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

    Pros

    I am a long time employee (~20 years) who has stayed because ADI has always been a great place to work. There have always been opportunities to grow through the years. It is a place where you can have a healthy work life balance. It is a big enough company to have opportunity, but not too big where you could get lost in the crowd.

    Cons

    It is a highly collaborative culture which can be good, but can also lead to slow decision making.

    Pros

    Great technology, innovative engineers and challenging projects. If you wan to learn the very best IC development skills, this is your best option in NC.

    Cons

    Semi competitive landscape has changed the industry, and while the company has adapted very well to the changes, in order to remain profitable there is much less focus on R&D and forward looking innovation, and more focus on the bottom line. Tends to make the corporate environment much less pleasant....more meetings, less work. Scramble for work on the best projects, etc. Still plenty of opportunity for individuals.

    I worked at Analog Devices full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a great place to learn a lot about design and reliable manufacturing.
    Can get great visibility into industry trends that are maybe 5 years down the road.
    It's a really stable company, and great for family people.

    Cons

    It's full of lifers and general product development is rather risk averse.
    All the lifers really get in the way of getting things done. It's understandable, they wan't to guarantee their job security, but I don't see why they need to impede my projects.
    I would recommend that young engineers (<35) do not stay more than 3 years, unless they really like petty politics.

    Advice to Management

    Would be worthwhile to read through Reed Hastings' Netflix culture slide deck.

    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.
