I have been working at Maxim Integrated full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Super smart co-workers. Fantastic management in the Mobility Business Unit. Love the new headquarters in San Jose. Team is friendly, happy, up-beat, inclusive and very capable. Products are cool. Innovation happens all the time, every day. Cafeteria food if great. On-site gym. Great benefits, aggressive growth compensation strategy: heavy on profit sharing (RSUs) and bonuses.

Cons

Commute home in evening is slow.

Advice to Management

Keep innovating. The corporate culture in the business unit is the best I have experienced.

    I have been working at Maxim Integrated full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, they still provide two family based special events including a spread at Christmas time. Provide quarterly bonuses.

    Cons

    Unless you have an obscene amount of educational titles after your name you can be expected to be treated like office furniture with absolutely no hope of rising to a management position. There is no amount of time or company experience they will accept. They will hire from the outside before they will promote from within. Annual reviews do not give more than 3% raise no matter what and that is only if you preform perfectly. This is barely enough to cover tax increases and not enough to cover cost of living increases. Recognition for achievements in the company is reserved strictly for engineers. The managers do not recognize any support staff as being necessary and has said so.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone should have a chance to advance, EVERYONE. Just because your employee spent the last ten years of their life working for you instead of passing classes does not mean they are not perfectly capable of advancing to higher positions. Especially when they have already proved that they can do that position.
