    Pros

    If you work with a good manager, you will be well taken care of. It all depends on who you report to. The work life balance is good. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Takes long time to get promoted, and office politics as usual. Pay is okay, not that great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote employees in a timely basis.

    Pros

    The only pro is work-life balance as there is very little work to do.
    Goof engineering talent.

    Cons

    In competent management, no new ideas. Most people have been there for too long and don;t do any work. Everyone acts busy but there are no results to show for it.
    Incompetent management at the top and middle manager level. Very unprofessional and exploitative.
    For those on H1B they will not file greencard till the fifth year. Corporate immigration is horrible and does everything to stall an employees career progress.
    Very difficult to change groups and roles within the company.
    Low pay and they can get away with it because they are located in the Greater Boston area where there are no other companies.
    Poor sales and marketing organizations.
    DO NOT WORK HERE IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ACCOMPLISHING ANYTHING IN YOUR CAREER.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire existing management and hire competent people. Management needs major overhaul.

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

    Pros

    Smart people, nice co-workers. I worked at Analog for just under two years and enjoyed my experience with my co-workers the most.

    Cons

    Large corporation and drab office environment. Working at Analog means working in a sea of dull, gray cubes. I also had a bad manager which soured much of my experience at Analog. They wanted to bring me on as a full-time employee, yet that meant bringing my laptop home and working after hours, so I remained as a contractor since it benefited me more.
