    I worked at Texas Instruments (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    TI is a terrific company to work for as an individual contributor probably more than as a manager like most larger companies. If you are a hard charging individual with ambition you can find yourself on a fast track provided that you make sure you are on programs that are going somewhere commercially. As you go up the technical ladder, you need to produce something of significance.

    Cons

    You probably will not get rich but you will be comfortable.

    Advice to Management

    As you go up the management ladder you must understand people for whom you are responsible, laterally and above you - if that is politics to you, so be it. By the time you are dealing with Boards of Directors, it is definitely politics.

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

    Pros

    Texas Instruments has a wealth of cutting edge engineering. Management is old school, but they are neither afraid to explore new opportunities with serious money - nor are they shy about cutting loses when opportunity ends.

    The engineering team I worked with at TI was the MOST diverse of my entire career - ethnically, gender, international, poly-lingual. Eye opening and exciting!

    Cons

    Compensation is good, but not outstanding.

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

    Pros

    Great place to start a career in the semiconductor industry after college since you will get a variety of experiences and learning opportunities within the first couple of years.

    TI is one of the better semiconductor companies in the industry right now and with all of the merger's and acquisitions that can be a good thing.

    Cons

    TI is very much a Texas based company, so working for TI in Dallas, TX (HQ) is awesome, however if you're like me working in one of the many regional sales offices, in this case Silicon Valley, CA, then it can be troublesome with regards to compensation. The SF Bay tech culture is unique and most valley companies here offer a certain level of pay and amenities that TI doesn't. The pay when you get sent here from Texas is adjusted but not nearly enough, your quality of life will suffer.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to operate in Silicon Valley adopt to the local business culture instead of continuing to run in Texas mode.

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

    Pros

    At TI, supervisors and mentors take a lot of effort to ensure that they build the next level of technical leaders and thinkers.TI has one of the best work ethics I have seen in my discussion with my peers like providing flexible work hours and schedules based on someone's personal constraints.

    Cons

    Information flow is very slow during project management.
