    I worked at Maxim Integrated full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salary, benefits and equipment. Overall, they build a good product. They know every business units' profit and loss. They are a public company.

    Cons

    Upper management is very ignorant of what individual business units are really doing. They are very focused on short term profits. They measure everything.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on long term goals and profits. Do not downsize workforce at the beginning of each and every single 2nd quarter.

    I worked at Maxim Integrated full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    good technology, solid legacy products, solid industry reputation.

    Cons

    Opportunity for personal growth limited, has become political internally. Upper management disconnected from lower levels. To many slogans. Decisions made in a vacuum without consulting the management most affected. The top level management level has had a chaotic last year with many of them leaving and many new hires made outside the company. They are searching to establish a long lasting culture and seem to want to distance themselves greatly from the past roots. The recent change in logo is an example and it looks like an eye chart. The company is still full of good people however in its past it had one of the best concentrations of talent in the valley.

    Advice to Management

    Look beyond your personal ambitions and build sustainable value.
