I worked at Linear Technology

Pros

If you want to work with some of the smartest people in the field of analog circuits, this is the place. There are top notch engineers all around and everyone is doing challenging and educational work. You have a lot of individual responsibility for your own project. Flat hierarchy with high employee retention. Rewarding profit sharing program and paid sabbatical.

Cons

The benefits package is a bit lacking (no vision insurance). Stingy corporate culture; the company is reluctant to spend money on computers and lab equipment. Minimal vacation days.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be less stingy with money for lab equipment and offer more paid time off.

    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.
