    Pros

    Health benefits are good. Coworker are mostly friendly. It satisfies at technical and career development. Flexible working hours and not so tight schedule.

    Cons

    Maxim does not have agreements with MOOC websites like Pluralsight, Udemy, Coursera, etc. No free meals. Under average at compensation.

    Advice to Management

    I wish Maxim to have paid paternal leaving option like Microsoft and Google have. How many times we will have a baby in a lifetime. This should not a big deal.
    Doesnt have Kosher, halal etc meal options and doesnt respect to employees meal preferences...

    Pros

    Free coffee/tea in the break room. Benefits package is better than most, I hear.

    Cons

    Not all supervisors know what is done in the section they supervise, nominal attention afforded to hourly employees, Salaried staff are treated better than hourly. One mistake or have too many years, and it is out the door.

    Advice to Management

    Take to heart the creed established long ago by founder Jack Gifford, not just give it lip service. Work harder to make ONE MAXIM a real concept.

    I worked at Maxim Integrated full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A handful of good people there, coffee, and health benefits?

    Cons

    Extreme politics, butt-kissing, and terrible management at the top in especially production.

    Many people have left this place after new management came to town with their Cheap Labor strategy of flushing out experienced people to bring in lower wage workers. Mandatory OTs because experienced employees found better jobs elsewhere and new temps won't stay. The compensation is terrible and annual reviews is all about favoritism. Supervisors have been shuffled around to different shifts and some of them just quit altogether.

    You won't get a decent wage here and they're so desperate for cheap labor that they're putting hiring signs out on the sidewalk and running radio ads to lure in newbies.

    Advice to Management

    Terminate yourselves and let someone who actually cares about their employees run the company and morale would be so much better!

    Pros

    My coworkers are great. That's the best part of the job. Maxim tends to hire talented people who are also team players.

    Cons

    Management's initiatives have been ineffective. The re-branding, acquisitions, divestitures, layoffs, endless reorgs, etc. have not made much of a difference in the stock price.
