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

Pros

Ethical company, good recognition system

Cons

"Real" decision making limited to VP level. Site/branch level act as if they are making decision and section level manages have given up even acting to be decision makers.

Advice to Management

Decentralize. Trust section and branch level more to make sound $ judgement. Every item should not need VP approval.

    Pros

    Lots of projects to work on, nice co-workers. If you are lucky with a technically competent supervisor, you will thrive. But planning for the long-term is difficult -- there are organizational changes (restructurizations) that happen more often than 6 months! Meaning that your position is in flux most of the time.

    Cons

    management is non-engineering, often incompetent, but arrogant and brutal to defend their salary at your cost. Projects are not assigned based on technical skill but through internal process of managerial decision making. Since most managers are not technically skilled, projects are assigned and evaluated based on a political and other non-technical reasons. This creates very poor and subjective evaluation process.

    Advice to Management

    engineering company can not succeed without technically competent management, at this point too many MBA's too few engineering degree managers even fewer company-grown ones.
