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

    Pros

    Maxim projects a great work environment where employees really enjoy interacting with one another and making work less of a hassle while still maintaining a professional atmosphere.

    Cons

    Compensation was less than expected and at times I felt as though my full potential was not being completely utilized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I received a general feel that the younger employees were disappointed with their compensation and many left for other companies due to this reason. I would advise management to increase compensation or institute a new benefits program for their younger employees.

    I worked at Maxim for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I use to work here back in the 2000's. It was a great place to work, people were good to work with, very laid back.

    Cons

    Extremely poor upper management. Maxim and it's other magazines got bought out by capital management firm and it went completely downhill. They tried to bring in all these morons from print media and it went to crap. They didn't know what they were doing,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to hire has-beens from print media backgrounds.

    I worked at Maxim full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A lot of responsibility early. Smart, funny coworkers. Good working environment.

    Cons

    Poor pay, poor management, poor overall business strategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring old media personalities thinking they'll save the magazine. Focus on the web or you're doomed.
