    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance and job is fairly easy

    Cons

    No compensation growth while in the rotation program and no room or advancing in promotion

    Also being in the rotation program means that you don’t control the positions you are placed so you could be placed in a position that you have no interest in

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to have a program or retain talent allow for them to progress in their careers and not suppress them

    Pros

    Benefits, paid time off, education advancement

    Company refuses to spend money, management likes to "do more with less" until there's too much to take on, lives and operates on bare minimum.

    Pros

    Pay is decent. They don’t try to control every aspect of your work life. Yearly bonus, up to 20% of your salary.

    Cons

    First, and most important, they’ve stopped caring about their employees. If you’re a new hire, your only health insurance option is a high deductible plan. If you started before they cut out real and decent insurance, you are grandfathered in to the old insurance plans. But they are starting to cut out those insurance plans slowly but surely. If you’ve never had a high deductible plan, they are absolutely terrible if you are not in perfect health. A billion dollar company setting record earnings yearly along with major corporate tax cuts recently and they can’t afford decent insurance for their employees?
    My other issue is that the corporate culture panders to the lowest common denominator for their employees. There are no rewards for being an excellent employee and going above and beyond. You are given the same raises and bonuses as those doing just barely enough to not get fired. There are no consequences for those workers and they continue to do a terrible job and barely work. This brings all those with a modicum of a work ethic down to their level. It doesn’t take a genius to realize this brings the entire company as whole down.

    Advice to Management

    If you are trying to get your employees to unionize in order to actually get decent pay raises and benefits, then you are on the right path.

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

    Pros

    Money, health benefits, vacation, holidays.

    Cons

    TI annually gets rid of whites and transfers their jobs to India. TI only cares about making their numbers for diversity, which is at the expense of white males.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate good old boy clubs.

    Pros

    Entry level professionals go through a rotation program to get exposed to different aspects of their job. Compensation is also good for entry level employees. Learning and development opportunities are endless.

    Cons

    Rotation program can be unpredictable (location and product supported).
