    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Job security is high. Benefits for those that have been here for some time are great. Profit sharing is attractive.
    Great company to work for if you are fine with limited growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than industry standards. If you are a newer employee you are now subject to the lower benefit trends that other companies are using. Talent is wasted or not fully utilized. The environment is the same as it was in the 70's. Creative energies are not promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote those with experience and not just by academic credentials. Very limited resources used to grow employees.

    Pros

    Work-Life Balance, leading technology company, very knowledgable people, competitive compensation.

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunities but that's location dependent. To grow and be at senior management level it's almost a requirement to move to Dallas eventually - the head office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open with employees. Don't create positions just to save someone's job and impact someone's growth trajectory.

    Big Company, Experienced people, work life balance is accommodated

    Big place, too much marketing and less engineering, contributions get lost in the management layers

    I worked at Texas Instruments as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    There are several co-workers ready and willing to help. These people are highly skilled at their own field and have a deep experience working there.

    Cons

    The environment is very quiet, and, most times, interactions are kept to a minimum. The location seems to express a neutral ground, lacking any indication for sales growth and/or success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to generate a greater excitement in the building to increase the drive of the site.

    Pros

    Excellent people and work environment.

    Cons

    Semiconductor industry as a whole is more cyclical than most fields. So lay offs are common. But TI goes out of their way to keep their people.
