Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Depending on your job type you can do your work well and rewarded.

Cons

If you are in a management or strategic position, the politics are counter productive.
The buzz word accountability has become to mean that "stuff" rolls down hill.
Very few people at the GM level or above will openly take responsibility.

Advice to Management

Move back to advancing to people with proven track records.
Make sure that new people or business managers have demonstrated the required skills in earlier roles.

    Pros

    Knowledgeable team, get to work on a huge variety of projects and technologies, you can have the opportunity to architect complete hardware solutions.

    Cons

    You are a part of the sales organization. Great for pay, but you deal with sales team a lot... Hours can be very long (80+ hrs/week for 4-6 month stretches)

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

    Pros

    Have had opportunities to work in many different groups, with great opportunities to expand my base of knowledge in areas like Engineering, Marketing, Operations, and Finance

    Cons

    Your supervisor is typically not actively trying to promote you as much as themselves. You definitely have to have a strong network in order to continue to move into more challenging and exciting roles.
