Processed silicon wafers through chemical baths in the computer chip making process.
Process Specialist (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXOctober 30, 2017
Processed silicon wafers through chemical baths in the computer chip making process.
Ran chemical "sinks" which utilize robots and pre-programmed movements to submerge silicon wafers in different chemicals between other processes during the manufacturing process.
Kept track of inventory and where inventory needed to be sent after processing.

Management is the problem here
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) –  Beaverton, OROctober 25, 2017
The people that work here are great, however, the management style of the company seemed chaotic. Management was slow to act and often confused about what was happening within the company. The pay was below standard and turnover was high.

Employee (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAOctober 11, 2017
The workplace culture at Maxim can be summed up by their annually events they do for the employees at each major location yearly. These events take a ton of work and really show the employees that the company not only values them but also their families.

Productive and exciting worplace
Wafer Fab Technician (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CASeptember 20, 2017
Productive and continuous work load for and R & D Fab. I've learned almost all processes in wafer fabrication. Managers, Engineers, & supervisors/ lead person get along with each others. Workplace culture is exciting and challenging at the same time. Hardest part of the job is working night shift, however, I enjoy working with my co-employees.
Pros
Benefits were good.

none

The stress will end up slowly killing you.
Fabrication Technician (Former Employee) –  Beaverton, ORAugust 13, 2017
Management sucks. Raises suck (if they actually give them). One of the big bosses is sexist so that sucked. It's near impossible to move up in rank. If you just keep your head down and do the mind numbingly repetitive work, you'll be fine. Don't go abound and beyond because you won't be rewarded, they'll just come to expect that kind of work from you all the time.
Pros
Paycheck and benefits
Cons
Sexism, racism, favoritism

anonymous (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAJuly 22, 2017
Maxim Integrated has great intelligent people, a safe campus, and a culture that promotes and supports an active lifestyle. There are many great tools and resources available for you to learn and cross train at work. Too many middle management layers and not enough individual contributors.
Pros
safe campus, intelligent people
Cons
salaries are not competitive

This company is poorly managed and low wages.
Fab Technician (Former Employee) –  Beaverton, ORJune 8, 2017
As a Fab Technician level 1 at this Beaverton plant for several years and never got a bump up to any higher level even with my solid reviews/performance. Compensation is far from competitive, being low and it stays low unless you're good at sucking up to the supervisors. Cheap wages is what they're going for and you're expendable because they'll just hire anyone off the streets to replace you. The culture is full of politics and favoritism. The supervisors either keep getting switch around to different shifts or they just quit altogether due to their dissatisfaction with their manager.
Pros
compressed shift having weekends off
Cons
low wages, politics, management play favorites
