I have been working at Linear Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)
Huge potential for growth is starting to be realized
Talented engineering team, both new hires and "old-timers"
Product portfolio just screams "internet of things" if product management can only agree to make them all connected
Project development teams are still relatively small (typically 10 engineers or less)
Project ownership and responsibility are recognized by upper management
Good work life balance for many (but admittedly not all)
Many are still struggling with recent changes and effects of company growth
Resource growth needs to track company growth. We need to keep hiring!
Parent company Nortek does not appear to understand what it takes to grow and attract new talent for Linear
Benefits package is not competitive with other technology companies in the area
Need more incentives to motivate strong performers and improve performance overall
Need to cut loose those who are counter-productive and not performing at an acceptable level
Advice to Management
See Cons above. Need to fix these.
Linear upper and middle management and Nortek need to be better aligned with Mike O'Neal's vision for the company.
When promoting changes in the town hall meetings, know your audience. Most employees want to know how company growth and changes will improve their jobs and lot in life, not corporate financials and revenue.
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Linear Corporation (Carlsbad, CA) in May 2015.
4 groups of 2-3 people per department. Last about 3 hours while you get interviewed by people you will be working with. Lots of skills required of logging test you have completed. Asked a lot about experience and trying to figure how much you know. They ask a lot of questions to find your strengths and weakness.
