Negative Outlook
Approves of CEO

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Office decor is terribly outdated.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?

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Few good people left in engineering

    Cons

    TI has become a Walmart with no true R&D left and catalog business with most of the products made in Asia.
    Management is full of sales people with little understanding of technology trends all the way up to the executive level..
    Unfortunately if you look at history, there are very few high tech companies who have survived with non-tech CEO.

    Advice to Management

    Stockholders should bring fresh blood at the top who are tech savvy and get rid of the sales and marketing people, just as an example look at how well Qualcomm has done due to their management vs TI.
