    I have been working at Analog Devices (More than 3 years)

    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.

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

    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.

    Pros

    Great Leadership from upper management. Bonus and Compensation are competitive. Respectful and pleasant working conditions.

    Cons

    Middle management could use some coaching...Remember, it takes money to make money. Depending on location. They seem to keep the good ol' boy system going. They don't try to put money into new blood because they are spending to much on the old blood whom are no longer relevant.

    Advice to Management

    Make the old blood contribute as much as the new blood...After all you are paying them twice as much. Also if you have a middle manager whom seems to be forgetting things...it may be time for them to retire. If they don't wish to retire, move them into a position with little effect on the rest of us.

    Pros

    Stable company, global workforce, opportunities for broad learning and to work on whole projects, good benefits like vacation/health/401k, good people

    Cons

    Slow moving, poor at mentoring, lower salaries than other tech, unclear advancement path with some cronyism, to much legacy business processes and inefficiencies, inconsistent management quality (middle managers at least), lack of diversity

    Advice to Management

    Move faster (too much arcane process and bloat). Good engineers don't necessarily make good managers, do better at evaluating team and group leaders and hold them accountable
