    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

    I worked at Maxim Integrated full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    If you think that whatever doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger (I don’t think so in the case of this employer for PC-Tech

    Cons

    Hi turnover for PC-Techs, contract for only a year with no hire (per upper management, higher than IT’s VP), treat contractors like crap(can’t use the gym, no holiday party, can’t attend the all hands meetings and more, manager doesn’t listen to his employees, it’s all “us as a team” until manager gets upset then it’s “you guys”, manager doesn’t know how to talk to people, manager is two faced. I am not exaggerating, about all 10 Techs that left within the past year would agree and have agreed with me. There are currently six techs supporting 1400 employees! There’s no efficiency when as soon as someone knows what they are doing, they are terminated and you have to train new techs to eventually replace you. I’ve heard that California law says after one year of employment a contractor has to be hired or terminated. My team was continuously rolled over to different contracting agencies to avoid hiring PC Techs full time. When questioned by HR, PC Techs started getting terminated to avoid converting to full time employees. The whole team was frustrated and all of the Techs say the current manager is terrible.

    I worked at Maxim Integrated full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Free coffee/tea in the break room. Benefits package is better than most, I hear.

    Cons

    Not all supervisors know what is done in the section they supervise, nominal attention afforded to hourly employees, Salaried staff are treated better than hourly. One mistake or have too many years, and it is out the door.
