Pros

Great place to learn integrated circuit design from one of the most experienced companies in the field. Very little bureaucracy to contend with.

Cons

Prone to industry ups and downs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To expand product scope to new markets that may be a bit outside core competencies and look at designing higher level products that can go direct to consumers in addition to b2b products.

    Always tense, numbers and forecast updates regularly requested yet data never used properly.

    Pros

    Full Profit Sharing once you achieve 2 years tenure. Respected product portfolio. Short lead times. Solid stock performance.

    Cons

    Arrogance of senior management. Pricing is consistently higher than competitors who are equally good at what they do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Undeniably profitable with no long-term vision on revenue growth. Amortize mature products and take less margin instead of constantly putting yourselves in a confrontational situation with customers who have more choices today than ever.

    Pros

    Compensation is among the highest in the industry. You can become very wealthy working for Linear if you have a hide thick enough to handle the abusive treatment.

    Cons

    Confrontational, threatening atmosphere. Management uses threats to control and "motivate" employees. Rarely any positive feedback. Seniority is sneeringly referred to as "longevity".
    If you are a decent Analog Designer then get in, make your money and get out as fast as possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    These people are so arrogant that no advice given would be heeded under any circumstances. Like the dog who barked each morning at sunrise, they remain convinced the the sun rises because of their barking. After all, the sun is coming up isn't it? You can't argue with their
    success.
