    Good Old Fashioned Corporate America

    Anonymous (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    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

    Challenging but rewarding opportunity.

    Manufacturing Supervisor (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsTI is a financially stable corporation. The company is able to keep reinventing itself making it very competitive firm in the semiconductors' industry.

    ConsThere should be improvements in the Work/Life balance. There is a lot of pressure on the Manufacturing team in the fabs. The personnel in the Wafer Fabs are very productive. I believe we ask a lot more out of the few employees than what was asked in the past.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good first internship

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

    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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
