I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Large, well managed company from a financial perspective.
Several diverse groups with an opportunity to find one that fits you.

Cons

Too many managers with too narrow of a focus. They look out for their own priorities without regard for corporate priorities.

Advice to Management

Upper management and individual teams work their goals and priorities well, but sometimes teams do not get all of the right message from middle managers.

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

    Pros

    Open door policy which is good for learning. Good compensation compared to others in the area. Lots of opportunity to learn and contribute. Moderate to high work pressure however it is not hard to have a work-life balance here.

    Cons

    Lacks environment to support growth for personnel and partiality and politics is prevalent. Lacks fair growth programs and management participation is low in them. Marred by age old mentality as being an old company and upper level management is resistant to change. Division among various engineering roles lead to friction in team mostly due to lack of respect for other roles. While it seems that being a large company gives more avenues to grow however it is hard to find and materialize a fresh chance. Operating efficiency is on the lower side.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be proactively involved in growing talent of current employees.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Texas Instruments full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The best is the access to some of the industries top engineers in an environment where knowledge sharing is encouraged. You can really learn your craft here. And you might even become tops in your field here, if you learn how to rise in the system.

    Cons

    Too easy to get lost in the crowd. Creating good products and meeting extreme schedules is not enough. Being the "go to guy" for applications and test engineers is not enough either. Frankly, I'm not sure what is enough. Maybe I just didn't create enough drama while getting my job done.

    Advice to Management

    Notice when your engineers have reached expert level and treat them accordingly, or they will leave. Lose the ranking system. It could be that all of the engineers on your team are worthy of high technical status.

    There is definitely an issue with playing favorites. Open up the bonuses and restricted stock options to more of your contributors that are making you lots of money.
