    Current Employee - Field Applications Engineer in Dallas, TX

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

    Pros

    Flexible-as long as you get your work done, people don't hound you about when you come in or when you leave.
    Intelligent co-workers.
    Family Friendly
    Profit sharing
    opportunity to learn many new things
    many groups within company-can work for TI for a whole career and it would still be like working for multiple companies
    Very dynamic company-changed over time to find growth

    Cons

    Slow advancement if you're not in sales.
    slightly below average compensation for electronics.
    Don't value the applications engineers that make all the difference at this company.
    changing priorities quickly.
    dissolving whole groups without clear, straight talk reasoning from managment
    not a lot of new technology coming out internally-just buy other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your team, don't hold them to impossible administrative checkboxes. Evaluate businesses on a case-by-case basis. Don't try to compare every business to same set of expectations. Be careful of who you move into managment. Great individual contributers don't always make good managers. Value your talent and show them that they are valued so our best people don't keep leaving. Stop hiring designers and marketing "engineers" when your test teams and applications engineers are buried. Stop hiring armies of young sales people that leave in 2 years- incentivize keeping the experienced folks.

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

    Pros

    Stable, ethical company with great people that really care about the company and like their work.

    Cons

    As with most large companies, projects can be difficult to move forward due to multiple reasons (cost restrictions, policies, etc.). Sometimes suffers from too many chefs in the kitchen syndrome, too many different groups wanting things done their way or not at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow groups more autonomy in creating solutions. We tend to get stuck in old ways instead of being allowed to pursue new and creative methods that could save the company money or move us forward technologically.
