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

Pros

Still lots of great products and talent from the Jack days. Big worldwide footprint. Nice new buidlings and reasonable equipment. Pay and benefits seem competitive

Cons

Acquisitions continue to underperform with no turnaround in sight. Heavy nepotism and cronyism in senior management. Counterproductive reorgs and layoffs every 18~24 months. Moral at rock bottom

Advice to Management

No more acquisitions. Start divesting them to rebuild the balance sheet. Stop reorging other than slowly and humanely eliminating the centralized organizations which are hampering the BU's.

    "Maxim would be a great company to work for if we didn't constantly have to worry about our jobs. Moral is horrible"

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

    Pros

    Decent pay, bonus and RSU compensation. Flexible work schedule and new buildings in three U.S. locations.

    Cons

    Lots of turnover due to offshoring and micromanagement. Too many chiefs and not as many indians with the recent RIFs. Moral is very low and has been that way for at least 5 years now. RIFs every quarter are the norm these days.

    Advice to Management

    You need to take care of your core assets, the people that helped turn Maxim into a 2 billion dollar company. The overall moral throughout the company is horrible and may do not believe in the current CEO, just check his approval rating on this site.
