    I worked at Texas Instruments full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company that gives their employees significant benefits, both in work-life balance and compensation (profit sharing, bonuses, pay raises, etc.).

    Cons

    A nine-month training program is a bit much for recent grads. Personally, I was ready to hit the ground running on day one and nine months of training was a bit extensive.

    Advice to Management

    Shorten the training program and focus on teaching the salespeople how to SELL in addition to the ins and outs of the TI business specifically.

    Pros

    If you're not in the fab, then you'll likely have good work hours.

    Cons

    If you support a dying product line, your job will likely be really boring. To move up, you need to work on high visibility products.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your new college grads. They aren't as clueless as you think.

    Good experience a lot of opportunities. So much flexibility on hours and work related to process, programming, etc. Get to learn a lot of the semiconductor process.

    Cons

    Too much reliance on myself. Not too much appreciation for how much I train people. Management pretty selfish and don’t appreciate engineers like they should.

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

    Pros

    Big company, good benefit, good place to work for fresh out from school

    Cons

    In general , company is the only sizable company in Dallas so it has no competition . Thus, company does not appreciate experience people and do not want to retain talent when people older >50 year young.
    Noticeable low pay after been with company after 3 years.
    It's important to know people at the high level in management in order to keep your job.
    Due to job security, people do not want to share their experiences.
    Work/Life balance is the worst in this company. I use to work 12-16 hrs day and week-ends for several years to be able to manage my workload.
