    I worked at Linear Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The best analog design company in the world. Good hours and work life balance compared to other companies in the area. Good compensation although that may be changing with the ADI merger.

    Cons

    The company has lost touch with its soul. Too many H1B workers working long hours and forcing domestic Americans to keep up. Certain departments have preferential hiring towards Chinese applicants despite lackluster performance.

    Company is extremely cheap with resources to the point where it's actually amusing. The benefit of this is that sometimes you get to make a piece of test equipment from old junk.

    Advice to Management

    Try to hire people who actually enjoy analog engineering. There are plenty of engineers out there who started out as hobbyists initially and would be very good if given the chance to prove themselves. Solving technical interview questions does not allow for good judgement of a candidate.

    Instead of hiring H1B applicants from top graduate programs who only see analog engineering as a paycheck, try to find people who live and breathe engineering. They're still out there.
