Current Employee - Software Engineer in Germantown, MD
Current Employee - Software Engineer in Germantown, MD

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

Pros

Great place to do embedded software, deep access to SoC internals to enable tight sw/hw integration and Multi-core sw development.

Cons

Software is an enabler for hardware, constraining the level of sw abstraction

Advice to Management

1:1 ratio sw/hw developers

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Can't think of any other than it's a paycheck.

    Cons

    Training is for a select few people that the upper crust likes. They think that looking over shoulders will suffice. They stress "ownership" of your goals but if they won't give you anything to own them with, what is the use?? " Read one of the other guys books or something".

    Advice to Management

    Instead of sticking to your little huddle of managers and micromanagers, listen to your workers. Without knowing what they are experiencing you are totally in the dark. Respect what the workers tell you and act on it.


  2. "Fulfilling"

    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.
