    Challenging work environment where you feel like you have a voice. If there are certain aspects of your role you dont like, its encouraged to speak to your superior to see if you can adjust responsibilities to suit.

    Innovation is encouraged. Very ethical company who takes ethics seriously.

    Cons

    No particular cons to mention.

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

    Pros

    Lots of smart, helpful coworkers. Full profit-sharing last few years.

    Cons

    Your job experience and satisfaction will depend heavily on which group/product line you're in. For some, work-life balance is only a rumor. Salaries seem to flatten quickly especially for older workers.

    Advice to Management

    Less emphasis on check boxes and lists to manage things...

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time

    Pros

    Competitive pay, great benefits, profit sharing, high 401k matching, bonuses and restrictive stock sharing available if you are a high achiever. Great place if you are a curious problem solver who loves to work on teams.

    Cons

    Response around the clock is expected for manufacturing positions, high pressure and tight timelines for releases. Budget within manufacturing group is exceedingly tight.

    I worked at Texas Instruments full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable businesses, room for lateral movement, wide variety of engineering positions

    Cons

    Struggles to retain early career hires, Internal reputation as 'Training Institute'

    Advice to Management

    General advice to a company this large is difficult to provide. Based on my experience, engineers who fulfill 'whole product' roles have limited agency, which leads to low job satisfaction.

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

    Pros

    Good salary, flexible hours, good benefits

    Cons

    No development opportunity, managers try to isolate their employees from being involved in any collaboration with other groups making sure that no one within his group grows to upper level. My manager always underestimate me, compete technically with me. He has been so great in destroying my motivation to work

    Advice to Management

    Getting a survey on quarter basis from employees about their managers would be a great place to start
