Current Employee - Manager in Dallas, TX
Current Employee - Manager in Dallas, TX

I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Depending on your job type you can do your work well and rewarded.

Cons

If you are in a management or strategic position, the politics are counter productive.
The buzz word accountability has become to mean that "stuff" rolls down hill.
Very few people at the GM level or above will openly take responsibility.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Move back to advancing to people with proven track records.
Make sure that new people or business managers have demonstrated the required skills in earlier roles.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you want to just come to work and do a job until you retire this is the place for you. Software development is secondary to any Engineering or Manufacturing so innovation turns really slowly in the Applications/Automations develop areas. If your halfway good this is a really easy gig that you can probably do in 8 hours a week of work and surf the net for the rest of the week (sans meetings).

    Cons

    Work with proprietary frameworks that no one ont the planet other than TI employees have heard of. Coding standards are non-existent. No one has heard the terms of Technical Debt, factory pattern, or IOC. Low pay compared to market. Much of the commodity IT is being moved over seas so you need to stay up nights talking with them on the phone since they can't work during our hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the future of your IT staff. Upper management stays that we have training but middle management turns down training requests.
