    Great people with current technology.

    Being a Contractor for extended periods was a little disappointing.

    Advice to Management

    Convert contractors to full time rather than keeping them on contract 5+ years.

    Pros

    - Friendly, helpful managers, staff, and personnel. I felt like I was at home on my first day!
    - Well organized, helpful orientation and new-hire process for new college hires
    - Very helpful software systems to get up to date in a hurry
    - Very "laid-back" atmosphere; can get on schedule on my own terms
    - Casual dress!!

    Cons

    - Was difficult in my particular job sometimes to get up-to-date on the software and commands associated with the job because I was the only one to start this month and kind of fell between the cracks as far as orientation for new engineers goes. But they still made the best of it!

    Pros

    GREAT atmosphere. Hours aren't too taxing. If you work on MCU/MPU, most of your work is actually pretty fun. Your co-workers are usually your age and you end up making a lot of friends.

    Cons

    Cafeteria isn't that great. Tends to be a lot of layoffs in the MCU/MPU departments. Difficult to move up.

    Advice to Management

    The tendency is to chop off their foot to save their toe... a lot of revenue going to waste b/c of departmental changes.


  10. Good, conservative company you can grow up with

    Pros

    Been at TI for almost two years. It's a good company to learn a lot early in your career, and the work will always be interesting because TI is involved in all kinds of cutting edge areas. It's a company you can feel proud to work for, good and ethical business practices. Benefits are not sexy, but solid for a large engineering company. Flexible schedule - TI is not a sweatshop, you can put your family and personal life at a higher priority.

    Cons

    Raises are terrible for individual contributors, not sure about those that make it to manager level. Will not see most young engineers sticking around long term unless they love the location, the work, flexible schedule, or the opportunity to move to different roles in the company. Lots of restructuring and bowing to the demands of wallstreet, lining the pockets of investors instead of employees. TI appreciates good engineers, but you are expendable. Layoffs come in big waves every couple of years.

    Advice to Management

    Strategic view is good at 50,000 feet LT level, it's good at execution ground level, but there is some lacking at the 10,000 feet upper/middle management strategy.
