    I worked at Analog Devices as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Smart people, nice co-workers. I worked at Analog for just under two years and enjoyed my experience with my co-workers the most.

    Cons

    Large corporation and drab office environment. Working at Analog means working in a sea of dull, gray cubes. I also had a bad manager which soured much of my experience at Analog. They wanted to bring me on as a full-time employee, yet that meant bringing my laptop home and working after hours, so I remained as a contractor since it benefited me more.

    Good Company to work for, but the highest level of management are white collar crooks.

    I worked at Analog Devices full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Their technical work is very interesting. The people are great to work with. The pay is pretty good. There is plenty of opportunity for developing skills, once you get your work done.

    Cons

    If you don't have a ring from MIT, you are looked down upon. There is never any chance, even temporarily, to put yourself first, however, when it come to personal or professional development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a career discussion with your employees. And don't ask the employees to make a sacrifice, such as taking a 10% salary cut, while the CEO pockets $53 million.

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

    I have been working at Analog Devices full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    This 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.

    Cons

    Simultaneous 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 ManagementAdvice

    Are your workers happy? Engaged? Company surveys don't tell the whole story.

    I have been working at Analog Devices full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    90% 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.

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

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