    Pros

    Ethical company, good recognition system

    Cons

    "Real" decision making limited to VP level. Site/branch level act as if they are making decision and section level manages have given up even acting to be decision makers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decentralize. Trust section and branch level more to make sound $ judgement. Every item should not need VP approval.

    Former Employee - Applications Engineer  in  Houston, TX

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

    Pros

    Open door policy, diverse client-base, variety of products, flat organization with relatively fewer hierarchies, research and application of cutting edge technology, global offices, and friendly work culture.

    Cons

    Because of relatively flat organization, chances of having direct subordinates are small for most of the employees, thus sometimes depriving them from practicing people management skills.
