    Pros

    Been TIer since 2006-2013 as multiple titles, it is a good place to build up your knowledge and career especially in analog field. TI experience is with high reputation for analog technology, such as power management and high precision analog. With TI experience, it is very easy to jump into big companies or other industries.

    Cons

    The company emphasizes too much on business instead of technology. TI is supposed to be a good engineering base company not business. If employee survives in TI, the technical skill not only is required, also the luck is important. There are too much layoff rounds.

    Advice to Management

    Do not play too much business strategies, please focus on the foundation of company. Reduce the layoff frequency and let employee feel more job security

    Pros

    Products, benefits, working conditions and peers.

    Cons

    Short term mindset, narrow focus on analog, not as cohesive in terms of "team spirit" as you would find at a startup.

    Advice to Management

    Look for the next big thing....outside of Semiconductors (where is TI's Elon Musk?)

    Pros

    Invests in the employees. People make the company. Great growth semiconductor company and great place to work for. Profit sharing and stock options are great benefits.

    Cons

    Was slow to pick on smartphone mobile market. Stayed too long with Nokia older technologies instead of focusing on higher growth areas like mobile devices. Needs to be aggressive and more innovative.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in innovation instead of sticking to older technologies. Become a leader in semiconductor you once were. Be more competitive in benefits and compensation.

    Pros

    Get to work on fun projects and learn a lot.

    Cons

    Maybe the compensation is a little low. But the benefits help to make up for it and the relatively low cost of living in Houston.

    Advice to Management

    There is a little too much bureaucracy.

    interesting work, good coworkers, work/life balance is good. competitive compensation/benefits, education assistance, etc.

    resources seem constrained, not enough manpower and lab resources allocated on projects, this results in time wasted looking for equipment, missed project milestones, etc

    hire more staff or update project timelines to be more realistic

    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.
