    I have been working at Texas Instruments

    Pros

    3-4 days a week, decent vacation time, veteran friendly, lots of prior military techs and management, has a technical ladder that you can move up, 15% night shift bonus

    Cons

    12 hour days plus the drive to and from, possible mandatory night shift

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your managers are getting management training. I haven't ran into anyone bad yet but some feel un-polished and inexperienced even though they have had years in that position.

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

    Pros

    They have a good culture of people development and I grew a lot in my career there with the help of some great managers and mentors. Compensation was good for the area and I was able to take risks and work on some awesome products. I have no regrets about the time I spent there and still talk to many former colleagues.

    Cons

    Too frugal with equipment. Once I had an employee whose laptop had issues to the point of being unusable and it took months to get approval for the replacement.

    TI has a proud, rich history of innovation, but it seems to be fading in recent years as the focus has moved to simpler chips with a lower R&D cost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your employees aren't ever slowed down by lack of equipment that costs less than their salaries. Think about building long term technologies and the R&D roadmaps to get there.
