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

    Pros

    The only positive was the salary.

    Cons

    Lots of attitude when asking for help from fellow employees. The culture wasn't very inclusive (extremely old fashioned). Managers with little to no people skills.

    Advice to Management

    Moving bad managers from one team to another doesn't solve the problem of a bad manager. Offer development courses to poor management.

    Pros

    Top Class Manufacturing environment. Excellent place to work in a support and manufacturing role

    Cons

    Sound Engineering decisions sometimes trumped by HR and outside forces. Middle management forced to make all things fit one model. But these are the things that make this place an amazing manufacturing machine even if it is at the expense of innovation on a product level ........ in some cases to be fair.

    Advice to Management

    growing an amazing manufacturing environment internally while getting product innovation from acquisitions seems to be working well. Sometimes grown internally but
    that may be out of their control. Just be good to the workers.

    Pros

    New faculties and extensive lab space. The company also really cares about their employees.

    Cons

    Dallas can be quite hot in the summer and the traffic in the DFW area is only getting worse.

    Pros

    Reasonable management, good company.

    Cons

    Much like any big companies, when it comes to ladder, it could be very political.

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

    Pros

    I worked there for one year. I liked the friendly environment, diverse work force. The location I worked at was in Dallas. I had very good experience with Texas Instrument.

    Cons

    The organization is matrix management. Sometime it take a while to figure out who is in charge and who to ask to get resources.

    Advice to Management

    The company need to take a little more proactive approach to management and need to improve efficiency in decision making.

    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

    Pros

    - Management gives you a lot of guidance, freedom, and trust. The Dallas campus is great and the people are really nice. Pay is relatively nice for an intern. Learn a lot about the semi-conductor industry.

    Cons

    - A lot of individual work. Not as much team work as expected. Not as great as developing new employees as expected either.
