    Pros

    Great people and ethical culture. Texas is also an awesome place for lifestyle and has a vibrant technology industry.

    Cons

    too conservative in terms of how they approach going after big opportunities and creating new parts for customers. need more aggressive and creative edge to win out in the marketplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They have top-notch management. If anything, they should spend more time in front of customers to get a better pulse for what is really happening in the market.

    Pros

    For the most part, coworkers and management are respectful. There are many opportunities outside of your actual role to be involved in interesting projects and meet others outside your work group.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is an illusion and the politics will make or break your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you make decisions, please support the implementation as well. I can't tell you how many times some directive came down then the middle management squashed its intention, creating a mess of moral.

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

    Pros

    Overall great place to work. If you are doing an excellent job and build up some credit there are many different opportunities inside the company to move to and try out. Management more often than not tries to support your career goals or helps accommodating specific personal situations.

    Cons

    Org changes sometimes happen more often than I wish. Also history has shown that unexpected and drastic layoffs can happen anytime due to changes in corporate direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the folks at the end of the reporting chain a little more advance warning so that larger changes don't catch people too off-guard. Also sometimes it's worth communicating some of the little details and reasons as well - you think why should people care but they do.
