    Large organization, slow to make needed changes. Sometimes frequent changes in leadership completely redirects you efforts and duties.

    Pros

    One of the best Analog portfolios. Lots to learn. GREAT internship program.

    Cons

    Used to drive for innovation in new, emerging fields. But decided to scale back & concentrate only on Analog & Micro-controller. Somewhat Political environment Scaling down investments and reducing R&D size has been continuing.

    Pros

    Great access to experts in almost any electronics field (RF, power, processors -- really anything), many chances for training.

    Cons

    Hard to escape the struggles of any big company. Often feel as if you're not in a position to move the needle much.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time

    Pros

    Relatively stress free, great benefits. Good work environment, nice main campus building.

    Cons

    Must be very vocal. Technical concerns usually overruled by business needs. Harder to move around in the company than others.

    Advice to Management

    Keep constant communication with employees, give positive feedback

    Pros

    - Company is invested in your career development - Opportunity to gain a broad base of knowledge in various business functions - Working in an environment that constantly gives you new challenges - ACCESS rotation program - Major sponsor of the arts and education in the Dallas area

    Cons

    TI is a company that was built by engineers and will always be run by engineers. Not a bad thing in of itself, just note that their is a limitation to how high you can go without an engineering background.

    Advice to Management

    The company is well run, and a great place to work. However, I believe that there will be some difficulty in attracting new talent, because of the location. Dallas is a big city that feels more like just one endless shopping mall. There isn't much depth to it, and this will make it hard to attract those who are used to either the college town feel or the culture common to a large city.

    Pros

    Mostly everyone in the office is friendly and relaxed. Workload was never too heavy; flexible work, no hand-holding, TI leaves developer interns to do as they please

    Cons

    No flexible work hours; no telecommuting options for employees. Much of an older crowd; very conservative, traditional, few younger people working for the company, at least on this side of the house

    Advice to Management

    Have a plan for your interns; if you have a hole in your team, hiring an intern to work during the summer and potentially come back to fill that hole is a great idea. You can't just hire interns without having a defined plan on what they will be doing during their time, though.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great corporate culture, people are being treated with respect. Many opportunities for advancement available. Company promotes team work but individuals are being recognized at the same time. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of position, work-life balance is challenging sometimes. Definitely not a 9-5 job, so always connected. Lots of pressure from production.

    Advice to Management

    Never hurts to ask for a better work-life balance. Working remotely would be a nice benefit for some positions. Dedicate one day every couple of weeks to having a team lunch or outing would enhance team communication in an informal environment.
