Good overall experience so far. Don't know what the future holds though.

    Pros

    Been at TI for almost two years. It's a good company to learn a lot early in your career, and the work will always be interesting because TI is involved in all kinds of cutting edge areas. It's a company you can feel proud to work for, good and ethical business practices. Benefits are not sexy, but solid for a large engineering company. Flexible schedule - TI is not a sweatshop, you can put your family and personal life at a higher priority.

    Cons

    Raises are terrible for individual contributors, not sure about those that make it to manager level. Will not see most young engineers sticking around long term unless they love the location, the work, flexible schedule, or the opportunity to move to different roles in the company. Lots of restructuring and bowing to the demands of wallstreet, lining the pockets of investors instead of employees. TI appreciates good engineers, but you are expendable. Layoffs come in big waves every couple of years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strategic view is good at 50,000 feet LT level, it's good at execution ground level, but there is some lacking at the 10,000 feet upper/middle management strategy.

    You learn a lot, but it's difficult to move up in software unless you know someone.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments

    Pros

    GREAT atmosphere. Hours aren't too taxing. If you work on MCU/MPU, most of your work is actually pretty fun. Your co-workers are usually your age and you end up making a lot of friends.

    Cons

    Cafeteria isn't that great. Tends to be a lot of layoffs in the MCU/MPU departments. Difficult to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The tendency is to chop off their foot to save their toe... a lot of revenue going to waste b/c of departmental changes.
