Current Employee - Design Engineer in Milpitas, CA (US)

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

Pros

Solid in most areas. Good engineering talent especially in Design and Applications. Can be financially rewarding and job security is good. 4 or 6 week (depending on position) sabbatical every 5 years in addition to normal vacation.

Cons

Company culture is somewhat stuffy, especially considering that it is a high tech company. Company tends to really adhere to the phrase "do more with less".
Demanding.

    I have been working at Linear Technology full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company is very conservatively run with predictable and stable performance even in tough economic times as these. Highly intelligent, capable, and experienced R&D/factory engineers interface with industry-best global field sales teams. Business units and shallow internal hierarchy fosters easier inter- and intradepartmental cooperation.

    Cons

    Base compensation is sub-par, sometimes leading to lowered morale & motivation. Benefits and amenities are seen as mediocre, with the occasional accusation of the company being "cheap" at the expense of comfort and even functionality.

    I have been working at Linear Technology full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Linear as a whole is well managed. Good business model, high profit margin. Good quality control in matured product lines. Not necessary high tech.

    Cons

    Not every group's performance can meet Linear's standard. There are still poorly managed, low productive groups eating company's profit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Each product line manager is an anchor. with Linear's money, a superstar should be hired as the anchor. An incompetent manager is unlikely to hire good engineers.
