Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) started in 1965 and has since developed into one of the foremost companies producing semiconductors. Beyond producing semiconductors, Analog Devices develops technology that can process waves, such as light waves, sound waves, and other pressure waves, into signals that can be used in electronic equipment. As digital signal processing has becoming more prevalent in devices including audio devices, radar, sonar, and biomedical devices, Analog Devices has been able to innovate beyond analog into digital signal processing. This has helped them stay competitive in recent years.
Analog Devices culture could be described as professional and traditional with a strong emphasis on empowering employees to solve technical problems. A focus on both existing customer needs and a look to the future with technological trends has created a unique work environment that employees have described as a "great place to work" and "technically challenging". This company values employees and recognizes them as their greatest asset. One other aspect and focus that they have is on technological breakthroughs and innovation. They describe their culture as "entrepreneurial". The ability of engineers to innovate and subsequently be rewarded for that innovation is a main component of the company culture.
Analog Devices careers consist primarily of engineers, account management, sales and marketing, and the supporting staff for these organizations. With 5000+ employees, there are several types of roles for those looking into working at ADI. The company did $2.8 billion in sales in 2010 and has been able to grow despite the up and down nature of the economy over the past 2 decades.
