Not a bad place to work

Software Design Engineer (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

I worked at Texas Instruments full-time for more than a year

ProsGood place to grow your technical skills, especially if you are in embedded software domain. To make the best use of the position, one might have to go and do projects over and beyond his routine defect fixes though. There is freedom and opportunities to learn. If you have not worked in any other big silicon company, there is a good chance that you'll love this company. The moment you know what is out there, things might look different.

ConsLot of mismanagement, micromanagement. Many managers regurgitate what they hear from engineers under them. This makes you needing to do a lot of advertising oneself to climb the ladder, also get to be some manager's personal favorite. That's what helps. Very few cares about how technically capable you are.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Worked as a consultant there for 12 years

Senior Design Engineer (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

I worked at Texas Instruments as a contractor for more than 10 years

ProsHas many creative engineers and did many bleeding edge wireless designs. Had many managers who cared about their people at first

ConsNo job stability. Jettisoned any truly challenging design work such as applications processors. Schedules are overly aggressive. Management has the attitude that engineers are 'a dime a dozen' in my opinion in many different businees units. Even though there is work at home flexibility it is nearly impossible for employees to disengage from their work life after hours.

Advice to Senior ManagementDefine schedules on projects that do not cause employees to burn out. Uncomped overtime seems the rule rather than the exception and it really sucks.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Amazing opportunity to develop engineering skills with TI's Product Engineering Rotation Program!

Product Engineer (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

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

ProsTI saw a need to develop Product Engineers quickly. To do so, they created something that crams years and years of experience into a concise two year program. I have the amazing opportunity to work with four completely separate groups that all tie back into my work as a product engineer. This type of exposure so early on in my career is the thing others dream about.

Additionally, TI has such a wide portfolio of parts that I am always able to satisfy my curiosity and desire to learn. I can dive deep and learn all about the device physics of a certain part, or I can go broad and learn all about a family of devices and how they operate. And when I get tired of those, I can repeat the process with other devices.

ConsThe only thing that people might consider a "con" is the fact that this job REQUIRES you to move abroad for 6 months. However, I don't consider that a negative thing. In fact, that was one of the main selling points for this rotation program.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to invest and inspire the New College Grads.

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