    Pros

    Great team, good people. You will work on cuttig edge technolgies within the embedded world in a professional team with high standards fir code quality.

    Cons

    Much of the work involves intricate details of operating systems, which can be either very exciting or very dry, depending on the person. Team camaraderie can be lacking, many people keep themselves to themselves, hanging out outside if the office not common.

    Advice to Management

    Resources are super constrained right now. Developers can't make miracles happen, we are humans and our output is limited. Expecting the same results with a smaller team is unrealistic and unfair to everyone.

    Pros

    TI invests in employees - there are multiple chances for training and movement within the organization. You will work for very smart people, for the most part. I miss working with engineers who are business-savvy. Lots of opportunities to work on a variety of projects that are meaningful to the company. The people who work there are genuinely GOOD people!

    Cons

    Old-school company with stale work environment. Many of the systems (especially for the web) are incredibly out-of-date and antiquated, especially for a tech company. Marketing there can be old-fashioned and behind-the-times. TI is changing the world with their technology but the atmosphere in which you work in is extremely dry.

    Advice to Management

    It's important to make people feel appreciated and valued. Oftentimes the atmosphere is tense because even in my 2 short years, I saw many rounds of layoffs (even though the business was doing well.) I'm not sure employees know their worth, which saddens me.

    Pros

    Diversified portfolio of broad market devices selling to a variety of customers in multiple industries at respectable margins.

    Cons

    Company can be slow to act and conservative in its thinking. Avoiding risks is very important, it is a "safe" company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on generating long term revenue and continue moving away from focusing only on quarterly revenue numbers and instead focusing on 2-3 year out revenue targets.

    Pros

    Enjoyed the position very much. I worked well with everyone I came in contact with. I have nothing but high marks for all engineering I worked with. The stress level was just right. Managers and supervisors were always there to help. Exciting changes all the time. DLP back-end equipment was one of the best times of my career.

    Cons

    got married and moved out of state. Was not given enough time to train even thou I gave two months notice. I was given somebody to train till just days before I left. Most of my open projects failed because of that. I felt bad but had to disconnect due to relocating issues. Since then, I have tried to come back and can't even get a email back with any applications I have sent in.

    Advice to Management

    I loved the culture and would like to come back. If my transition out was unfavorable, I was not the blame. If there is a chance to come back as an employee, I would be interested.

    Pros

    The company is always straight with employees and customer. They have the highest ethical standards. You always know where you stand as an employee. The depth of experienced people and breadth of activities make it a great place to learn.

    Cons

    They can be rather risk averse, so if you are looking for high stakes big projects, this is not the place for you. They can be slow to organize for success.

    Advice to Management

    You should be a bit faster to organize for where the business is going to minimize overlap and fighting between groups. The management structure needs a few more creative people to balance the operational types.
