    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Job security is high. Benefits for those that have been here for some time are great. Profit sharing is attractive.
    Great company to work for if you are fine with limited growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than industry standards. If you are a newer employee you are now subject to the lower benefit trends that other companies are using. Talent is wasted or not fully utilized. The environment is the same as it was in the 70's. Creative energies are not promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote those with experience and not just by academic credentials. Very limited resources used to grow employees.

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

    Pros

    Flexible-as long as you get your work done, people don't hound you about when you come in or when you leave.
    Intelligent co-workers.
    Family Friendly
    Profit sharing
    opportunity to learn many new things
    many groups within company-can work for TI for a whole career and it would still be like working for multiple companies
    Very dynamic company-changed over time to find growth

    Cons

    Slow advancement if you're not in sales.
    slightly below average compensation for electronics.
    Don't value the applications engineers that make all the difference at this company.
    changing priorities quickly.
    dissolving whole groups without clear, straight talk reasoning from managment
    not a lot of new technology coming out internally-just buy other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your team, don't hold them to impossible administrative checkboxes. Evaluate businesses on a case-by-case basis. Don't try to compare every business to same set of expectations. Be careful of who you move into managment. Great individual contributers don't always make good managers. Value your talent and show them that they are valued so our best people don't keep leaving. Stop hiring designers and marketing "engineers" when your test teams and applications engineers are buried. Stop hiring armies of young sales people that leave in 2 years- incentivize keeping the experienced folks.

    Pros

    Very good benefits & compensation, with opportunities for profit sharing. Most all of the people you work with are extremely talented. Good opportunities to work on new technologies and products. Cool to know that things you work on show up in recognizable consumer products.

    Cons

    Big company
    Stress level at times can be high to deliver
    Company will make tough decisions to get out of a business if it isn't hitting the performance goals they want - result is entire BUs can be hit resulting in RIFs.
