Worthwhile experience to learn about analog circuits and develop lab skills

I worked at Linear Technology as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Really great place to learn about analog circuits. You also get to learn a lot of hands-on lab skills

Cons

You don't get as much "swag" and other office perks like free food and drinks like software companies but that's not too important

    I worked at Linear Technology full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay is par to industry averg. Benefits are good. The profit sharing varies, but it is one of the best that I have seen.

    Cons

    Management is very difficult to work with. Lots of micro-management, and CYA. It seems like they are all weaving blankets to cover their butts. Will not listen to the front line people. No work/life balence skills what so ever. So jobs have very limited opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower the front line people, listen to what they say.

    Pros

    Low pressure office atmosphere and always surrounded by very intelligent people. If you like a no no-BS kind of workspace then this is it. Attrition is also very low as they value their employees.

    Cons

    Seems to be perpetually stuck 10 years in the past when it comes it infrastructure and IT. They may make some of the highest performing analog ICs in the world but software and IT are definitely not up to snuff for a midsized company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Modernize internally. It will help productivity greatly.
