    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.

    I worked at Maxim Integrated as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great company to work with, good values and it provides innovative solutions.

    Cons

    Executive management should work better with mid-level management, there is a bit of a disconnect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognition for the low level employees who work very hard to make management look good. More perks for low level employees.

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

    Pros

    Very strong Company. Good financial stability, and great people to work with. There have been many positive changes in the past few years. Beautiful new San Jose campus, and facilities upgrades in most global offices, focused effort on employee engagement and development, new training programs offered, and great benefits. The company appreciates employees who take initiative and produce results.

    Cons

    Making the necessary changes to invest in the right products has resulted in some office closures. Culture is a con if you don't like a fast paced environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work on development of managers and communications to keep everyone in the loop on key activities. Acquisitions that will add short term to our revenue.

    Pros

    Engineers 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!

    Cons

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