Pros

Maxim has its share of exceptional engineers and a diverse mix of products. You can work on radio frequency chips or on battery management chips. It uses it own fabs and processes but also uses outside foundries when needed, so there is a lot of flexibility. The work is interesting. Stock options now go only to directors and above, but the compensation (salary, bonus, ESPP, RSUs) and benefits (insurance, 401K match) are still good.

Cons

Management is more technical than inspirational. The CEO's speeches are soporific. Consultants have been hired to schedule projects and compress schedules. There is little to no dead time to learn or explore. Headcount is kept at a minimum to keep costs down. It's not a sweatshop, but there are days when it feels like one.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Always something to work on or calibrate, daily routines and co-workers that bonds to achieve a common goal which makes the environment very pleasant!

    Cons

    Not to mention any particular group, a couple of people poison the area of operations to the point that they use DRAMA to mask their laziness.

    Advice to Management

    A piece of advice from a hard-working, multi-fnctional,multi-area, well proven equipment specialist who would do anything for the greater good of the company, remove the sour apples that's beginning to rotten the whole basket before there is no one is at your table at the market!
