Not a bad place to work, but can be a struggle to get ahead.

Equipment Technician (Current Employee) Sherman, TX

ProsThe company is good about work/life balance. Everyone seems to be treated fairly. While people make the usual complaints about management, I have found it to be a little better than other places I've worked.

ConsManagers will tell you they "pay for performance," but in reality the same top dogs always get the good raises. TI uses an odd performance evaluation formula. Employees are ranked against each other. The top 10% get the bulk of the raises, the bottom 10% get nothing and are put on administrative counseling, the remaining 80% splits the remaining budget. Sound reasonable until you realize, in a department full of awesome, outstanding technicians, someone is still in the bottom 10%.

Positions in management require a bachelor degree. Many managers are engineers who have no people skills.

Advice to Senior ManagementDrop the "Top 10%/Bottom 10%" rule. It's demeaning to your employees.

Promote from the ranks. Experience and leadership ability are far more important than a degree.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
