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

Pros

knowledgeable staff, well kept facilities, strong customer focus, solid teams, vast network of people

Cons

militant HR, horrible cafeteria food, over-zealous security, upper management focus on short-term gain as opposed to harnessing local talent.

Advice to Management

It's understandable that a public company keep it's shareholders happy. At the same time, sending an axeman into divisions to layoff key talent for short-term gain and send the work overseas where the product will have nowhere near the same yield can only be damaging to the future of the company. On the short-term, money will be saved. In the long term, the company suffers when time is lost fixing mistakes or silicon comes back with problems.

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

    Pros

    Good people
    Benefits are pretty good for a large company
    Allow you to work from home anytime
    Profit sharing.

    Cons

    They are seriously cheap.
    Office decor is terribly outdated.
    Not many in office freebies like lunch, office supplies, company logo'ed stuff, etc.
    Management will lay you off same day with no notice and out of the blue.

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort to keep talented people - you're allowing a brain drain. Also, the no notice lay offs are giving the company a horrible reputation in the valley. You wanted a presence in the valley to take advantage of the talent but the way you are treating the employees is making you lose the same talent and keep others away. No talent = no IP = no revenue. Get it?
