Pros

Great products, lots of oppurtunity to grow, great company performance, a promise of cultural change, world class new building (2012)

Cons

Some senior management has very poor people skills, inconsistent to the culture the CEO or other executives are promoting, negative reinforcement consistent in my department

Advice to Management

check that all departments are motivating good people to stay and avoid political agenda in managing people. This drives good people away from Maxim

    Current Employee - Principal Member of Technical Staff in Greensboro, NC
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good technical knowledge. Able to get designs to market and see results of your work. Flexible holiday schedules. Ability to move to different design centers around the country if you desire.

    Cons

    Upper management rules by whim and engenders fear. Panic mode set in for many groups. Limited cooperation between business units. No motivation for stock appreciation. Designers expected to do design, product engineering, production support, customer support, with little support. Remote design sites shut down suddenly for no apparent reason, and goon squads sent in to manage dismissal.

    Advice to Management

    You are running on a skeleton crew, and many people are ready to burn out. You need to show some loyalty to the employees who have committed to your company.
