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

Pros

Great benefits
Some good ideas
Diverse product portfolio
Very fair work/life balance for the most part

Cons

Some clearly misguided market attempts
Some managers clearly rose through the ranks through brown-nosing and not competence
Training can be harder to come by than in similar companies
Can be a bit stodgy when it comes to seizing new markets and innovation

Advice to Management

Clear out the chaff. If someone isn't an innovator and merely exists to play politics, they are an anchor dragging down your company.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Exposure to a field sales office to begin the program provides an exciting overview of what a technical sales role entails. The product marketing and business operations rotations that follow are filled with challenging, impactful work that allow TSEs to contribute to the sales and marketing teams while also building a TI network to be leveraged in the future. The quick 1-3 month rotations also mirror the fast-paced environment one can expect when entering into a sales or marketing role.

    Cons

    None! The TSE program is a real investment on TI's part in terms of the time and resources it provides for its technical sales engineers.
