    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time

    Pros

    Lots of smart and hard working people, lots of IP resources and training opportunities. Relatively decent pay and training environment for fresh graduates.

    Cons

    The office politics and good ole boy networks are everywhere. No upward career path at all if you plan to stay in the company long term. Upper management have no vision longer than a year.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    In the best of times, it can be exciting and fun. If you are an engineer you can be challenged if you want with many different groups to be a part of. Pay is typical but less than what you may get in Silicon Valley. If you like to travel, you can often do that too! Your experience will vary with each group... Some are better than others. Benefits are very very good and more than fair. The company has been very good to me. I hesitantly would recommend it....But

    Cons

    Once you hit 50 years old, watch out. TI is well known for kicking older workers to the curb. How they are able to do this systematically is beyond me...well maybe not. They simply pay off each individual with take it or leave it "packages" where you promise not to tell. Secondly, they use the H1B visa workers like crack. This is mostly to keep pay down I suppose. These are harsh comments but it's well known in the industry.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - Sychophant management - Managers try to exploit workers down the line

    Cons

    - More you try to do a good job- more you be rewarded with grunt work and 'overtime work' except there is no overtime - Other companies Samsung, HITACHI and every other microchip maker leave them in the dust. - Adding a tiny new feature to an existing chip- or 1 mw less power doesn't usher in innovation- wake up and smell the fertilizer.

    I worked at Texas Instruments full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Large established infrastructure worldwide, good benefits in the US.

    Cons

    Just like leaders of many other publicly traded companies TI managers are mostly focused on impressing investors. This culture spreads through all levels of the company. It does not matter what you do, it only matters what your boss think you do. The company has very few innovative products. Product designed decades ago generate most of the revenue.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This is a good place to work if you are just starting out. It offers you an opportunity to get to know the "ins and outs" of the semiconductor field.

    Cons

    Mental stimulation and growth are quite deficient at times. You really get the vibe that you are a "cog in the wheel" while working here.

    Pros

    HR recognizes the need for employees to like their job both for retention and effort reasons. Product Development and Testing are respected and done well

    Cons

    R&D is somewhat starved. Leadership doesn't seem to have the desire to fund anything that won't pay off for > 2 years.
