    Pros

    great people to work with who are very friendly and helpful. Learning a lot in my current role and enjoying the work life balance that is offered.

    Cons

    culture is very archaic in nature, promotions are hard to get and everything is based on tenure. If you get a good manager you will be ok, if not then dont expect to grow in your career.

    Advice to Management

    Review the promotion strategy as it is very old compared to other innovative companies. Allow people to have a voice more, and not just streamline ideas up the ladder.

    Pros

    There are lots of bright and talented co-workers around. One may learn quite a bit. The senior management of the operation group is truly insightful.

    Cons

    It is not a technology but product company. Senior management of business units is somewhat near-sighted.
    Lack of training, not good for new graduate.

    Advice to Management

    build your own technology moat rather than copying others. Otherwise, the company will never be an industrial leader.

    I have been working at Maxim Integrated full-time

    Pros

    The company went through a major transformation over the past 2 years, and it was hard for all involved. But it feels like things have changed. Since I've been here, I've met the nicest, most hard working people and a CEO and leadership team that demonstrate high integrity, care about employees and want to evolve to be more current and empowering. If you work hard, you can make a difference.

    Cons

    Could use a little more fun! Everyone is very serious and focused and heads down. Systems need to be upgraded for higher productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Congrats - you did the hard work transforming the business, now you have the opportunity to create a best place to work by investing in employees: empower/trust your people, recognize great work, enable work/life integration, be open to new ways, let people get to know you better - all which will build on this really great culture and attract / retain the right talent.
