No opinion of CEO

I worked at Texas Instruments full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Some great people and co-workers.

Cons

Every product group is different. Mine had constant reorganizations and changes, with a manager change on average every 18 months. I saw a great product manager get pushed aside for someone who kissed the right tush and had a good smile.

Advice to Management

The Forest Lane building is horrible. They marginally renovated the common areas, but the cubes are still horribly ugly and outdated. Spend the $$$ to create offices or private work areas for EVERYONE. Your employees will get more done and love you for it.

    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.
