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

    Pros

    Training, flexibility, broad scope of duties, generous pay for new starters, generous reviews and bonuses.

    Cons

    Slow change in job-title, no travel, while it has a broad scope of what you learn within your position, you don't truly understand what other business departments are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Explain each new task with a scope of overarching importance, relevance, and contribution.

    Pros

    So many very intelligent people, great compensation and amazing benefits

    Cons

    Constant direction changes meant that the vast majority of products designed were not brought to market. I loved the days of saying we released a part a day.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce time to market , have more engineering resources and take more risks.

    Pros

    Some good people work at the company. Not a whole lot to say about the positive aspects of this company

    Cons

    Hostile work environment, and very political. - must be liked by a few people in upper management in order to advance in your career. It’s all about being liked rather than the work you’ve done. Poor communication from upper management. Not a collaborative or team culture.
