    Pros

    Employees are incredibly friendly and the engineers work hard to deliver industry-leading products. Employees get excited about the value that ADI provides.

    Cons

    I would have liked to see more opportunities for cross-departmental socialization. Also, I often heard that people felt like the culture at headquarters was too serious ... but I tend to disagree with that complaint. I thought the culture at headquarters was incredibly friendly and open.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to find ways to reach employees in fun, out-of-the-box ways. I had the sense that employees were always looking for more direction from leadership so that they could do their best work.

    Pros

    Good People. Very Experienced and knowledgeable. Good working environment.

    Cons

    Slow career track. Small Salary increments,

    Advice to Management

    Flow of information should be bidirectional, both from top management to lower levels and vice-versa. Only then the clear picture emerges.

    Pros

    Challenging work, lots of flex-time if not fighting fires. Can easily coast if wanted to as hard work is not appreciated. Newer hires will pick up slack. Longevity and job stability - typically 20+ years is common employment length. As long as you do your time (>10 years), promotions will come, as talent is not a factor.

    Cons

    Covered in red-tape, old boys club. Always thinking of the present only and not the future. Upper management completely disconnected from the reality of the day to day. Engineering talent consumed with powerpoint engineering instead of provided with real resources to make a difference. No chance to grow or advance your career as the positions are held by many folks that just coast. Mid level management perpetuates the problems by spinning the story when issues arise to CYA.

    Advice to Management

    The upper level management (C-Level) continues to describe "innovation" and how the company needs to continue to invent and produce new technologies and ideas. The middle management only pushes the status quo and will not allow engineers to develop ideas as they are always fighting the fires of the day. Get your story straight!
