    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

    Overall, well run company with great technology and products.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFocused on serving customers and developing the best products. Improved focus on technical and market leadership. Excellent work-life balance.

    ConsProduct decisions can take longer than needed. Improve message on technical and market direction with clarity throughout the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen more on a day to day basis to all employees. Do not rely solely on broad surveys and direct managers' feedback.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Challenging and flexible

    Product Applications Engineer (Current Employee) Wilmington, MA

    ProsIf you can find yourself a spot in the right group, there are plenty of opportunities for learning, challenging yourself, and contributing. Some great engineers, products, and markets that ADI works with. Most groups are pretty flexible in terms of work hours and vacation time.

    ConsSalary growth is pretty slow, but they have other good benefits. Top heavy management so there isn't always room for upward career growth in the organization. Vacation time offered is not competitive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStructured mentorship programs and career coaching would be valuable.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
