    I worked at Analog Devices full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interesting work (for some), good benefits, work with very skilled engineers

    Cons

    Poor direction and leadership from upper management, culture becoming more toxic and polarized, long design cycles with large teams = slow career growth and development, low pay compared to other companies in the industry, frequent re-orgs, layoffs, work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    You need to improve the career development situation. The assembly-line method where people have the same role over and over wastes people's potential. Also, need to fix the territorial culture that leads to extreme waste of resources and a terrible work environment. Most are not happy, some regretting coming to ADI, people will leave. It is a real shame that ADI is devolving from where it was to where it is going.

    I worked at Analog Devices as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    The culture at Analog Devices is very open and inviting. Most of the engineers I worked with were very helpful whenever I had questions about specific projects I was working on at the time.

    There weren't tight constraints placed on employees when it came to accounting for working hours and the management was very flexible in the event of emergencies and needing to take time off. Accumulation of vacation time was a slow process but you start off with 3 weeks as a new hire.

    I worked as an intern, but after my seventeen months of non-consecutive "rotations" at the company, I felt very well educated on the projects I worked and felt strong connections to some of my fellow employees.

    Cons

    Despite the flexibility of the management, I found myself at a loss for how to progress during certain stages of a project. My manager was often very busy with his own work and had little time to train me or give me direction on who to talk to in order to solve the problems I was dealing with at the time.

    Over the years I worked off and on as an intern, I saw the same faces in the same positions with only horizontal "promotions" and shifting employees around into different groups. Recently, a corporate restructure took place that left several employees in groups and positions they were unfamiliar with and unskilled in.

    Advice to Management

    Since the group sizes are often relatively small, encourage more face-time between management and employees to catalyze growth of the worker and ensure a level of comfort with the type of work currently assigned.

    Pros

    ADI is filled with really bright, competent engineers. It is an amazing place to increase your skills. I learned a lot at ADI and got to work on a lot of very interesting projects.

    Cons

    Raises aren't very good. Hard to break through into the ranks of senior people. Lay people off too often and then have to hire again soon.

    Advice to Management

    You're doing quite well, but you could improve the prospects of your junior engineers.
