I worked at Texas Instruments full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I was given wide latitude to find and fix problems, and received recognition in the Corporate Citizenship Report. Our group was like a family that was spread across the world.
Great benefits and Profit Sharing. Company is dedicated to humanitarian projects in all countries in which it does business. Employees are encouraged to volunteer, and are allowed time during work hours to do so. Civic involvement is encouraged.

Cons

Like all large companies, sometimes the structure impedes progress and adds costs. A (very) few in department-level HR are not always willing to address issues.

Advice to Management

Centralization of some functions has actually created waste.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Texas Instruments full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    An American company with manufacturing in America! Almost unheard of these days. Stable, ethical, and with a CEO that's sane, competent, and fairly compensated. Plus it's good work.

    Cons

    Easy to get stuck in place. Movement within TI is slow, particularly if you're not within a design group.

    Advice to Management

    Skunkworks would be wonderful, or at least funded R&D outside the fabs and design orgs. While I was there, quality was a sort of lower 10% org, which made it all but impossible for non-managers to break out into greater things.


  2. "Great company. Great values."

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

    Pros

    TI is an older company with great values but still has the expertise to be a great competitive technology company. TI is a huge company and has a foot in many areas, so there are good opportunities.

    Cons

    Upper management can be pretty flaky depending on the department. TI being an older company means an older style of management a lot of the time, so you get a lot of top-down directives that don't make much sense.

    Advice to Management

    Wish there was a company wide initiative to become a more engineering driven company.
