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

Pros

Great place for hardware engineers, silicon designers, especially those skilled in analog. Good compensation and benefits package. Great people to work with. Flexible working hours for engineers.

Cons

Software engineering is underdeveloped discipline. The mindset is that hardware can sell itself. Software serves to just demo hardware.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get more serious about software development. Success in embedded processing market cannot come without high quality software tools and components.

    Pros

    They are good to their employees. Great pay. Great co-workers.

    Cons

    Upper Management style is to re-org or layoff. After a major layoff I went through 2 re-orgs a year for two years then was finally let go myself. A year later they had yet another layoff and re-org.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to the board of directors. Get rid of the good old boy network in Texas and layoff the upper management. It doesn't take any talent to consistently layoff and re-org employees while you pat yourself on the back with bonuses and stock options.
