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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, decent pay. Room to move around and grow if you wish. They do tend to promote from within when openings are available.

    Cons

    Layoff prone, as are all tech companies these days. A bit top heavy. Lots of managers and engineers, not really enough technicians and operators so those on the bottom have to hurry to keep up, which makes them prone to mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Get a little less top heavy.

    Nothing

    Pros

    Huge company - great job security.

    Good CEO and direction.

    Very ethical

    Great work-life balance

    Cons

    Lots of bureaucracy. Kind of bloated.

    Working at TI requires a lot of TI-related knowledge. Feels like one needs just as much technical knowledge of circuits as experience using TI tools.

    Don't really get the feeling that you're working on the next great thing. Just making slightly better parts to keep up with the market.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on the meta-work. Give us more time to do the work instead of tracking our work.

    I worked at Texas Instruments full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company respects employees, and offers great benefits, including profit sharing and reduced cost stock purchase plans. Working from home is allowed, and encouraged, within reason. Getting the job done is the focus.

    You can rise as far as you are qualified to rise, and experience is valued.

    Cons

    Sometimes layoffs happen that might have been avoided...

    Advice to Management

    Assess senior leadership in divisions, and determine early on when the focus is upon "I know this market" rather than upon "we can grow in these markets, and should reduce efforts in that one".
