    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.

    Pros

    Organizational 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.

    Cons

    Some 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 ManagementAdvice

    Accept 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.

    Pros

    Very nice, new campus. Good IT support. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Some technical staff in the labs are hostile. Every month either a manager or director changes. Constant restructuring. Brutal, very unstable company in terms of laying masses off unlike in old days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of laying off junior and mid-level technical staff, try to utilize them in other BUs since they are cheaper and easier to train.

    Pros

    Paychecks didn't bounce at the bank.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek employment elsewhere. Neither is your back safe.

    Current Employee - Fab Operator  in  Beaverton, OR
    Current Employee - Fab Operator in Beaverton, OR

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Pay 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 ManagementAdvice

    Learn 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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Seems 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 ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of your people.

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

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