I worked at Linear Technology

Pros

Design is focus on making sure their part is near perfect when release.
Get to work with some of the best designers around.
Able to pick the brains for ideas & help.

Cons

Non – engineering personnel is not highly regarded compared to engineers.
Not many people can utilize the tuition reimbursement.
Rapid career advancement is unlikely – hierarchy is flat.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to loosen some of the purse-strings – Linear is not willing spend the money thatcan better the company in R&D and the employees.
Establish a better development program for personnel when becoming managers.

    I have been working at Linear Technology full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Generous benefits. Great opportunities to learn interesting new things and do satisfying day to day work.

    Cons

    The company operates like it's still the early 90s. Huge reliance on paper. Old tools that go down to maintenance far too often. A lack of meaningful automation to help operators.

    The worst part by far, however, is the upstairs management. At first the idea of Linear being a place where lots of family and friends work sounds great, but it's pretty clear that everyone knows each other far too well for management or HR to feel comfortable making any decisions. Arguments or HR issues will go unresolved. There is very much a culture of "deal with it" in regards to problems that arise, which only makes the work feel more and more toxic as time goes on. Employees who have been with the company long enough are essentially invincible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make operators and employees who have problems feel like they've actually been listened to. It feels like there's no way to get help with a problem at Linear.
