Current Employee - Embedded Software Engineer in Dallas, TX

I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Salary is good because of the location in Texas where things are cheaper relatively. You can find and interact with a variety of experts - software, algorithms, systems, digital, analog.

Cons

Lack of technical leadership where decisions are driven by non-technical Program Managers and Sales Managers. Program managers managing technical developers doesn't seem to be effective. Engineering managers with good understanding are required.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Program Managers do not seem to be effective and many competitors don't have program managers.

    Former Employee - Factory Automation Software Engineer  in  Dallas, TX
    Former Employee - Factory Automation Software Engineer in Dallas, TX

    I worked at Texas Instruments full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits and profit sharing, fast paced, challenging work.

    Cons

    Software technologies used at TI (i.e. TI AutoShell) are not 'standard' so the skills gained are not transferrable. I have heard, however, that Java was in consideration to replace TI AutoShell. Factory automation is important but be aware that if the fab will become 100% automated, there will be a very reduced need for software engineers so, expect a reduction in staff in that case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish a mentoring program to assist employees new to the company and industry.

    Former Employee - Intern  in  Dallas, TX
    Former Employee - Intern in Dallas, TX

    I worked at Texas Instruments as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Very relaxed culture and coworkers were always willing to help. They care about your development and support you with classes. Good performance is also rewarded. People are not pigeon-holed to positions because of time with company. If you are a strong performer, you will rise quicker than others. They also offer shuttle services so you can save money on transportation. Dallas is a relatively cheap place to live and the tax policy is great in Texas.

    Cons

    One may not enjoy Dallas
