    Analog can't decide if it wants to be more like Qualcomm or Linear Tech

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThis company still believes in technology, and will continue to fund some research projects. We've also adopted some new tools to improve data based decision making on what projects to fund.

    ConsSimultaneous added bureaucracy and layoffs have hurt the culture. New middle managers want to generate more revenue by demanding it from the thin workforce. Segment teams are not clearly a glowing success.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAre your workers happy? Engaged? Company surveys don't tell the whole story.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Used to be a great place, still has some great people, management needs direction

    Product Engineer (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

    Pros90% of people are great, very professional and smart. Good products. Decent benefits. Good work-life balance. Decent pay. Open to career moves within the company.

    ConsManagement seems to have no clear direction. Bad managers and low performers are not dealt with. Too much politics often gets in the way of successful product releases. Poor or no communication between upper management and the rest of the company, even amongst themselves.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRe-evaluate people in management and align them where you want the company to be. Acknowledge top performers and remove bottom performers.
