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

    Pros

    1) Decent pay if you are based in Dallas or Tucson
    2) Good work/life balance

    Cons

    1) If you are based in Santa Clara, you get paid much much less than all other companies near you.
    2) No innovation. still stuck in 130nm / 90nm technologies in 2017 while the digital companies are pushing beyond 7nm - 5nm.
    3) Upper management is mostly from sales / marketing. Hard to come by technically strong leaders.
    4) Mostly hire from 2-3 tier schools that nobody knows about.
    - NVIDIA, Apple, Qualcomm, Google, Facebook are filled with Stanford/ Berkeley grads. I never ran into top school graduates at this company.
    Likewise, upper management filled with morons from nobody schools - rank 100 or below.
    5) You don't get to work on cool technologies. you will work with old lifers who's lived in Dallas since the 70's and 60's. Doesn't feel young and innovative.
    6) All the upper management cares about is cost reduction and sales. No long-term visions for innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Be more innovative. Hire from top schools. Stop filling your ranks with clueless sales/marketing morons from nobody schools that other top companies will never even consider.
