    Pros

    Maxim provides competitive pay and benefits. I have had the opportunity to move around to a few different groups to add different skills to my skill set.

    Cons

    Management does a great job of seeing the big picture, but often, the decisions from high up, end up adversely affecting those who are forced to change groups, relocate, or get laid off.

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

    Pros

    The physical plant is very nice. The cafeteria and gym at HQ are both great. It is possible to have work life balance

    Cons

    Company has shown no growth in past 5 years. Hard to believe reorgs will fix this. Company has made multiple acquisitions that didn't work out. Repeated layoffs have impacted morale. Many groups work in silos and don't communicate. Upper management may be great engineers, but they have minimal leadership abilities.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on revenue growth, not on short term quarterly profits. Hold senior execs accountable for results.

    Pros

    layoff happens twice a year which hurt people's feeling. Well, I guess it tried to please stock holders. Too many managers but it started to cut them too now.

    Cons

    Good business and products. Good and safe working environment. Very good bonus and stock dividend, so are the total income. I enjoyed working there.

    Pros

    Smart people, good engineers. Those who can't pull their weight don't last.

    Cons

    Vacations and weekends are not respected, people are always expected to be available.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication. News and updates tend to happen via rumor rather than direct messaging. Establish goals for a work/life balance.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment and great benefits.

    Cons

    The company did not seem to place value on employees. They demand a lot and stretch employees too thin. Too much work and not enough peoples to do the job due to frequent lay offs.

    Advice to Management

    All top layer of senior management needs to be replaced
