    Am so glad you are learning a lot - one of Maxim's top priorities this year is around career development, what we're calling "Invest in Yourself." Regarding our cafe food, if you're working at HQ in San Jose, the cafe routinely surveys employees for feedback and suggestions, most recently in February of 2019. If you have ideas/recommendations, please share your feedback at https://www.caferiomaxim.com/contact/. Best regards, Laura Owen Maxim Integrated Chief Human Resources Officer

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Maxim Integrated full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Consistent schedule, reacted to COVID-19 well, cafeteria open 24/7, if you approach engineers with solutions they will listen, you'll be in the best shape of your life if you use proper lifting form and stretch. Good first job, but a year in and you will want to move departments or continue your education. Easy to get days off when you need them.

    Cons

    Long shifts, some micromanagement at times, pay is lower than what I expected having a Bachelor's ChemE degree

    Pros

    Small company so you can cross paths with upper management easily. Millennials have perks involving developing professionally.

    Cons

    Management does not risk on attempting new ideas. Yes, average tenure is high, but that’s because management protect themselves from younger folks performing better by using the number of years at Maxim, instead of technical skills, as a way to promote.
