    Pros

    Diversified portfolio of broad market devices selling to a variety of customers in multiple industries at respectable margins.

    Cons

    Company can be slow to act and conservative in its thinking. Avoiding risks is very important, it is a "safe" company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on generating long term revenue and continue moving away from focusing only on quarterly revenue numbers and instead focusing on 2-3 year out revenue targets.

    Flexible time, exposure to new technology and smart people to work with.

    Company doesn't seem interested to pursue the latest trend of technology.

    Pros

    Broad range of electronics component offerings offer stable future. Changing positions within company is promoted which offers a diverse work experience, personal growth and job satisfaction. Excellent communication of company strategy and how each employee contributes to success.

    Cons

    A small percentage of managers and supervisors practice bullying which taints some employee, supplier & customer experiences.

    Advice to Management

    Rather than promoting managers because they look like the customer, promote managers who follow TI high standards.

    Pros

    Enjoyed the position very much. I worked well with everyone I came in contact with. I have nothing but high marks for all engineering I worked with. The stress level was just right. Managers and supervisors were always there to help. Exciting changes all the time. DLP back-end equipment was one of the best times of my career.

    Cons

    got married and moved out of state. Was not given enough time to train even thou I gave two months notice. I was given somebody to train till just days before I left. Most of my open projects failed because of that. I felt bad but had to disconnect due to relocating issues. Since then, I have tried to come back and can't even get a email back with any applications I have sent in.

    Advice to Management

    I loved the culture and would like to come back. If my transition out was unfavorable, I was not the blame. If there is a chance to come back as an employee, I would be interested.

    Pros

    The company is always straight with employees and customer. They have the highest ethical standards. You always know where you stand as an employee. The depth of experienced people and breadth of activities make it a great place to learn.

    Cons

    They can be rather risk averse, so if you are looking for high stakes big projects, this is not the place for you. They can be slow to organize for success.

    Advice to Management

    You should be a bit faster to organize for where the business is going to minimize overlap and fighting between groups. The management structure needs a few more creative people to balance the operational types.
