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

Pros

TI practices diversity in hiring and opportunity in ethnic background and gender. There was diminishment in the quality of work - in fact, having a mixed environment of ladies and gentlemen from all over the world removed some of the "Old Boy network" that I've seen in other companies.

Cons

TI runs on a tight budget. As a semi-conductor leader, they need to invest upwards of a hundred million dollars for a product line, so they aren't afraid to spend money. Teams however will need to justify any expenditures very thoroughly, and those expenditures must be focused to making a profit.

    I worked at Texas Instruments full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's a great company to work for with a lot of opportunities to grow and try different roles (ie: Software, Hardware, Process, Marketing, Management, Finance etc etc).

    Cons

    Salaries maybe somewhat below average since it's headquartered in Dallas, TX where cost of living is quite low compared to other major cities in the US.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't try to make the company an "Analog only" company. There are many opportunities in the area of Embedded Processing that if executed properly can be very successful for TI. For example the OMAP chipset is one of the most superior processors in the market and it's sad see it pulled out of many mobile, tablet and other designs/opportunities.
