    I worked at Texas Instruments full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Information technology is respected as a needed function at TI which is a technology company.

    Cons

    Each few years the size of the IT group has been reduced by either a Reduction In Force (RIF) or early retirement or both. The IT group has suffered as a result of this with increased work loads and decreased appreciation from the business as the business users are unable to get the help that they need with computer software/hardware issues. IT is not viewed as a core competency and has been increasingly out-sourced to the detriment of TI, in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are your biggest asset. Not buildings, not Intellectual property, not your bank account and stock value. TI will continue to have it's value decrease as long as the employees are not appreciated and RIFs continue. You are no longer a growth business.
