    Stable company

    Associate (Current Employee) Stafford, TX

    ProsJob security is high. Benefits for those that have been here for some time are great. Profit sharing is attractive.
    Great company to work for if you are fine with limited growth opportunities.

    ConsPay is lower than industry standards. If you are a newer employee you are now subject to the lower benefit trends that other companies are using. Talent is wasted or not fully utilized. The environment is the same as it was in the 70's. Creative energies are not promoted.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote those with experience and not just by academic credentials. Very limited resources used to grow employees.

    Big, Friendly company with many opportunities and strong future if they focus more on the real people that add value

    Field Applications Engineer (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsFlexible-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

    ConsSlow 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 Senior ManagementEmpower 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.

    Good place to work, lots of talented people

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsVery good benefits & compensation, with opportunities for profit sharing. Most all of the people you work with are extremely talented. Good opportunities to work on new technologies and products. Cool to know that things you work on show up in recognizable consumer products.

    ConsBig company
    Stress level at times can be high to deliver
    Company will make tough decisions to get out of a business if it isn't hitting the performance goals they want - result is entire BUs can be hit resulting in RIFs.
