    Pros

    Benefits and compensation, as a employee are outstanding..And the work rotation works well.

    Cons

    As a contractor hours and compensation do not work, lack of profession acknowledgement between supervisors and their subordinates.

    Be vigilant to those that deserve praise and give it, keep all communication open, after that everything else will follow.

    Pros

    Benefits
    quality products
    sales incentive plan, including high car allowance.

    Cons

    Sales Management is weak, inconsistent and inexperienced. Marketing and product lines (factory) have more expertise and less employment volatility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sales Engineers should be recognized and rewarded for demand creation and account penetration. Currently, there is no incentive for sales engineers to be proactive when there are many ADI sales engineers with employment longevity who are passive and reactive.

    Pros

    Provides excellent opportunity to develop specific skills to keep you competitively productive.

    Cons

    Not working as part of any team, no incentives offered for extra effort. Work you like dogs with no piece of the pie in return.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the last reduction of the profit sharing bonus, you have brought the majority of your employees just trying to make it with today's economic challenges to their knees. It is with their blood, sweat and tears you profit. Know that people are miserable, productivity has slowed to a crawl and there is no gratification working here. Restore the profit sharing bonus to what it was and give the workers back something and restore pride to the workforce.

    Pros

    Great people at this place... I made some good friends I'll keep forever. Some product families are really strong, some no so much. But the good ones dominate the business.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's too nice and they keep people that should be retired. Sometimes they loose their focus and hunger to win business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't stay fat and lazy on old business, take risks, margins won't always be high by themselves, you have to work on it.

    Pros

    Good place to work if you are looking for relaxed work environment. The main focus is on technology, and employees are not pushed forward.

    Cons

    Decision making is very slow. Lots of bureaucracy. Too many managers. Sometimes they lose the focus of customer and try to chase the best performance even though it is not needed.
