Good Old Fashioned Corporate America

Anonymous (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at Texas Instruments for more than a year

ProsThere is opportunity for travel and you can easily see how your work impacts the bottom line. It is a sales/revenue focused company.

ConsIt is a sales/revenue focused company through and through. Almost all of upper management is from sales and they won't spare much in the way of "nice to haves" for employees. This is no Google; everything centers around increasing profit/revenue. Everything.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't stress so much about increasing the company's profits and instead focus on making employees happy. You will reduce turnover and increase profits in the long run.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great people to work for

Executive Assistant (Former Employee)
Schaumburg, IL

I worked at Texas Instruments as a contractor for more than 3 years

ProsFlexible, supportive, appreciated all the work I did. My managers were great to work for and the sales staff was wonderful.

ConsI worked for TI for 3 years, but always as a contractor. I would have liked to be an employee with some benefits.

Good first internship

Analog Design Engineer Intern (Former Employee)
Santa Clara, CA

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

ProsTI is a great place for a first internship in the semiconductor space. Lots of resources, different projects going on, and really nice people!

ConsAssigned project was pretty narrow in scope, and it was a little difficult to look for other opportunities. Pay was so-so compared to other bay area opportunities.

Great company as first job

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time for more than 5 years

ProsVery smart people to work with. Very collaborative environment. Can learn as much as you want. Excellent culture to get mentors and mentoring others. Excellent compensation. Overall good work life balance.

ConsOnly people on the fast track seem to get career advances. Upper management not capable and short sighted. Good at the identifying a new market and get in quickly, but not able to fully captivate the market. Always exit quickly whenever things not looking good, lack of long term commitment and investment to any true gamer-changing technologies.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave all diversity in upper management, have more different voices in upper management.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
