    There is a lot of work. You are always busy. Learned alot, everyone is helpful. OK compensation and health benefits. Interesting products, nice building, nice work place.

    Cons

    Some engineers are not competent. No free food, pay is not that great, goes down every year, RSU aware goes down every year, bonus comes down every year, revenue falls every year. Good guys leave, bad guys stay. Some managers just want to do nothing, but move their lips.

    Advice to Management

    UP the RSU award or lose people

    "intense work environment and lean workforce makes for a challenging place to work."

    Smts in Sunnyvale, CA
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Maxim Integrated

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, exposure to many different products, and an intense work environment make for a challenging place to work. Interaction with customers all over the world provide valuable experience in working with different cultures and provide some opportunities for international travel. A 401(k) matching program helps with saving for retirement. Good health care and dental care benefits, and subsidized gym membership are additional perks. Opportunities for advancement within the company exist, and it is relatively easy to change positions within the company if desired. Flexible working hours (within reason, of course) allow employees to avoid peak rush hour. Prior to de-listing, an employee stock purchase program gave employees the chance to purchase company stock at a discount.

    Cons

    An intense work environment and long hours contributes to an imbalance between work and personal life. A lean workforce can lead to burnout. Political infighting impedes progress and sometimes prevents the development of new products that could help grow sales. Nepotism is rampant in some groups, and prior to the former CEOs departure, on the board as well. An ongoing delisting and attempted restatement has dragged on for far too long, and provides needless distraction from growing the business. Too much dead weight exists in some groups, and other groups operate far too lean. Senior management seem to be more concerned with enriching themselves, rather than doing things to benefit all shareholders, including employees who may have stock options and RSUs.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest about the restatement and give a realistic estimate of when the restatement will be complete. Stop the self-enrichment at the shareholders (employees) expense. These actions are more visible than upper management seems to realize and helps reduce morale.
