    Pros

    Texas Instruments is still consider a good company Some good people still left in the company Dallas is one of the most affordable cities

    Cons

    Texas instruments is not the leading edge company that it used to be several years ago. Main business has become analogue with other areas being cut or closed. SW is consider secondary and SW engineers are really not paid at the same level as SW eng. in SW companies. TI much or less has re-orgs and layoffs every year (sometimes twice a year), more so since Rich Templeton became CEO (this is the only area he excels at) My advice/survival guide for those SW eng. planning to join TI (assuming TI is your only option) is: 1. Become buddies with decision makers, this will come handy when layoffs come your way 2. Be political, don't rock the boa (specially if you are right) as you will be the first one in the layoff list 2. Don't kill yourself at work, due enough to get the job done and more importantly stand out as the problem solver even if you created the problem 4. Layoffs are inevitable, just be prepare and you will be OK if you master 1 and 2 above 5. Stay long enough to get good experience and then find a company where you can build a career (TI is not the place for SW eng.), advice is to stay 2-3 years then find something better Dallas has very few high tech companies, hence it will be hard to find something else after layoffs. I agree with others that TI facilities are "ghetto", where cubes are 20+ years and forget about free coffee or any other common perks available from companies making as much or less money than TI.

    Advice to Management

    Not much since management at TI does not listen or care about long term strategy or people


  2. I have had a great career at TI over multiple decades.

    Pros

    I have worked with world class engineers throughout my career while moving between development teams and business units several times as opportunities occurred. Compensation has been reasonable and long term contribution is regcognized and rewarded. Lots of good people with an environment to learn and grow. Overall an excellent place to work.

    Cons

    Software development has never been highly regarded. It is more a means to an end to deliver hardware instead of a value adder to product lines. Not much focus on how to make products easier to use and incorporate into customer designs.

    Advice to Management

    There is dire lack of system engineering within the company. Too much focus is placed on how to sell individual parts without a deep understanding of customer needs. With the right mix of HW, SW, Technical Documentation, Tools and system experience customers will roll in and revenue increase
