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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Big company with many different groups. If you are assertive, you can try out many different things. But there are many people who get stuck doing a single task. Over time, the value of that task decreaces until the next riff ... then you are out of luck.

    The culture and benifits is better than any other place that I have worked at. For the most part good ideas win against senior staff flexing their influence.

    Cons

    Possible to get lost in the crowd. There are many people who are more politically connected that will go farther than those that are not.
    Also the treatment from management is largly dependent on the profitability of your group at the time.

    Advice to Management

    Think more long term instead of grinding out quarterly results. Bring back the days of having a big long term vision.
