    Senior mask designer

    Senior Mask Designer (Current Employee) Milpitas, CA (US)

    ProsProfit sharing is good and compensates for mediocre salary

    Middle of the road company to work for.

    Maint Tech (Former Employee) Camas, WA (US)

    ProsGood pay is par to industry averg. Benefits are good. The profit sharing varies, but it is one of the best that I have seen.

    ConsManagement is very difficult to work with. Lots of micro-management, and CYA. It seems like they are all weaving blankets to cover their butts. Will not listen to the front line people. No work/life balence skills what so ever. So jobs have very limited opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower the front line people, listen to what they say.

    Company review

    Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsProducts 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.

    ConsLTC 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 Senior ManagementI 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Decent place for engineers however non-engineering position not so

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDesign is focus on making sure their part is near perfect when release.
    Get to work with some of the best designers around.
    Able to pick the brains for ideas & help.

    ConsNon – engineering personnel is not highly regarded compared to engineers.
    Not many people can utilize the tuition reimbursement.
    Rapid career advancement is unlikely – hierarchy is flat.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to loosen some of the purse-strings – Linear is not willing spend the money thatcan better the company in R&D and the employees.
    Establish a better development program for personnel when becoming managers.

    If you love analog design and want to work for the best analog design house ....

    Applications Engineer (Current Employee) Milpitas, CA (US)

    ProsA chance to work with some of the best analog design engineers in the industry. You will have a chance to learn from the best. Whereas the base salaries may be lower than some to the competing companies, they have some of the most lucrative profit sharing in the industry that more than make up for it.

    ConsThe work environment can be quite aggressive and intimidating. Also, if you are not part of the "in-crowd," you may consider yourself a second class citizen.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLighten' up a bit, please.
