    I worked at Texas Instruments full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Resources are well organized. Great access to tools and ability to deliver small products in very high volume

    Cons

    Technically, products are not very leading edge - just quick to deliver at the expense of burning out its staff. Products can be designed by engineers with 1-2 years of experience; so, they use a log of young engineers who are very energetic (at least for a while).

    I worked at Texas Instruments for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Has many creative engineers and did many bleeding edge wireless designs. Had many managers who cared about their people at first

    Cons

    No job stability. Jettisoned any truly challenging design work such as applications processors. Schedules are overly aggressive. Management has the attitude that engineers are 'a dime a dozen' in my opinion in many different businees units. Even though there is work at home flexibility it is nearly impossible for employees to disengage from their work life after hours.

    I worked at Texas Instruments full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - Located in Texas where housing is cheap and no state income taxes makes an average salary go a long way - Good benefits - Family friendly atmosphere, everyone leaves at 5.30!

    Cons

    - No career growth if you are an engineer - Very little scope to switch careers, get slotted in a role and continue forever - No urgency to innovate

    Senior Design Engineer in Dallas, TX
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Texas Instruments

    Pros

    Texas enjoys a lower cost of living and there are no state taxes. Consequently you save more and enjoy a better quality of family life

    Cons

    Classic old-age politics exist. Management and senior management are detached from technology changes. Schedule pressures are rampant with bad decisions being made to get product out on schedule with possible silicon failure. Severe understaffing within projects and only new-grads being hired which stresses the senior staff even more. No value for technical inputs from senior technical folks, rather ill-informed partially knowledgeable managers are being tapped from above for feedback. Useless focus on ridiculous cost-savings within the technical staff when so much is blown up on management travel that achieves nothing of value. No career growth path and most engineers have resigned to the fact of being assembly line workers in a high-tech industry.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits (profit sharing, etc.). Opportunities to work on cutting edge designs.

    Cons

    Horrible work/life balance. There are too many mid-level managers with nothing to do but micromanage tasks which they are unable to comprehend. Negativity never improved a schedule.
