    I worked at Analog Devices full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good products for the most part. Most of the people are wonderful to work with. Decent benefits. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Layoffs every year to the point that you are watching over your shoulder for the other shoe to drop. And it always does. Too many Chiefs and not enough Indians. Poor communication between upper management and the rest of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the good ideas of your employees. And put them into action. Share some of those super inflated upper management salaries with the rest of the people actually making you look good.

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

    Former Employee - Test Development Engineer in Wilmington, MA

    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.

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

    Pros

    Great culture and focus on continuous improvement. Good work / life balance/

    Cons

    Not all groups the same, some older support organizations are filled with bureaucracy and outdated systems. Attempts are being made to improve but its slow going.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Firm up on identifying the poor performers and removing them. Its too difficult to address these issues under the current HR policies and procedures.
