Moral is at an all time low

ADI is not the same company that it used to be. Moral is at an all time low.. I’ve never in my 35+ years have ever seen it this bad. This started before COVID and has just gotten worse. I feel like when they took the service awards away that was the straw. People have the “I don’t care” attitude” It’s a shame. Used to be a great place to work. You felt respected and valued. It’s a shame.

Exactly what @jwlg+16B5Xtq3 said! I hope the OP doesn't mind the repost, I wanted more people to see it.

After leaving ADI due to its shear incompetency -especially at a mid & Sr level... I did some reflection over my career and see many tech companies across this nation are afflicted with the same disease. They have lost their way in engineering development methodologies instead, blindly following the latest trends thinly veiled as 'The only path to scalability'. There are no longer core-development infrastructure competencies especially at a human level. IT SHOWS BY THE CONSISTANT REORGANIZATIONS TAKING PLACE! It's now all about eliminating organically created product (see M&As), remote 'MATRIXED' teams, remote management, remote/hands-off/lowest cost manufacturing [to some distant island run by dictators - no worries there], remote learning etc. The vision for 'build the best and get excited about the future' have been replaced by constantly teaching your 'latest' manager or VP how to make proper decisions and manage human beings - then sell your direct reports the latest corporate BS.
The latest trend seems to be "No one is directly accountable. Inclusiveness means we manage by committee and [political] influence. We don't want expertise in a broad sense". The last one makes sense from a strategic/MBA viewpoint. It's easy to replace someone in a pigeon ho-e... much harder if they hold keys to multiple areas of expertise.
Retirement is around the corner - but that means I'll have the time to start exploring a business that makes me happy. Maybe it's homemade ice cream treats out of a truck - selling to a bunch of rich kids (AKA tech CEOs) on a remote island...

This is an old thread but I would say it’s even lower now. No one cares anymore, it’s chaos, lots of quits now, management sticks to the official narrative and ignores it all burning down around them.

No need to pay RSU, ESPP to MXIM employees. First evaluate whether they are worth to pay salary and decide.

How does the total compensation compare at ADI as compared to other companies ona relative basis? Coming from the MXIM side and this immenent acquisition. Heard compensation is different in that there is no rsu's, espp. Is it made up in other areas?

Thanks for re-iterating, it's also interesting how ADI's rating fell on Glassdoor, it's now rubbing elbows with the likes of Qorvo, Maxim (obviously) and Motorola, lower than Microchip, TI, and much lower than Silicon Labs. Pity.
