    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Stable company recently celebrating a 50th anniversary. Significant revenue stream from legacy parts. Large cash reserves. Few day to day existential crises.

    Cons

    - Stable company with little vision breeds laziness, internal politics.
    - Middle management is over-sized and not aligned. Decisions aren't made.

    - Company composed of many small teams with limited collaboration between them.
    - Little reward for the developers and few hardworking engineers that produce the successful products. No incentive to succeed.
    - Technical talent largely limited to converters and a few isolated businesses.

    - Upper management exhibits lack of technical understanding and judgement, ultimately leading to bad decisions, acquisitions and investments.
    - Executive vision is cliche, lacking depth and examples. CEO and CTO are both marketing focused.

    Advice to Management

    Fire people who haven't delivered major results within 3 years. Start by cutting out layers of management. Profit share with rising employee stars.
