I have been working at Linear Technology

Pros

Products are high performance, robust and reliable. Engineers have the right attitude to make things right at the very first try. LTC has interesting innovation in IC development.

Cons

LTC is a conservative company. Upper and senior managements don't usually take risk and implement big changes. If they find a way that works, they stick with that way until something catastrophic happens.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I can't think of anything to say now. Consider the current economic condition, the company is in a relatively good position and make good profits when the economy becomes better.

    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 for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Love it. Designers are very smart and good to work for. No politics, no games, no bulls***. Management focuses on high value, long life, high performance parts and has a long view. What a refreshing change from other short-sighted tech companies! Yes, there have been shutdowns but it sure beats getting laid off or working insane hours like most other companies handle downturns. A very broad based product line is also a pleasure to work with, it means there is no such thing as one big stumble that kills the company. I've learned a lot here and never want to leave.

    Cons

    None. This is as good as it gets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up guys, I want to retire from LTC.
