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 Management

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.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Products are high performance, robust and reliable. Engineers have the right attitude to make things right at the very first try. LTC has interesting innovation in IC development.

    Cons

    LTC is a conservative company. Upper and senior managements don't usually take risk and implement big changes. If they find a way that works, they stick with that way until something catastrophic happens.

    Advice to Management

    I can't think of anything to say now. Consider the current economic condition, the company is in a relatively good position and make good profits when the economy becomes better.
