    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 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The culture is really chill, tons of super smart people, very friendly. You learn a lot and if you're into electronics, you will become a master of how they're made and how they work. It's neat stuff! And they offer really great benefits like profit sharing, employee share purchase program and 4% 401k matching.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be easy to just get by and not do a lot of work. Since the whole place is cubicles, I felt like it was hard to collaborate and meet others around me.

    Advice to Management

    Take down the cubicles!

    Pros

    profit sharing to all employees, great work life balance, one of the biggest employer in dallas

    Cons

    Slow culture you have to push to get the things going. People are more interested in politic then real work.

    Advice to Management

    get the work done and go out of businesses just because you can not sustain. May be others cannot sustain either and you can gain market share at the end.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time

    Pros

    This is a company with great values and that is reflected in everything we do. I have always felt that someone there cares about me. A 40 hour week truly means a 40 hour week. People will come in on weekends if they have to, but that is offset by being able to leave early other times. This is a huge plus for anyone with a family as there is a lot of flexibility with regard to the work life balance and as long as you are performing and meeting expectations no one is sitting there counting your hours.

    Cons

    Very slow moving. Can be boring at times. Its a big company, and as an "individual contributor" you can sometimes feel like you don't make much of a difference in the grand scheme of things. Rotation program for IT not well defined or explained to participants. Uncertain future

    Advice to Management

    profit sharing is great but don't let people become complacent. Be much more aggressive about advertising and distributing performance based bonuses. Especially with new people

    Pros

    -Good work life balance
    -Great Profit Sharing Bonus
    -Lots of vacation

    Cons

    -Too many sales guys running the company, need more smart engineers in leadership. All of the top tech companies have engineers leading the company, not sales and business guys.

    Advice to Management

    Give more credit to engineers that actually help increase revenue through technical expertise, design, and collateral.
