    I have been working at Linear Technology

    Pros

    Get to work with some smart people.

    Cons

    Annual reviews focus more on negatives than positive. Max 5% raises, even during good times. Meager stock awards. A "Cover your ass" mentality. Lots of cussing and unprofessionalism from management. Design is king, all other depts are step children and abused. Some engineers are buddy buddy with their boss and able to slack off, you end up having to pick up the slack. Very little chance for career growth. No training provided. VERY HARD to get needed equipment (it took 2 years to get adequate chairs on test floor, people used to stand at terminals).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lighten up and loosen the purse strings. Be more supportive of employees and treat them fairly.

    I worked at Linear Technology

    Pros

    Linear has some incredibly talented employees and there are many opportunities to learn if you search for the right mentors.

    Cons

    There are some not so talented employees making it important that you take the effort to find those who can help you grow. Leadership also varies wildly between groups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more to differentiate the treatment of your excellent and not so excellent employees.
