    Pros

    TI has a great reputation and tremendous wealth which it generously pays...

    Cons

    ... but this reputation and wealth appears to be the result of it's success in the 1970's. The R&D processes here could never match the old style.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop chasing your gray-haired people out the door! They bring wisdom to your young design teams!

    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.

  6.  

    Great Internship opportunity. TI really values their Interns and New College Grads.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments as an intern for less than a year

    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.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    TI has a great internship program that really provides you with marketable skills in the semiconductor business. I was given a lot of responsibility by designing something new that will go into future parts and improving the process of design verification. There are a lot of opportunities to improve your technical skills and see how things are done in the real world. The benefits are good, and the company provides a small amount for relocation expenses. There is also a lot of diversity and a lot of emphasis placed on innovation.

    Cons

    Job security. The company has made a goal to make analog and embedded a large part of their business, so job security is an issue if you aren't working in one of those two areas.
