I have been working at Linear Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

I started working at Linear in March 2000, when Linear acquired my previous employer. The management team changed in the past few years and brought a new attitude with it. The environment has become very fast paced and the spirit of the company is now much more entrepreneurial. We are always looking for the next opportunity now. So we have brought on a ton of new exciting products for our customers to choose from.

Plus it never hurts to have a parent company worth 2 billion dollars in Nortek. This really allows our employees to have a ton of career opportunities within the Nortek network alone.

Cons

Not a lot to say here. Of course, as with any company, there are problems and issues that make one’s job difficult. But I honestly see problems being solved and issues being addressed. Transparency has been a big deal here, and it shows.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As I stated before, this management team has been fantastic. The turnaround here is very noticeable not only by us, the employees, but also our customers too. I would tell the management to keep the focus and don’t get distracted. We are doing great things now and I don’t see it stopping anytime soon.

    Pros

    The Companies, both Linear and Nortek, are in the middle of a real metamorphosis. Evolving from a very defensive business strategy to one of innovation and growth. Employees are encouraged and empowered to make decisions and contribute to the growth of the company.

    Cons

    Change is hard, and rarely accomplished fast enough. We are in a high growth period and are experiencing the normal issues such finding the best people and keeping those slow to embrace the change involved and on the right track.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on course. Transforming a culture isn't easy, and our challenges are many, but the payoff is huge and we'll all benefit from the investment.
