Pros

Full Profit Sharing once you achieve 2 years tenure. Respected product portfolio. Short lead times. Solid stock performance.

Cons

Arrogance of senior management. Pricing is consistently higher than competitors who are equally good at what they do.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Undeniably profitable with no long-term vision on revenue growth. Amortize mature products and take less margin instead of constantly putting yourselves in a confrontational situation with customers who have more choices today than ever.

    I worked at Linear Technology

    Pros

    Compensation is among the highest in the industry. You can become very wealthy working for Linear if you have a hide thick enough to handle the abusive treatment.

    Cons

    Confrontational, threatening atmosphere. Management uses threats to control and "motivate" employees. Rarely any positive feedback. Seniority is sneeringly referred to as "longevity".
    If you are a decent Analog Designer then get in, make your money and get out as fast as possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    These people are so arrogant that no advice given would be heeded under any circumstances. Like the dog who barked each morning at sunrise, they remain convinced the the sun rises because of their barking. After all, the sun is coming up isn't it? You can't argue with their
    success.

    I have been working at Linear Technology

    Pros

    Good compensation
    good communication within engineering team
    got exposure to a large range of things
    engineering atmosphere is good if staying in the right team

    Cons

    Not much professional training
    Not many chances for promotion
    Sometimes, the large work load can prevent you from learning new things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In fact, I think the management did what they were supposed to do.

    Maybe, as employee, people may think the management shall do more things for them. But the management did their work for the company and for big shareholder. So no big complain.
