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 Management

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.

    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 Management

    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.


  2. Land of the golden handcuffs

    Pros

    Excellent benefits/compensation package. Close to home in a suburban environment (light commuting traffic). Comparable base salary to other like companies but the semi-annual profit sharing on base and OT(average 29% over last 9 years), attendance bonus, ERT bonus, 100% sellback of unused sick time, floating holiday and vacation time as well as the 1-month sabbatical every 5 years makes it a superior employer.

    Cons

    The company's attempt to run with a very lean crew makes for good profits but also makes it difficult to utilize earned time off. The generous compensation package makes it difficult to want to leave when you get burnt out (not sure if that's a bad thing). Because of the low attrition rate it is difficult to change shifts when life circumstances require a change. The company is also prone to witch hunts and knee jerk reactions when issues arise rather than spending time and money up front to prevent the foreseeable occurrences before they happen. Has become less in touch with employee needs over the last 5+ years in favor of profits and what I term "management success trophies" (eye candy projects)

    Advice to Management

    Reinvest in your employee base. A happy, loyal, focused employee is worth 2 bots that just do as they are told. The best leaders will have employees that desire to see the company succeed vs. just coming to work and doing what they are told because it keeps the paycheck coming.
