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

    Pros

    Overall a good place. light work load. No weekend work necessary. Environment is very much dependent on the job function and group.

    Cons

    Lack of innovation and hiring of very green engineers makes look elementary in approach and execution.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more experienced engineers so that you don't have to train the green ones off of college and see them leave in 1-2 years after acquiring some useful experience to go work elsewhere!

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

    Pros

    Own manufacturing sites, processes and packaging, experienced teams, plenty internal promotion options, diverse teams and locations. Many different products and markets.

    Cons

    Constantly changing org structure, acquisitions and lay offs are frequent. Too much focus on methodology and processes at the expense of experienced engineers.

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

    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 (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Clean.After 8 hours, you get overtime pay.

    Cons

    buddy system is not good.If you are a good worker; you have to keep your lazy buddies section good to.lazy workers knows how to get away. Management dont knows what is best, they get lost buy the rules. You dont have a value as employee in Texas. You recommend renovation to your bosses but they dont listen but after 2-3 years, they do your idea as their idea. Technology company but they dont use it for their self.

    Advice to Management

    You have to know to listen and learn from the workers. They do the jobs and your job is to make easy and faster and better. But you always listen mean ideas and sometimes you overload the workers then you get low quality and scraps.

    I worked at Texas Instruments as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people that you work with are great and are always willing to help. The work can be challenging at times but it's very rewarding at the end of the day.

    Cons

    Depending on what project(s) you deal with, the work can be very technical at times and you may need to have experience with programming language.

    Advice to Management

    Don't expect interns to know everything when they start working.
