    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly and really implements the open door policy. As an intern, I had a lot of help and support from everyone in the company. As it is a very big company, you can also explore many other options within the company. Easy interview process and you get your decision very fast.

    Cons

    The internships aren't very well paid and that is pretty much the only con that there is.

    I worked at Texas Instruments as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Everybody on the team was supper friendly and helpful. Supervisor are very supportive, and making me feel my job actually matters a lot. There seems to be a lot of opportunity to grow within TI, and they let you try different engineering roles within the team.

    Cons

    Dallas might be too hot for me in the summer, though it was okay this year. Cafeteria food is not so pleasant, but many people do bring lunch to work. Also, it is very hard to live in Dallas without a car.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time

    Pros

    Broad portfolio, providing some level of access to nearly any customer base in the world. High intensity environment, with a strong engineering community to support you.

    Cons

    Currently developing new sales tools and metrics, which has created some gap in customer focus and inconsistency as the organization evolves the tools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The TI portfolio and engineering teams are unrivaled in the semiconductor industry. Focus on exploiting these strengths to build a customer facing, value-add sales force, vs driving purely from numbers.

    Pros

    A great place to grow. You are given significant responsibility as an intern during your first week. Your projects are relevant and important to the success of the company. TI's "open door" policy makes it very easy to find help and to expand your personal network. In my three months here, I met the CEO, EVP, and several SVP's, all of whom were very friendly and very supportive of the intern program.

    Cons

    There is a large learning curve coming in. However, there is plenty of available help to make your on-boarding process smooth. As with any worldwide company, there are many evening conference calls.
