    Pros

    TI provides great benefits: competitive salary, annual stock options and grants, employee stock purchase plan, vacation, 401K with matching, profit sharing and sales bonus if in sales department.
    Great portfolio for every application. Unbeatable price for their customers.
    Great factory and support staff. Competent technical and sales staff.

    Cons

    It seems like TI has turned into less innovation and more me too, low cost product company.
    Hiring fresh engineering graduate students with no real experience and after short in-house training assign them as sales engineers supporting customers. As expected some don't make it.
    Sales staff are unhappy with the latest company accounting practices, finding this immortalizing and wasteful.
    Sales staff performance is highly effected by constant price discounting.
    Some Senior management believes is leading with fear, intimidation and bullying.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the employees with respect and provide some positive feedback.

    Pros

    Lots of smart and hard working people, lots of IP resources and training opportunities. Relatively decent pay and training environment for fresh graduates.

    Cons

    The office politics and good ole boy networks are everywhere. No upward career path at all if you plan to stay in the company long term.
    Upper management have no vision longer than a year.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your engineers as people instead of tools and resources. focusing on a real long term plan for the company instead of next quarter's financial results

    Pros

    They have a good culture of people development and I grew a lot in my career there with the help of some great managers and mentors. Compensation was good for the area and I was able to take risks and work on some awesome products. I have no regrets about the time I spent there and still talk to many former colleagues.

    Cons

    Too frugal with equipment. Once I had an employee whose laptop had issues to the point of being unusable and it took months to get approval for the replacement.

    TI has a proud, rich history of innovation, but it seems to be fading in recent years as the focus has moved to simpler chips with a lower R&D cost.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your employees aren't ever slowed down by lack of equipment that costs less than their salaries. Think about building long term technologies and the R&D roadmaps to get there.
