An American tech giant crumbling in the hands of sales-heavy executives.

Manager (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

I worked at Texas Instruments full-time for more than 5 years

ProsLow cost of living in Dallas. Work-life balance. Flexible hours.

ConsTI's business principle is to avoid competition. If it's already late in a market, it is happy to stay out and never join the party. If it is already in but others start showing up, it happily drops the ball, drives the business to the ground and leaves it all behind. Basically, TI chooses not to compete (let's not get into why). This mode of operation is most disturbing for the technically talented. You might be very good at what you do and strive to stay on top of your trade, but you know that it is only a matter of time before TI will leave your area, selling out entire businesses or shutting them down. It is not a question of if, but a question of when. Most recent victims are a bunch of digital businesses.

Advice to Senior ManagementI am really really sorry, but you are running a technology company, so it's about time technical teams help you put together a strategy. This will surely turn out better than current mode of operation (no vision, no strategy, no roadmap). This will catch up with you sooner or later. Top executive ranks are all from sales; you cannot innovate your way in technology with a top-down hard-core sales mentality driving everything in the company.

Just started, but so far so great!

Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time for less than a year

Pros- Friendly, helpful managers, staff, and personnel. I felt like I was at home on my first day!
- Well organized, helpful orientation and new-hire process for new college hires
- Very helpful software systems to get up to date in a hurry
- Very "laid-back" atmosphere; can get on schedule on my own terms
- Casual dress!!

Cons- Was difficult in my particular job sometimes to get up-to-date on the software and commands associated with the job because I was the only one to start this month and kind of fell between the cracks as far as orientation for new engineers goes. But they still made the best of it!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

IC Design Engineer (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

I worked at Texas Instruments full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood compensation and good benefits.
