    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    Not all groups the same, some older support organizations are filled with bureaucracy and outdated systems.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.

    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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Current Employee - Product Applications Engineer  in  Wilmington, MA
    Current Employee - Product Applications Engineer in Wilmington, MA

    Pros

    If 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.

    Cons

    Salary 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 ManagementAdvice

    Structured mentorship programs and career coaching would be valuable.
