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

    Pros

    Good management and a great set of people to work with. Flexible working hours as long as work is completed on time with a high quality.

    Cons

    Reduced expenditure on R&D and more focus on GPM to improve stock market performance. Very quick to shut down R&D groups if progress is not as fast as expected.

    Advice to Management

    Try to find a better balance between maximizing GPM and R&D reductions.

    Pros

    Cool work environment, only work 3/4 days a week

    Cons

    Nobody who works for TI gets reprimanded for anything, 3 hours breaks, showing up an hour late, sleeping on the job... but if you work there as a temp, you will get punished for not doing the work of your sleeping coworker.

    Pros

    Compensation and work/life balance are very good. Business has improved under current leadership and plans forward look very promising.

    Pros

    I really like everyone that I have been able to work with. Team culture.

    Cons

    Manufacturing output driven culture can lead to pressure to work on weekends/off hours. Downsizing the R and D is concerning. Difficult to change roles, HR has an agenda to push employees into areas/groups with high turn over.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your future

    Pros

    Overall this is a great company with lots of projects going on and it is fairly easy t move laterally, to shift departments and jobs. More so than at most other companies I have worked for.

    Cons

    There is a core leadership team mentality at TI. The leaders can not be questioned, contradicted, told they are wrong, or shown "another way" to do things. Basically you have to shift departments until you can find management you can live with.

    Advice to Management

    Break the 'mafia' mentality of the most senior leadership team.
