    Excellent company for personal career growth

    Jun 11, 2020 - Human Resources Business Partner in Wilmington, MA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Analog strives to be the best company by providing solutions to our customers which impact all areas of the world we live in. Employees have great pride in working there and are appreciated for their knowledge, innovation and continuous improvement mindset. Our people are the foundation of what makes ADI a great company. ADI is also committed to improving the environment and being a strong social leader. This is a culture I can stand by.

    Cons

    ADI is experiencing some growing pains through the integration of acquired companies while still harmonizing systems, policies and culture. As ADI gets bigger, the decision processes take longer, this is something they are trying to improve.

    It is changing

    Sep 12, 2021 - Management 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Overall, a good place to work.

    Cons

    Senior management only interested in Wall Street, and not interested in supporting innovation and organic growth. Growth is obtained by M/A. Human Resources is not trustworthy for the employee, and do little to help the business. The SLT is clueless on the workings of the company. Re-organizations happen too often. Senior management not interested in the right things to do, only interested in what looks good to others. The company did well in 2010 when it had adequate inventory to fuel a ramp in business and took business away from TI, not, the CFO limited inventory to a point where TI is now able to deliver, ADI cannot - all due to pleasing Wall Street rather than making logical business decisions. It used to be an engineering company, but now is a company run by sales and HR, who know little about running a manufacturing company. The manufacturing organization continues to send manufacturing offshore to places that are not stable, rather then invest in their domestic locations in spite of the fact that the US economy is suffering because it has lots domestic manufacturing of IC's - they still are continuing to let their domestic manufacturing facilities rot rather than upgrade them for the future. The foundries have become the business for ADI, and ADI will pay for that shift to foundry manufacturing. It is no longer the people company that Ray Stata founded. ADI has lost the formula for success. It is very sad to see.

    Without a Clue

    Sep 29, 2021 - Product Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good for a first job if you are an intern and just want to get your feet wet for around 2 years or so before moving on.

    Cons

    They have a very bad habit of taking over a company without understanding the culture or internal dynamics and politics which leads to the wrong people being put in charge. It always leads to infighting resulting in key people they need to keep leaving because of how the people put in charge play the favoritism game. The end result is they are left with only the people with lower knowledge, skills and abilities. No one with any real technical knowledge stays with the ADI for more than about 2 years. In addition, no one ever seems to be able to make a decision on their own and they have to wait for people up the management chain. It's due to that old outdated East Coast hierarchy structure system that simply does not work in todays work environment. They simply don't have any clue and they keep making the same mistakes over and over.

    Is Ok, but not Linear Tech

    Aug 7, 2021 - Field Sales Engineer in Boston, MA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good technology in focus areas. Some business units are responsive and want to sell their technology.. Some groups simply aren't interested in what you're working on with customers..

    Cons

    No RSUs. No ESPP. Company isn't too concerned about individuals. Large broad stroke layoffs. Some people are great and get back to you so you can support the customers. Some do not get back after multiple emails and/or calls. Feedback from customers is ADI is difficult to work with. Same customers say Linear Tech was great to work with. ADI is large and some groups just don't want to invest their time in your sales opportunities. It's too bad because the company could win more business if it would be more responsive. Company has great technology, especially through acquisitions like LTC and Hittite.

    Headed for the toilet

    Mar 1, 2021 - Application-Engineer in Santa Clara, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Only good for like 2 to 3 years max if you are an intern and wanting to get you feet wet before moving on.

    Cons

    ADI has become a horrible non-technical company, The have become nothing but a dog and pony show. They take over companies like Linear Technology and now Maxim then blow it due to the HR department not understanding the internal politics and dynamics of the different groups when they come in and take over. As a result the wrong people often become managers then people from the opposing sides start leaving because they know what will happen or they get laid off. The problem originates from ADI's company headquarters in Massachusetts and the head HR guy there doesn't have a clue. Many of us here in Santa Clara originally from LTC in Milpitas are are currently looking for employment elsewhere due to the environment. I've been on job interviews recently and when you tell them you work for ADI they roll their eyes because most people in the industry who have worked for or had dealings with ADI already know. It's common knowledge and its getting worse. No one with any real technical knowledge stays with ADI more than 2 to 3 years max as a result. The quality and reliability of LTC's power devices for example has already deterioated signicficatly to where I've had customers ask me what is going on because they are starting to have real problems. I cannot wait for find other employment and get out of here.

    Losing Young Talents

    Mar 28, 2021 - Product Test Engineer in Wilmington, MA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Projects are very interesting and intellectually challenging. Engineering culture is excellent. Colleagues are mostly very willing to help and share knowledge. All the engineering managers I worked for are very reasonable folks with common sense and data-driven approach.

    Cons

    Work has become more and more demanding with ever tighter schedule. Many coworkers are spending ever more extra hours just to meet aggressive product development/release schedules. I feel ADI has been taken that for granted a little bit, without compensating employees' extra efforts going above and beyond.

    Only Good to Build Your Resume If You Have No Options

    Feb 4, 2021 - Technical Editor 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -Comprehensive training -Develops your skills -Some editors are helpful

    Cons

    My experience at ADI was terrible and by moving on to another company, I've discovered how awful the work culture is at this office. From the morning you come into the moment you leave, you are flooded with projects in collaboration with engineers that are happy to ignore your emails and then throw you under the bus when deadlines slip. Many of them are either extremely rude with their responses or are unwilling to cooperate and balk at every step. You are pushed beyond your limits daily with these interactions and while upper management will step in at some points, they're far more concerned with preserving their image than actually confronting these people. You're forced to keep a meticulous log of emails to defend yourself when you're inevitably blamed for the project being late. You have to work from a contracting position with low pay, no health insurance and no vacation days whatsoever for a job that requires a high level of skill and effort. It's no wonder people keep going through the workplace like a sliding door as the compensation is far too low for the amount of abuse endured. As a result, upper management only sees you as dispensable and treats you accordingly with little respect. If they're not micro-examining your every move (which is compounded by the time tracking system), they're yelling at you for small mistakes and creating more paranoia in an already stressful environment. There is no team spirit in this workplace as everyone is stressed out of their minds trying to finish everything in time. While editors do help each other, talking to senior editors can be intimidating as responses can be back-handed and sarcastic. The department director refuses to understand the importance of editors and thus allows this mistreatment to continue, while keeping the job at contract-to-hire, a ridiculous practice that discourages editors from staying full-time. I do not recommend accepting this job unless you are desperate for work or need something to build your resume. The level of disrespect from the engineers you work with is unreal and upper management is strict and intimidating. The job is incredibly stressful with multiple projects and the time tracking program coupled with upper management's microattention makes this place extremely oppressive. This place is not worth the unimaginable stress and cold work culture.

    Pros

    None I can speak to.

    Cons

    Toxic managers, little pay for strenuous work, no perks, starting off as an hourly contractor with no benefits, no respect within ADI at large. This is a complete waste of a job unless you want to build your resume and leave after a year.

    Downward Trend - 2 1/2 Stars

    Jun 13, 2015 - Product Marketing Manager in Wilmington, MA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good people and friendly close-knit culture. Fair compensation and benefits. Well regarded supplier by customers makes customer engagements superior in most (not all) cases.

    Cons

    The 2013 passing of conservative CEO Jerald Fishman brought on first-time CEO Vincent Roche and empowered CFO David Zinsner to follow voices within to take greater risks, evaluate acquisition targets, and attempt to grow the company's bottom line faster than deemed possible organically - To be more aggressive 'like Texas Instruments (TI)'. However, while the years under Fishman brought frequent calls from TI employees begging to be rescued from the negative & threatening employee culture of TI, that trend has changed with the changing of the guard at ADI. Changing directions, restructuring, a heavy drive for growth, and a TI-like review process designed more for employee turnover than true employee development has caused a loss of loyalty and an erosion of camaraderie. There is a lack of genuine sharing within the matrix as employees understand the need to raise their own profile rather than help a colleague. The company is suspicious of employees taking ADI's Intellectual Property so the IT department is chartered with tracking employees data activities and there are immediate consequences if the IT Department perceives (rightly or wrongly) you may exit the company with some of their data.

    Pros

    Good coworkers who always had my back

    Cons

    You’re scammed into working for this department when you’re fresh out of school. There is constantly turnover as they make training next to impossible. Emails from the manager, their manager, and senior editors are always back-handed and passive-aggressive. There is hardly any quality support except from the other editors. You always feel like you’re being watched. You have to track your time by five minute intervals. The office thrives on anxiety and the fear of being fired. The top two managers are incompetent and unneeded. They have no formal training in what their jobs require and are racist as well as shame women for what they wear. They often take “training trips” as an excuse to travel. As my first job out of college, I thought working for a tech company would be great, especially one 50 years old. However, you’re hired as a contractor with no benefits, limited sick time, and are paid so low you’ll barely make meets end. Once I moved onto other tech companies, I realized what a horrible place ADI is for workers. All they care is the bottom line. There’s not even free coffee. Go find another tech job. This is an archaic company that is getting lost in a sea of technology. It’s an old boys club that will never change. Find. Work. Elsewhere.
