    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
