LTC

Design Engineer (Former Employee)

I worked at Linear Technology

ProsExceptional talent. Good networking. A lot of collaboration by way of walking around and chatting about circuits, techniques etc. Not a lot of micromanaging. Fairly efficiently run company. Excellent compensation, especially in the form of bonuses.

ConsSometimes frugality made the job challenging. Linear used to have a lack of desire in wanting to spend the extra buck on software packages or equipment. They have improved on this over the years. This frugality also led to innovation (a pro) where engineers had to be clever to circumvent whatever shortcomings they had.

Advice to Senior ManagementIn general, the management is well run. It was nice that most of the management team was once on the engineering side.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
