    Pros

    Among the highest compensation in the business, possibly the best profit sharing anywhere. As in average of 30 to 40%. Work with some of the brightest engineering talent in the world. Design Engineers get to take their product from initial design through production release. Are also held accountable every step of the way, so you need to do more than "design."

    Cons

    Very high pressure / stress atmosphere. Very little positive feedback. Little comeradery, not much in the way of team atmosphere. Work-Life balance nonexistent. Lateral transfers strongly discouraged. Unless you are a workaholic, I advise getting in, making some money and learning what you can, then get out before you take too much damage. I would advise 5 years max, take your sabbatical and use some of the time soul-searching and checking out the job market.

    Advice to Management

    Management does not "take advice."
    If they did I would say find some ways to incorporate even a little bit of team building and work-life balance. It could just pay off financially.
    Update internal procedures / processes to the 21st century. The company has become too large to continue doing things "because we have always done it this way and it works"

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Linear Technology (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    I got a phone interview for this position. The letter mentions it will be all technical problems, including BJT, pn junction, and CMOS. The hiring manager asked very detail on each device, so you must be very familiar with them. The manager will give you some hints if you cannot answer. It takes more than forty minutes on the phone.
