I worked at Texas Instruments full-time

Pros

Exciting projects; cutting edge silicon process technology; commitment to innovation and design quality; driven by an ethical ethos; high degrees of upward mobility for talented young employees; "family" feel as an employee of the company.

Cons

There seems to be a trend of consolidating remote design centers and pushing people towards working in Dallas, TX - it is hard to gain traction on the career ladder away from HQ. Some business units are inclined to leverage stale designs in the name of getting to market rather than pushing the envelope.

Advice to Management

Go after the technology revolution, not the incremental change.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, they don't forget about the little guy, have new grad global rotation programs, most everyone is friendly, always something new to learn/do.

    Cons

    No consistent managerial style, cubical everywhere (even most offices look like cubes), not many cons for TI

    Pros

    People are very nice and willing to teach you.
    Very flexible environment.
    Good incentives and reasonable perks.
    Excellent work-life balance.

    Cons

    Lack of long term vision.
    Lack of engineers at top management.
    Image of a gigantic conservative company.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to take on riskier ventures.
    Do not let go of talented employees. Too many reorgs and firing will not make for a good environment for innovation.
    If there is competition in a market instead of quickly shutting down the business, try to compete and keep hold of the market.
    Think of selling software, services and systems level solution. Do not pigeon hole yourself into a single type of business model and only selling chips. Profit margins could be higher if software etc.. were to be charged as well and will also make software engineers feel more valuable to the company.
