    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good healthcare and benefits. Great portfolio. All the resources you could want.

    Cons

    Slow to market due to fear of failure and size of company. Always playing catch-up. Little innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Management is mostly sales or marketing. So, be sure to retain and listen to your top technical talent. Ease off the gas on the 'growth or bust' and 'personal responsibility' attitudes. Stop with the P&L centers...it only causes friction and internal competition with is counter productive. Try creating a culture of innovation, learning, and teamwork.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Texas Instruments as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity to take on new projects. Helpful, friendly, and motivated coworkers. Top-notch facilities and equipment, with access to many software tools. Contractors are afforded solid hours at competitive rates.

    Cons

    Agile development process often caused projects to overlap, resulting in work piling up. Deadlines were very strict, however red-tape occasionally prevented advancement. Internal firewalls sometimes caused issues with SVN, FTP, or other file-sharing methods (very strict firewall).

    Advice to Management

    In my opinion, Agile needs to be scrapped for developers. I think Scrum would work better in some of the smaller teams, and would encourage better coordination of efforts.
