    Pros

    Benefits are good but some are slowly been whittled away like bonuses for publications. However, company performance bonuses are usually very good although criteria is adjusted constantly to keep the payouts from getting too high. There are lots of great and knowledgeable folks to work with. Company technology is cutting edge. Overall the benefits of working here outweigh the negatives. Not many places offer the level of benefits that ADI offers.

    Cons

    The work environment offers pretty good work/life balance but Day to day work is very fast paced and everyone is very busy with not enough time to finish the tasks at hand. Several groups could use more resources to get things done but there is not enough hiring. Several recent changes of organization and management shifts make it more difficult for certain groups.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people to ease some of the demanding burden on employees. The complexity of products and amount of work required is too much for he current resource pool. Don't keep changing the bonus structure so much to keep the payouts down when the company is doing well.

    Pros

    Relaxing working environment, people are nice and less demanding comparing to other more aggressive culture companies.

    Cons

    Low efficiency overall, but good for settling for longterm

    Advice to Management

    Empowerment is important for a company of this size

    I have been working at Analog Devices full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Challenging work, awesome bonuses lately, good pay, nice 401k match, flexibility to work from home when I need to. Manager has been supportive in my career. (I've had to be proactive about going after projects I find interesting, but haven't encountered any issues yet.)

    You can see the old school vibe a little, but the company has changed a lot since I started and you can see some good things happening.

    The company is doing well and I get to work on interesting projects, so it's been a solid place to work and I'm still happy I took the job.

    Cons

    Vacation time is less than competitors. Office furniture is old. There's a new headquarters being built but until then, everything is dated.

    Pros

    Genius engineers, bright observers of market trends. There are extremely talented folks throughout the organizations and the internal conferences are great opportunities to broaden your knowledge and network.

    Cons

    Not really sure management understands that career development is a strong desire from younger employees. A lot of this depends on who your manager is. If your manager isn't giving you what you need, there aren't many options for you. Upper management is good at communicating high level strategy, but middle management struggles to develop efficient ways to execute on these goals - leading to lots of wondering by the lower level folks. No clear promotion pathway. Anti-social culture at least in Greensboro since so many people commute.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your lowest level employees and actually do something about what they say. Management gets continual feedback but rarely does anything significant about it until a customer pushes us to do something about it.
