    Pros

    Love it. Designers are very smart and good to work for. No politics, no games, no bulls***. Management focuses on high value, long life, high performance parts and has a long view. What a refreshing change from other short-sighted tech companies! Yes, there have been shutdowns but it sure beats getting laid off or working insane hours like most other companies handle downturns. A very broad based product line is also a pleasure to work with, it means there is no such thing as one big stumble that kills the company. I've learned a lot here and never want to leave.

    Cons

    None. This is as good as it gets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up guys, I want to retire from LTC.

    Pros

    Experienced colleagues, profit sharing, partial reimbursement for education, well-managed 401k.

    Cons

    No complaints. The company is well-managed and the people are good. There have been layoffs in the past, but the work force is stronger today because of that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at Linear Technology full-time

    Pros

    This is a great place to work. The focus is on making the best product and offering the best support. Financially, profit sharing twice a year and sabbaticals every five years help to make this a great place to work.

    Cons

    Since this is a great place to work and it seems that few people leave, at times it may be difficult to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't retire.

    I have been working at Linear Technology full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company is very conservatively run with predictable and stable performance even in tough economic times as these. Highly intelligent, capable, and experienced R&D/factory engineers interface with industry-best global field sales teams. Business units and shallow internal hierarchy fosters easier inter- and intradepartmental cooperation.

    Cons

    Base compensation is sub-par, sometimes leading to lowered morale & motivation. Benefits and amenities are seen as mediocre, with the occasional accusation of the company being "cheap" at the expense of comfort and even functionality.

    I have been working at Linear Technology

    Pros

    Great place to learn integrated circuit design from one of the most experienced companies in the field. Very little bureaucracy to contend with.

    Cons

    Prone to industry ups and downs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To expand product scope to new markets that may be a bit outside core competencies and look at designing higher level products that can go direct to consumers in addition to b2b products.

    Former Employee - Design Engineer
    Former Employee - Design Engineer

    I worked at Linear Technology

    Pros

    Exceptional talent. Good networking. A lot of collaboration by way of walking around and chatting about circuits, techniques etc. Not a lot of micromanaging. Fairly efficiently run company. Excellent compensation, especially in the form of bonuses.

    Cons

    Sometimes frugality made the job challenging. Linear used to have a lack of desire in wanting to spend the extra buck on software packages or equipment. They have improved on this over the years. This frugality also led to innovation (a pro) where engineers had to be clever to circumvent whatever shortcomings they had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In general, the management is well run. It was nice that most of the management team was once on the engineering side.
