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

    Pros

    Coworkers are results oriented and willing to assist and share information whenever asked. Projects are interesting and challenging. Overall the company is stable.

    Cons

    At times it seems that management has lost focus on end results and puts too much value on intermediate metrics which can be manipulated. I believe their intentions are in the right place, but often they miss the mark.

    Advice to Management

    Look past the metrics, bean counting and HR recommendations and focus on whether we are getting where we want to be. And don't bother spinning the results. Employees are smart and will see the truth.

    Ease up on the IRR calculations and get back to taking more risk

    Pros

    competitive pay, good location, smart co-workers

    Cons

    Only the extreme end of upper management has decision making authority. My senior VP had to approve a $5k travel plan. I spent more time justifying projects and my time than actually working on projects.

    Advice to Management

    Your NPI cycle and manufacturing improvements would be cut in half if you would trust director level employees to actually make decisions that involve expenditures.

    I worked at Maxim Integrated full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I did like the 4 days on 3 days off, 3 days on and 4 days off schedule. I liked having full coverage health insurance: medical, eye, and dental. And times they offered dollar for dollar match for 401k.

    Cons

    Too many chiefs and not enough Indians (or way too many managers and none of them could agree on what the correct thing was to do). The pay raises we miniscule for operators. Sometimes only 10 cents or at the most 25 cent raises per year! How is anyone supposed to account for cost of living expenses that grow exponentially every year on a 25 cent raise?!

    Advice to Management

    If you treat your employees like they are valuable assets, they will enjoy working for you. Not only that, their loyalty will grow and you'll have employees that want to stay with your company for the long haul. But that requires you giving them raises that are befitting to both their efforts and cost of living.
