    I have been working at Texas Instruments

    Pros

    3-4 days a week, decent vacation time, veteran friendly, lots of prior military techs and management, has a technical ladder that you can move up, 15% night shift bonus

    Cons

    12 hour days plus the drive to and from, possible mandatory night shift

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your managers are getting management training. I haven't ran into anyone bad yet but some feel un-polished and inexperienced even though they have had years in that position.

    I worked at Texas Instruments full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Company culture is great, perks are great. Most importantly, the people are very smart, driven and excellent to work with. Management is transparent and respects employees.

    Cons

    Nothing big here. Difficult for employees to understand the broad picture of where the company is heading from the management. But since the work is always exciting, this can hardly be noticed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hesitate from diversifying the business, even by exploring hitherto unexplored territory. Rediscovery has been part of TI's culture, and should continue, instead of sticking to just selling electronic chips.

    Pros

    Employee benefits and a culture that revolves around integrity.

    Cons

    The workload is seemingly insurmountable and there is a lot of pressure on management to keep producing new products. This pressure trickles downwards to the engineers building the devices.

    I worked at Texas Instruments

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is it's a good place to start and get experience & training. Good employee stock option programs.

    Cons

    The challenges of working is the management has a blase "stay or go" attitude towards employees. The pay lacks behind industry standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize your employees abilities and compensate them accordingly to keep talent within the company and grow the company.
