    Pros

    Projects are done in collaboration and there's always help from your team and people outside your team when you encounter issues. There's also a very good internal knowledge sharing platform. People are very friendly and professional, the work ambience in general is very satisfying

    Cons

    Growth in terms of salary could be slow in some cases

    Great people but loosing thier edge

    Dec 5, 2012 - Product Marketing Manager in Wilmington, MA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Talented group of people who are willing to help out and come together to get the job done. Minimal amount of office politics and finger pointing when things go wrong. Culture and job posting system make it easy to try new things without having to leave the company to do so.

    Cons

    Too much old blood running the company. Many employees now are just going through the motions and have lost enthusiasm; depressed by a lack of corporate vision and guidance. Too high a premium is placed on design engineering.

    So far so good

    Aug 27, 2019 - Engineer in Santa Clara, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Analog Devices acquired Linear Technology in 2016/2017 and the companies, previously located in San Jose and Milpitas, eventually merged into two luxurious towers in Santa Clara in 2019. The buildings are modern and spacious. They project the image of the company in a modern and professional way. The company has a suite of software applications that allow engineers and customers to design, simulate and verify the performance of most ICs. Employees are experts in a variety of areas. Many are helpful and knowledgeable. The pay is good. Employees have a minimum of 10 days of PTO and 80 hours of sick time per year. Bonuses are available now and then. Training is provided at least once a year and courses are useful and interesting. There is a lot of room for professional growth and the company seems like a good place for fostering learning. A gym is available near the towers but it's shared by multiple companies like AMD or Ericsson that are located nearby. Apartments are available across the street. If you can afford to burn $3-4k per month in rent you will love them. The view from the 6 floors of the towers is really nice. There is plenty of space for taking breaks and eating lunch. The company is solid in terms of management that constantly gauges the market, the pros, the cons, the competition and the direction of the company.

    Cons

    There are two cafeterias which are shared by other companies. They are not convenient, often overcrowded, rather expensive and the food is mediocre. Around the area there aren’t any options so bring your food from home. A building has been dedicated to parking which, again, is shared by multiple companies. Some people enjoy parking over the lines so that you cannot park next to them because stalls are just big enough for a small/medium sized car. Some dummies park oversized vehicles that remain in the way for hours. Some people enjoy racing or drifting through stop signs inside the parking structure so watch out for animals off leash. Try to avoid getting into an accident and show up early to get a spot unless you want to park on the 5th or the 6th floor. IT is now available on the 5th floor of one of the towers but their service is still often inappropriate. They are slow, careless and tickets are not resolved unless you drive them on your own by contacting IT to keep them engaged. Learn to troubleshoot issues on your own and you are better off. Some employees are laid back. If you look for support, they are resistant to helping out or they are slow. If you have a problem with a software and your productivity tanks, don't be surprised. Cubicles have been reduced in size and they are clustered in areas where people can get loud and some people love to get loud. If you are looking for concentration all you can do is cherish the good old days. Phone rooms are available everywhere and they are typically empty because whoever needs to make a phone call is found in a meeting room. The layout of the buildings does not make a lot of sense. Some departments and floors are squeezed. There are plenty of empty corridors and purposeless areas that could have been used for offices and labs which are both smaller in size. There are plenty of kitchen areas with retarded soap dispensers (they dispense soap very slowly if they dispense at all). If you want some water hire a midget. The water dispensers are 3 feet from the ground but shelves and cupboards are all empty to be used for nothing else otherwise. If you want coffee there is plenty of it on any floor (1 French roast pot and 2 regular roast pots - coffee-flavoured water galore). Restrooms have a reduced number of stalls but huge empty areas where you can host a meeting if you want. The holes of the bins where you throw paper towels are tiny. All in all, the interior design of the buildings shows the sheer lack of judgement of the company that designed them. Some people do not talk professionally like they should so, again, all you can do is cherish the good old days. Investment options are available but mediocre and flexibility is limited. HR wants to help but it really doesn't really use feedback to improve things. Traffic to and from work can be a nightmare so, again, show up early to stay ahead of the game. The idea of merging two companies was to unite them but now that they are in the same building it feels they are divided just like before.

    Great place to work

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Brilliant technology, interesting work and excellent people. I started as a grad this summer and so far, its been a great experience. The people are great here and all so friendly. I've gotten to know people outside my group and everyone is so open to help and answer every question that you have. You can't beat the atmosphere here. My manager and team have been brilliant. They haven't thrown me in the deep end but I have been given challenging work from the start. Whenever I get stuck on something, there's someone to answer my questions.

    Cons

    The building I work in has no windows and its so dark and miserable looking.

    Good place to start out but hard to rise to the top

    Oct 9, 2008 - Digital IC Design Engineer in Norwood, MA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Analog is a stable and well-established company. They have a broad portfolio of products that diversify them across many end markets and customers. All employees are very capable and the senior designers are some of the best in the industry. There are good opportunities to learn here.

    Cons

    I think organizations of people come in different size classes and each size requires a different structure and communication style. Analog has grown from small to medium and is approaching large, but the corporate memory and habits are still those of a small organization. Lack of adequate communication is a problem in all directions (top-down, between groups and within one group). Politics and personality conflicts can get in the way of progress. In short: individuals, good; working together as a group, bad.

    Good Place to Work

    Dec 7, 2012 - Technical in Wilmington, MA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    New segment reorganization is putting the focus in the right places.

    Cons

    A bit of an old boy network in some places has caused some clogging of the corporate arteries. The recent RIF was a marked departure from previous practices and seemed to be purely for financial reasons and some good people were let go. Usually the company tries to shift good people around to retain them or does across-the-board salary reductions and the few that get let go are those with the worst reviews. Work ethic a bit lacking in some employees.

    Pros

    Pros working in other teams in Analog Devices except PTE team 1. Work Life balance in every team except Product and Test Engineer Team 2. Will gain Knowledge from their respective team members 3. Healthy atmosphere except in PTE team 4. Except PTE team every team recruits freshers from IIT's ( Mostly PTE team will recruit freshers from non IIT's). So you will have a chance to work with Talented people

    Cons

    Cons working in PTE team 1. No Work Life Balance 2. Have to stay late at nights 3. Micro Managing 4. No team Outings. 5. Mental Stress and Pressure 6. So many people left PTE team as there is no work life balance (Take this point as a suggestion)

    Nice start but very slow progress

    Aug 27, 2016 - Senior Product Development Engineer in Cavite, Cavite City
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Starting pay is good. - Nice starting jobs from a new college graduate. - You can learn a lot and work with smart people.

    Cons

    - After several years work becomes boring and not being challenged. Discussed with yearly review with manager but no progress made. - Politics are intense and some people promoted twice in a year because they are favorites. - Requested several times to go weekend support but once you don't come then it takes against you. - Yearly increase is very low, although you had outstanding ratings. Some yearly salary increase is below inflation rate. - Immediate manager becomes personal before exit and quote 'if you ever come back here then I wont hire you'. But after working 3 months on a different company I got an unsolicited request from that same manager saying if I could work back to the team. That is a disaster and I never looked back!

    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.
