    I have been working at Analog Devices (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Easy work life balance. Non demanding job. Campus is ok.

    Cons

    Very poor compensation. No growth. No promotions. Crappy leadership. A huge waste of time. Not good for people who have high potential. Engineering managers are good talkers but unskilled washed out third rate engineers. The entire company has only one noteworthy success in the last 15 years. Anything that has potential you can be sure that management will screw it up and drop the ball.
    ADI pays very very low so they get crappy unmotivated engineers who love to just goof off.

    Advice to Management

    Please resign. Yes most of you are fairly uninspiring and useless gutless untalented people. New employees you definitely can do much better.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. You get to work with great people who are very smart and you get to work with cutting edge technology. The new CEO seems aggressive and is fast tracking the advance of the company (although this has led to more layoffs with the acquisitions).

    Cons

    Lots of red tape with many many layers of middle management and inefficiencies as a result of the red tape. Lots of paper work that accompanies red tape. Salaries could be higher.

    Advice to Management

    Organize the structure to minimize red tape. ADI is a stellar company otherwise.

    Pros

    This is a great company that honestly considers their employees to be their greatest asset. Anyone can walk into a senior manager's office, express their opinion, and be taken seriously. Continuous improvement is baked into the culture. At 50+ years old, an amazing number of people have been there for 20-30+ years. Especially in high tech, that says a lot.

    Cons

    Acronyms, code names and other jargon impede communication.

    Advice to Management

    Mostly outsourced, impersonal recruiting dehumanizes applicants.
