    I worked at Analog Devices full-time

    Pros

    The company is very lean, and efficient in terms of squeezing employees. It is a global company, it optimizes global Human Resources to take advantage of cheaper labor outside of the US. The global work force is truly working around the clock.

    Cons

    Management do not value company infrastructure and mainly run the company based on the will of a few. You are expected to finish your work and get out. Career development or advancenent is a joke.

    Pros

    The people come from a wide range of skills. The "Fellows" are willing to spend the time fostering talent. Some divisions are still very open to trying new things. Some departments actively try and raise the skills of the team (team work and training).

    Cons

    For some departments S.M.A.R.T. goals are not really understood. Today's goal is lost in the noise of day to day work until it comes time for reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Mentoring managers for keeping the "paperwork" from being the job would be helpful. When your day is equally split between completing tasks and documenting what is done and what is still due... it is a drag on productivity and moral.

    I worked at Analog Devices (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Easy work schedules. Work-life balance.

    Cons

    Crap political environment. Stupid company run by Test engineering people who have no clue how to design good parts, inspire engineers and win business. Outdated practices of doing everything. Nothing is done on time. 50-75% of the projects get delayed or cancelled. Very low compensation which is 25% below industry. Company can not hire key talent from California semi companies or any employee in the top 5 semi companies of the world because the pay is crap. RSU bonus is 1/3rd of industry norm. No one not one single one key hire over the last 10-12 years made a difference to this company. Every single acquisition made by this company in the last 15 years was botched and screwed up. Over payed by 50% for Linear. Spectacular failures from marketing and engineering to deliver on key design sockets.

    Advice to Management

    Fire your middle management. Sell ADI to a better company.

    Pros

    Great benefits and access to any resource to help you do your job better. Great profit sharing. An overall sence that leadership is there to help the individual contributer be productive.

    Cons

    Middle management out of touch. Too much focus on strategic (long term) efforts and not tactical (day to day). Many current programs are starved of people causing missed deadlines and employee stress.

    Advice to Management

    Verify information at all levels

    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

    There is great work life balance but often experience a feast or famine

    Cons

    New CEO is very aggressive and a long term player.

    Advice to Management

    1. Too much red tape and politics of marketing managers and no accountability of managers who are too comfortable in their roles for a long time.
    2. Company still does not understand fully how important digital design is compared to analog design.
    3. Many managers are stuck with old thinking and don't recognize value and talent.
