    I have been working at Maxim Integrated full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great technology portfolio and smart people

    Cons

    Company has been flat for 4 years now with no growth. Lots of people leaving - esp the recent hires / new blood. Mgmt thinks they can go back to 1995 and the go-go days by just building more products. The best technology doesn't always win. Not a customer driven company. Sales / marketing teams get no respect. Product guys call the shots in culture.

    Advice to Management

    Keep cutting and sell the company to a customer/market driven organization.

  3. Great Innovative Company

    Pros

    Engineers are very creative and passionate. Very fast paced environment, great boss, performance based. You have to love what you do otherwise you are not going to survive. Overall total compensation is competitive.

    Cons

    Sometimes things move slow, the base salary should be more competitive.

    Advice to Management

    We are in too many businesses, focus on the winning products and get rid of losers. Be bold and be aggressive.

    Pros

    Maxim has been a great employer to me for almost 10 years now and great company to work for. Maxim values it's employees and their families, and offers great health and wellness benefits which are very generous and high compared to other companies in the industry. Maxim has also given me the opportunity to get broad experience and expand my skill sets over the years by trying new focus areas in my field to become a well rounded and skilled employee. Maxim continues to offer me new opportunities for advancement and ways to keep my job exciting and new.

    Cons

    Maxim's fast paced environment and propensity to constant changes in the industry/market is not ideal of all types of personalities. Maxim is great for people who can adapt to change easily and enjoy new challenges and fast paced speed.

    Pros

    * Smart colleagues * Nice campus and cafe * Fair compensation package * General attitude that embraces improvement and change * Open to using systems and tools (sometimes too many systems and tools)

    Cons

    * Chronically understaffed * Unrealistic and unattainable expectations * Constant state of chur and fear * All decisions made at highest levels instead of empowering employees to make appropriate decisions at appropriate levels -- really slows things down * Increasingly thick politics

    Advice to Management

    Trust your very smart employees to do the right thing, and listen to them
