No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Maxim Integrated full-time

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!!

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

    Pros

    Good to work in a large company and learn a lot from many knowledgeable engineers. Engineers there are very nice and helpful. They provide very serious and challenging internship work and also expect interns to take the work serious and be productive.

    Cons

    In my internship duration, I have to do everything including circuit design and software development. Sometimes, it is frustrating to develop software for a circuit designer.
