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

Pros

Been at TI for almost two years. It's a good company to learn a lot early in your career, and the work will always be interesting because TI is involved in all kinds of cutting edge areas. It's a company you can feel proud to work for, good and ethical business practices. Benefits are not sexy, but solid for a large engineering company. Flexible schedule - TI is not a sweatshop, you can put your family and personal life at a higher priority.

Cons

Raises are terrible for individual contributors, not sure about those that make it to manager level. Will not see most young engineers sticking around long term unless they love the location, the work, flexible schedule, or the opportunity to move to different roles in the company. Lots of restructuring and bowing to the demands of wallstreet, lining the pockets of investors instead of employees. TI appreciates good engineers, but you are expendable. Layoffs come in big waves every couple of years.

Advice to Management

Strategic view is good at 50,000 feet LT level, it's good at execution ground level, but there is some lacking at the 10,000 feet upper/middle management strategy.

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

    Pros

    Work-Life Balance, leading technology company, very knowledgable people, competitive compensation.

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunities but that's location dependent. To grow and be at senior management level it's almost a requirement to move to Dallas eventually - the head office.

    Advice to Management

    Be open with employees. Don't create positions just to save someone's job and impact someone's growth trajectory.

    I worked at Texas Instruments full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They are good to their employees. Great pay. Great co-workers.

    Cons

    Upper Management style is to re-org or layoff. After a major layoff I went through 2 re-orgs a year for two years then was finally let go myself. A year later they had yet another layoff and re-org.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to the board of directors. Get rid of the good old boy network in Texas and layoff the upper management. It doesn't take any talent to consistently layoff and re-org employees while you pat yourself on the back with bonuses and stock options.
