    I worked at Texas Instruments as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Everybody on the team was supper friendly and helpful. Supervisor are very supportive, and making me feel my job actually matters a lot. There seems to be a lot of opportunity to grow within TI, and they let you try different engineering roles within the team.

    Cons

    Dallas might be too hot for me in the summer, though it was okay this year. Cafeteria food is not so pleasant, but many people do bring lunch to work. Also, it is very hard to live in Dallas without a car.

    Pros

    Great for fresh out of school first job
    Extensive training and opportunity for new college grads to get experience and training.
    Perfect place for an engineer who wants to never change.

    Cons

    Excessive use of "golden boys" to fill positions.
    Who you know not what you know mentality.
    Strict adherence to MBA numbers based management.
    Management by intimidation and me first attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the inexperienced who manage purely by packing Excel with numbers, relate to your customers and develop managers who lead.

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

    Pros

    The company has been very successful at reinventing itself to stay relevant in the marketplace so it's a stable company. The company provides great opportunities for college hires. Benefits offered are genuinely very good.

    Cons

    Runs itself like a small business at times rather than a Fortune 500 company. Culture is cliquish and career advancement seems to be based on being a member of the right clique rather than on competency and contribution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much focus on metrics without focusing on the execution of the activity. Just because a box is checked and a metric is "green" doesn't mean all is well.

    Pros

    Company has been relatively stable in the past. Pretty good place to work.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are great, and opportunities are numerous and the products are industry leaders so it makes selling easy.

    Cons

    Be careful as you become an older worker and be sure to stay relevant as there is a tendency to be pushed out, if you're not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not all about process, selling is an art form and it can't be replaced with a 'check box' process.

    Pros

    Benefits are world-class
    Great people to work with
    Flexibility on work schedule

    Cons

    Leadership is often disconnected with the normal daily contributors
    Must do a bit of brown nosing to get in the good graces of management
    Promotions are often handed out to favorites rather than those who deserve it
    Annual pay raises are a joke - 3% is typical
    No recognition for doing outstanding work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Pay your talent
    -Reward employees that go above the normal call of duty
    -Provide a bonus structure to the lower level employees who actually handle some of the most important elements or tasks in the company

    I have been working at Texas Instruments as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly and really implements the open door policy. As an intern, I had a lot of help and support from everyone in the company. As it is a very big company, you can also explore many other options within the company. Easy interview process and you get your decision very fast.

    Cons

    The internships aren't very well paid and that is pretty much the only con that there is.
