    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Very flexible work hours.
    Wide visibility to higher management
    Good place for followers. Don't try to lead any new ideas or activities unless you are told to do so!

    Cons

    Mandated innovation drives that create a lot of work and buzz but no results.
    Promotion via buddy system - often promoting people who are the least capable
    No appreciation for those who push for a better company.
    Little sense of reality - It's 2011 and not 1993!
    Not a place for fresh ideas, unless they come from the top!

    Advice to Management

    Get real. Some of the goals and metrics are ridiculous!
    Go get a MBA or similar so you learn what management means! To us who have seen more mature companies from inside, Maxim does not shine as the most professional managed place.
