    Pros

    Really technical, great analog/digital/mix-signal designer on the site. For broadening your technical horizon, it's definitely worth speeding a few years in Maxim

    Stingy. Usually, you won't get much pay compared to average industrial standard. Other benefits are less also.

    Have more team-building activities. Have more benefits for employees.

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

    Pros

    Good pay and stock option program. Probably a good place to be an analog IC designer.

    Cons

    Arcane bonus formula with no apparent linkage between the payout and achieving planned objectives. Poor product definition process leads to releasing products customers don't buy. Managers are graded on the number of products released, not for releasing successful products.

    Advice to Management

    Get a better understanding of what's needed to engage in the embedded microcontroller market.

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

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

    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...
