    Ethics Questionable

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsA good company for one tour of duty, 4-5 years. Learn about analog technology, get an advanced degree and then move on. ADI is still a good brand to include in work history for now. ADI has a great legacy.

    ConsPolicies and procedures are not followed consistently. HR may loose files, employees may be given bogus reviews, bad managers may be reassigned for their loyalty. Employees may find themselves in a political quagmire with no recourse. Caveat emptor.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManage for the long term as well as the short term. Reinstitute 5yr outlooks in the annual planning process.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A very good compmay for retiring people

    Senior Design Engineer (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsADI is a very laid-back company and it treats bad people very good.

    Cons30% of the people supporting the other 70% of people in the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat the good people good.

    Fly by the seat of your pants

    Senior Quality Engineer (Former Employee) Wilmington, MA

    ProsWhen business is good, the bonuses are awesome.

    ConsWhen business weakens, bonuses are almost nil, and furloughs become common. Vacation time can be used for furlough, but when that runs out so does your salary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMiddle management is stretched so thin that their personnel are not given job criteria/expectations until one is criticized for not knowing.

    great technology, poor management

    Test Development Engineer (Former Employee) Wilmington, MA

    ProsGreat technical environment, technology savvy staff, highly professional and inteligent engineers. The best engineers in the semiconductor industry you can work with. work life balance is good, not many overtime, annual GTC meeting is good for technical growth and exposure.

    ConsManagement team is the worst I have ever seen, Little feedback, lack of promotion transparency. Old fashioned business style and hirearchy. Gen X and Y may have trouble to fit in a depressed environment.
    Overal, you will be thrilled by your job and co-worker and will feel depressed by the management.

    Advice to Senior Managementtop mgr don't value business training which is exactly they need such MBA or organizational behaviour courses. A good engineer does not automaticly qualify for a manager position.

    Good benefits; Poor internal communication

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPay and benefits are good. The company has money and knows how to manage it. Diversified product line helps during recessions.

    ConsInternal communication is poor most of the time; vague at best. Company can be slow moving strategically.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat us like big people, and communicate with us. Listening more would help too.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Thoughts of a 12 year employee.

    Senior Engineer (Current Employee) Wilmington, MA

    ProsCompany remains profitable during hard times. Layoffs have been held to a minimum over the years.

    ConsLimitted opportunities for promotion. Benefits are below average and getting worse.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet competitive or you'll loose your talent when things turn up. Reward the talent, even it is just a pat on the back.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Limited chance for Advancement

    Product Engineer (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsThere are still a lot of brilliant engineers at Analog. They are very good at minimizing layoffs and cut backs. Very good 401(k)

    ConsTwenty years ago, Analog was the leader and other semis looked to what we were doing and imitated us. Now we are to scared to take calculated risks and be the leaders of the industry. We wait to see what everybody else is doing and get in line with them. (especially in regards to compensation)

    Not a lot of excitement. The type of personality that thrives at Analog is one that doesn't like change and just cares about getting a steady paycheck. They're willing to let their career be stagnant in exchange for that job security and steady paycheck.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLead the industry instead of following it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
