    Pros

    A true workhorse company, you're not stuck in meeting after meeting talking about work, you're actually getting it done.

    Cons

    A very frugal company, so support and tools are at a minimum

    Advice to Management

    Balance spending on support with profits better. Maybe more spending might help profits long term

    Pros

    Self driven individuals are the key to the success of this company. Excellent rewards for those who excel at their job.

    Cons

    The company is being acquired by Analog Devices in the near future, so there is not much time left for the current Linear.

    Advice to Management

    Work to keep the employees you are acquiring engaged and participating in product development process in all the ways they do today at Linear.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Linear Technology full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work environment is the best asset. Having a 6 week sabbatical every 5 years is nice as well. Everyone is a team player.

    Cons

    With the recent buyout from Analog Devices, I'm not sure where things are headed. Hopefully they realize what a special work environment this company has and doesn't try to change it too much.

    Advice to Management

    As I stated before, the culture at Linear Technology is what truly drives the company. It also motivates the employees.

    Great culture that caters to engineers that are OK working with minimal resources, but get to work on innovative parts with the best people in the business.
