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

Pros

Profit sharing in the range of 20-30% twice per year. 6-8 week long sabbatical every five years.

Cons

No incentive for growth. There are very few management positions available, especially for women. It's basically a boy's club. The hiring structure is focused on bringing in design engineers (99.9% male). Everyone else is looked upon as catering to the design community, and as such, not valued. The structure of the company is scattered. There is no centralized IT. Each department fends for itself.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

This company has millions it could invest in its employees, yet it sits on the cash, year after year. When we ask for anything extra, like a gym, basketball courts or even a couch in the women's restroom, the answer is always 'no', in spite of the wealth of cash on hand this company has. This year, in spite of how well we're doing, our annual salary increases were decreased to 4% maximum (down from 5%). Sabbaticals every five years and the 20-30% profit sharing bonuses we receive twice yearly are not enough to address the growing morale problem that exists company wide. Management needs to loosen the purse strings, provide some incentive for advancement (especially for non-design, non-male employees) and realize that the 'supporting' departments are just as vital to the company's well-being as the design department is.

    Work life balance
    Very little red tape & bureaucracy compared to similar companies

    Cons

    very few opportunities for advancement (which does NOT mean your compensation stays stagnant too)
    management swears a lot
    need to develop superior products with inferior equipment and technology

    swear less and update technology in lab. there's quite a bit of design inefficiency from not having the right equipment.
