Maxim was named One of the Best Places to Work by San Jose Magazine in 2008. Employee events include holiday parties, summer picnics, Halloween costume contests, and after-work and lunchtime sporting activities.
The company also encourages employees to get involved in local community activities including blood drives, charity collection drives and the Race for the Cure.
The company’s founder, Jack Gifford, created 13 principles that employees should live by. They include: Don’t accept the status quo, question everything and everybody; try as hard as you can; work as a team; and give credit, don’t plagiarize.
