    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Worked in TI for 7 years. Very well managed company that has consistently delivered great products for the market. Great employee benefits. Also encourage employees to transfer within groups.

    Cons

    Moves slowly and conservative. Averse to taking risks. Beyond a point growth only happens if someone above you in the ladder leaves the company.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good comp, fair benefits, flexible schedule and telecommuting for veterans.

    Cons

    Senior management constantly changing directions, reducing R&D in search of higher margin, terminating entire divisions. Being a hardware company, software developers are not well respected or valued...

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Texas Instruments full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good for Texas. Work can be interesting but generally too compartmentalized. There is technical challenge available but are generally overwhelmed by institutional deficiencies.

    Cons

    First to middle levels of management are pretty hopeless. Too much work going overseas. Too much work being done by short term contractors so no continuity of effort. Engineering process is fractured at best but realistically it is broken.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    TI is an older company with great values but still has the expertise to be a great competitive technology company. TI is a huge company and has a foot in many areas, so there are good opportunities.

    Cons

    Upper management can be pretty flaky depending on the department. TI being an older company means an older style of management a lot of the time, so you get a lot of top-down directives that don't make much sense.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Lots of projects to work on, nice co-workers. If you are lucky with a technically competent supervisor, you will thrive. But planning for the long-term is difficult -- there are organizational changes (restructurizations) that happen more often than 6 months! Meaning that your position is in flux most of the time.

    Cons

    management is non-engineering, often incompetent, but arrogant and brutal to defend their salary at your cost. Projects are not assigned based on technical skill but through internal process of managerial decision making. Since most managers are not technically skilled, projects are assigned and evaluated based on a political and other non-technical reasons. This creates very poor and subjective evaluation process.
