I have been working at Maxim Integrated full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Mostly good people, very interesting technology, people work hard. Much more organized than before. Fast-paced.

Cons

Seems to be betting very political. Hard work isn't always rewarded. Good people are not treated well. Poor middle and upper management with lack of vision. The focus is on short term profits. Good technology is being milked, with limited investment in advancing the state of art. Competition is catching up.

Advice to Management

Treat people better. Be serious about investing in technology if you're serious about maintaining margins.

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

    Pros

    Challenging work environment working with much older tools to run state of the art technology.

    Cons

    Low head counts, not enough maintenance personnel or parts, senior managment only interested in the bottom line even at the expense of their employees. For example, raises are once a year and do not even meet the cost of living increases. Premiums for health care go up and the coverage goes down. NO STOCK RSU's or options for non-slaried personnel but given to others. 3% quarterly bonus based on quarterly base salary and five metrics.. about $30 average.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your number one assists, your experienced employees, better. One can not buy a new cell phone or car or something with a MAXIM chip in it if he/she has to spend it on health care or living expenses instead. Invest some of your millions of dollars of profits on your employees and not on buying more businesses.

    Pros

    Can't think of any pros.

    Cons

    Majority of new college hires are linked to Maxim Executives. Let's give one example. In the most successful mobility Business Unit, there are 5 executive kids hired in the last two years. Guess what? There are 7 execs in the BU! It's not different for interns or new hires in other BUs. All info is public. Go to linkedin to check for yourself!

    Hiring your executive's kids, instead of hiring top talent! Nice job Maxim

    Advice to Management

    Hire best talent! Not your kids! Promote meritocracy, not nepotism!!
