    A bit "Old School" management style (some would view that as a positive).

    People are smart and nice, Compensation is good including profit sharing. Working for the best performance products in the market, meaning earning a good engineering career.

    Old style. No 401k match (still company provides it from profit sharing) Old equipments for testing (but it is not really a big problem).

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Profit sharing , 6 week sabbatical after 5 years. Great upper management staff.
    Good people to work with. Those folks that leave usually regret it. Iv'e seen several work their way back in after leaving.

    Cons

    Takes several years to adjust to the 1970's culture.

    I worked at Linear Technology (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Culture may seem rough but I can say that the upper management does care about its employees....that's why they contribute a generous amount to 401(k) during profit sharing. The people there are like family and are very seasoned in what they do. Many of them are very helpful both at work and outside.

    Cons

    None really. Promotions can be far and few between because no one leaves a stable great company.....not Linear's fault. Equipment and tools are a bit dated and not the most effecient to use at times. Some dead wood folks linger from time to time that are non team oriented or outright lazy.
