    Pros

    90% of people are great, very professional and smart. Good products. Decent benefits. Good work-life balance. Decent pay. Open to career moves within the company.

    Cons

    Management seems to have no clear direction. Bad managers and low performers are not dealt with. Too much politics often gets in the way of successful product releases. Poor or no communication between upper management and the rest of the company, even amongst themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate people in management and align them where you want the company to be. Acknowledge top performers and remove bottom performers.

    You really need to understand why young people are leaving ADI.
    Please look around office!

    I worked at Analog Devices full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The work environment is just perfect. Work is definitely busy daily but not overwhelmingly stressful. As an engineer, you may still find a balance between work and life, and this is definitely not the case in many of the engineering/high-tech firms. Engineers at Analog Devices know their shits inside out and they always stay on top of their game. They are very focused people and nice as well. There always will be people happy to assist whenever you need help.

    Cons

    I really cannot think of any downsides. One thing about the location is that Greensboro is not a terribly exciting place to live and there isn't much to do. But I guess there isn't anything that Analog Devices can do about it, is there?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire more young people, especially new college graduates and co-op students. Young people need opportunity and experience and they will be grateful if they are given a chance. And, I think it is very likely that you will gain quite a few future employees with loyalty.

    I worked at Analog Devices

    Pros

    A good company for one tour of duty, 4-5 years. Learn about analog technology, get an advanced degree and then move on. ADI is still a good brand to include in work history for now. ADI has a great legacy.

    Cons

    Policies and procedures are not followed consistently. HR may loose files, employees may be given bogus reviews, bad managers may be reassigned for their loyalty. Employees may find themselves in a political quagmire with no recourse. Caveat emptor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage for the long term as well as the short term. Reinstitute 5yr outlooks in the annual planning process.

    Pros

    The benefits are the best reason to work here.

    Cons

    My immediate group leader. Here in Nashua, it is hard to understand what she expects from us. It is disappointing to get the blame for things that were out of your control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Analyze your management, even the lowliest of them. Ask questions they should know, I think you will find they don't know what they should. Talk with the employees below them not just their immediate boss. They have worked together 18 years and are a bit friendly.
