ProsThe openness of experienced members in and across departments and groups is phenomenal - anyone is willing to help out a colleague.

ConsFeedback from upper level management can be hard to spot at times. Restructuring of management is a great improvement to create a better symbiotic relationship.

Extremely pleasant

ProsTexas Instruments is a good learning place. A lot of skilled professionals work here on state of the art technology.

ConsIts a very huge organization and the chances of climbing up the professional ladder are slimmer than being in a start up company.

Great place to learn and grow

ProsTI offers so many different opportunities in one place, lots of flexibility to try new roles and take on different challenges. Great colleagues who always want to help, very open discussions. High standard of ethics.

ConsIt's a big company, so things can sometimes move slowly. You need to be persistent to make things happen here. Leaders can sometimes be too customer focused.

Fun challenges alway available; everyone is extremely busy.

Senior Member of Technical Staff (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at Texas Instruments

ProsThere are plenty of talented people around. Very competitive compensation packages and generous profit sharing. Tremendous focus on being number one in analog circuit design. This has been the clear focus evolving over the past decade and it looks to pay off.

ConsPeople are extremely busy. TI had large layoffs in late 2008 and early 2009. Since then, revenues are way up but groups continue to be short-staffed.

Managers at all levels need some people skill training. TI has pushed its managers to be outward focused and therefore they are lacking basic talent management skills.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep some continuity in the management. Stop shuffling managers every two years. Promote experienced people to lead business units. We have too many people with no management experience and no direct knowledge of technology development given the reigns of $200M businesses. Most are doomed to fail.
