management has unrealistic expectations. The Maxim way of life is eat, sleep, breath Maxim and there is no room for anything else.

Applications Engineer

Applications Engineer (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

I have been working at Maxim Integrated full-time for more than a year

ProsCompany makes good products and has a very motivating culture. Provides you relevant training material and online classes to excel at the job.

ConsDon't like the model of evaluating employees. Not everyone in the group can get a high evaluation score which affects the yearly bonus.

Advice to Senior ManagementShould re-focus on evaluation of annual review. It's discouraging that average of the group score should be maintained across the company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
