I have been working at Texas Instruments

Pros

Texas Instruments is a great place to work in two scenarios: (1) you are a career starter and need someplace to get your bearings with decent exposure to technology, or (2) you are looking at an impending retirement and for a chance to simply while away your time with benefits.

Cons

TI's first big downside is the retirement home mentality ingrained within the organization. This is quite frustrating. The atmosphere severely lacks motivation, enthusiasm and sense of ownership and pride.

Second, the company overall seems to have entirely lost its sense of direction. It wastes enormous quantities of time and resources chasing around after incredibly stupid projects that never see the light of day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

First and foremost - FOCUS! Think of a viable strategy and stick to it.

Next, get some spirit and drive into this company. A culture change is badly required.

    I worked at Texas Instruments

    Pros

    Texas Instruments is a laid back company. The summer I worked there (summer 2008), it was a pretty easy job as a software development co-op. The pay is pretty good, and I got a job offer without trying hard with a pretty good starting salary. The main building is pretty cool when you walk down the central hall, with skylights and trees. It seems that it is hard to fail in this company.

    Cons

    The office space is a bit drab, row after row of beige cubicles really takes it out of you. While the work I did was easy, it was pretty boring, and I found myself struggling to stay awake in the morning hours. The people that worked around me were not especially nice, and I was unable to get to know any full-time employees, although I made several friends that were co-ops. My particular co-op assignment was in a small group with no other co-ops, so I worked by myself pretty much all the time, which was boring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the work more fun. Increase collaborative work.
