    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They are a stable company with decent benefits. Generally good profit sharing. Challenging and rewarding work. Global company. You can transfer almost anywhere in the world.

    Cons

    Working for a remote site however, we do not get many of the benefits we would being at headquarters, like the advantage of training classes hosted there, and facilities such as gyms, ect.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Smart people, good projects to work on. Flex-time. Allow you to change teams/projects (depending on availability / location)

    Cons

    Depending on your location and individual situation, it may not be easy to change teams. Some teams do not know how to work with remote resources. Compensation could be better (much better)

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

    Pros

    Good place to grow your technical skills, especially if you are in embedded software domain. To make the best use of the position, one might have to go and do projects over and beyond his routine defect fixes though. There is freedom and opportunities to learn. If you have not worked in any other big silicon company, there is a good chance that you'll love this company. The moment you know what is out there, things might look different.

    Cons

    Lot of mismanagement, micromanagement. Many managers regurgitate what they hear from engineers under them. This makes you needing to do a lot of advertising oneself to climb the ladder, also get to be some manager's personal favorite. That's what helps. Very few cares about how technically capable you are.

    I worked at Texas Instruments

    Pros

    Large company, lots of interesting technology. i worked on Digital Light Processing which is now commonly found in HDTVs that are on sale in retail stores. Plenty of big company benefits including a credit union (TexIns), Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP), 401(k) matching funds, free healthclub membership. Pretty good educational benefits including tuition reimbursement and televised education from local colleges broadcast live into company sites. If you can navigate through the big company system, you can reap a lot of benefits/rewards.

    Cons

    Company is too big. You feel like just a cog in the machine. Regardless of your personal accomplishments, it's difficult to make a large impact on the company bottom line when it is such a large multinational conglomerate. The company makes the vast majority of its money in semiconductor products which end up in other products. There is little consumer name recognition for Texas Instruments aside from the ubiquitous calculators. If you want to make a name for yourself in technology or with friends/family it will be nearly impossible at Texas Instruments.
