    Pros

    Good pay, Abundant resources, Room to grow, Talented people

    Cons

    Forgot most of it, but I did not like the attitude of middle management. Their only desire is going up another level after all. This comes from the culture that made Ti to grow. Seniors are not appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Life is short. Go up faster before the door closes.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Technically challenging.
    Good yearly bonus.
    Good pay.

    Cons

    Poor pay raise system. Only 2% pay raise per year.
    Pay raise not tied to performance. Everybody gets about the same raise.
    TI doesn't like spending money on employees. For anything.
    High increase in work load but no hiring to reflect higher work load.
    Poor health benefits, unless you like high deductible plans.

    Advice to Management

    Give raises appropriate to a person's performance. A 0.5% higher pay raise for a top performer compared to a bottom performer is insulting.
    Taking away decent health insurance and only offering high deductible plans will just turn experienced people away from working here. Don't be afraid to spend money on your employees.
    Start hiring people in a decent amount of time to prepare for higher starts instead of waiting for the whole thing to topple before acting.

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

    Pros

    Work life balance, benefits, nice people. Stable company, always know what to expect including the layoffs

    Cons

    Not bleeding edge, slow moving at times, periodic layoffs like clockwork, declining benefits over time

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a good job on product execution; trust your engineers more.

    Pros

    Profit Sharing. Used to be a great company to work in, specially in fab engineering role.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is getting worse every year. Management is very conservative on spending money on right things.
    Salary increment is less.

    Advice to Management

    Don't promote people with bad attitude in critical positions like Fab section/branch manager. The Fab engineering job is always stressful and challenging, but a bad manager can ruin team's performance. Need to promote people in management who can motivate the team, not someone who puts his anger to the team at 7am in the morning and demotivate his team whole day. From my experience, DFAB is used to be a great place to work in, but not anymore.

    Pros

    Top Class Manufacturing environment. Excellent place to work in a support and manufacturing role

    Cons

    Sound Engineering decisions sometimes trumped by HR and outside forces. Middle management forced to make all things fit one model. But these are the things that make this place an amazing manufacturing machine even if it is at the expense of innovation on a product level ........ in some cases to be fair.

    Advice to Management

    growing an amazing manufacturing environment internally while getting product innovation from acquisitions seems to be working well. Sometimes grown internally but
    that may be out of their control. Just be good to the workers.

    Pros

    upper management is good. They direct the company into businesses it will succeed.

    Cons

    mid management is a tight network of old timers. Not much for newer employees

    Advice to Management

    be more considered for the employees. Some decisions are very abrupt and not well thought.
