    Decent company overall but nothing great for Software Engineers.

    Current Employee - Embedded Software Engineer in Dallas, TX

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time (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

    I worked at Texas Instruments full-time (more than an 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.
