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

    Pros

    Brilliant minds, fast paced work environment (of course, depends on your position and team), lots to learn. Good compensation.

    Cons

    Depending on your team, you may or may not get visibility with upper management for your contributions/success. I have been lucky to have good, ambitious supervisors but know of others who are not so lucky.
    Travel to customer sites is usually restricted to upper echelons of management. Frequent restructuring while understandable financially, can tend to demotivate employees if the reasons are not clearly and crisply specified.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more frequently with your employees.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits and global exposure. Very few managers are decent and care about employee growth. Others (and most of them) just screw employees so that they look good in front of their management.

    Cons

    Care only about the share price, not interested in investing in R&D. Too siloed and no one seems to care about each other. Just doing good work is not enough. Have to please a lot of incompetent people to keep yourself employed. Not a place for creative thinking anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are human. Treat them as such.

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

    Pros

    Mostly employee orientated until your group/division is seen as not relevant.

    Cons

    Top heavy and driven by upper management that are little more than bean counters. No regard to innovation or staying abreast of technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change!!

    Current Employee - Business Planner in Dallas, TX

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    * Management is upfront and honest
    * Pay is solid
    * Team-first environment
    * For the most part they focus on the important metrics

    Cons

    * Lots of management overview aka lots of TPS Reports
    * Difficult to do overseas assignments unless you are top management
    * No opportunity to advance unless you live in Dallas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Improve HR Department. They are unhelpful.
    * Put more emphasis on internal technology. Laptop policies are absurd.
    * Work environment matters. No more cubicles and invest in improving the old worn down buildings that we work in.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company Culture:
    Company encourages creative involvement of every employee.
    There is a constant push to improve processes - to make processes more efficient and not accept things as is
    Great work/life balance (of course depends on the type of role you are in)
    Flexibility in work schedule as far as ability to work from home
    Great benefits for top performers - options, RSUs etc.

    Cons

    Base salary increases are nominal
    Artificial diversity being created in management roles (does not appear to be based on talent)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not drive diversity for namesake. Let promotions be driven by talent.

    Since TI is such a big company, you'll have to deal with office politics and know how to play the game in order to become successful.
