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

    Pros

    It's a large company with a lot of room for growth and opportunities for learning.

    Cons

    Management seems to be out-sourcing aggressively and devaluing the engineer, test, layout, and app support resources they do have.

    Great work environment with reasonable expectations and room for growth.

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

    Pros

    There are no limits on my position. I can grow in my position and continue to help grow our business as an engineering technician along side with managers, engineers, and other fellow TIers.

    The work life balance issue is stable, and it has been for years. Flexible time and hours from both me and my manager are available. Benefits and profit sharing also help with my total compensation.

    Cons

    The idea that the grass is always greener doesn't credit TI. We know there are other opportunities outside but look at the whole compensation and stability. About the only con, I can think of, is that there is a saying in TI: the only constant in TI is that there is always change. One day you may be supporting a new and upcoming business, and the next you are moved or assigned to support a legacy business.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to lead your team well.
    Listen to advice and weigh the options and opportunities available.
    Taking risks is part of leadership.
