    I worked at Analog Devices as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    The culture at Analog Devices is very open and inviting. Most of the engineers I worked with were very helpful whenever I had questions about specific projects I was working on at the time.

    There weren't tight constraints placed on employees when it came to accounting for working hours and the management was very flexible in the event of emergencies and needing to take time off. Accumulation of vacation time was a slow process but you start off with 3 weeks as a new hire.

    I worked as an intern, but after my seventeen months of non-consecutive "rotations" at the company, I felt very well educated on the projects I worked and felt strong connections to some of my fellow employees.

    Cons

    Despite the flexibility of the management, I found myself at a loss for how to progress during certain stages of a project. My manager was often very busy with his own work and had little time to train me or give me direction on who to talk to in order to solve the problems I was dealing with at the time.

    Over the years I worked off and on as an intern, I saw the same faces in the same positions with only horizontal "promotions" and shifting employees around into different groups. Recently, a corporate restructure took place that left several employees in groups and positions they were unfamiliar with and unskilled in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since the group sizes are often relatively small, encourage more face-time between management and employees to catalyze growth of the worker and ensure a level of comfort with the type of work currently assigned.

    I worked at Analog Devices

    Pros

    Tighten staff and projects to pursue volume growth. New leadership to put business above technology will bring short term profits.

    Cons

    Lose diversity in projects and some talented staff. Long term profits may be sacrificed because the resources were cut. People may leave to seek for new opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    High end products with high growth margin are always the key for high profits. However, the volume growth is always low. Without low end products at low prices, volume growth is hard to achieve.

    Former Employee - Applications Engineer in San Jose, CA

    I worked at Analog Devices full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and work/life balance. I learned many things over the years working there across several different roles. In general, as an engineer, I felt well taken care of and was a happy employee.

    Cons

    Salary was on the lower side of industry. Often slow moving due to typical big company issues. The company also struggled a little with resourcing business opportunities outside of the comfort zone of high margin industrial-type segments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the great work/life balance, however, try to improve compensation package.
