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

    Pros

    Generally friendly colleagues; easy going yet hard working environment; very good products.

    Cons

    No significant opportunities for advancement or lateral moves, unless at the larger US sites; processes rather ad hoc; some office politics to deal with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't keep doing things the same way yet expect different results: invest in improving processes and in infrastructure.

    Nothing to say other than maybe office location

    Cons

    No room to move up. Lots of politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    one-on-one with your staff wouldn't hurt

    Pros

    Different challenges to work on. Get to know hardware while implementing software analysis tools.

    Cons

    Working with others at remote sites can be challenging at some times, but interesting and a good challenge at others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make technical ladder performance-based, rather than peer-election based. It's implemented too much like a "you're in-the-club" system.

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

    Pros

    Excellent training program for student hires, promotional opportunities in early years, competitive pay, opportunities for meaty jobs very quickly

    Cons

    No real value placed on experience, promotions based on potential as opposed to actual results

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is great to have young energetic people infused into the orgnaisation, but it should be tempered with actual accomplishments. This will help with management credibility with any senior individual contributors.

    Diversity of product lines, ethics, compensation

    Technical comptency of engineers and middle managment. Ability to execute. Systems skills and selling needs significant improvment

    Need to promote the technical knowledge and competency of engineers and product line managers in systems related issues and software skills. Constant change in the organization is affecting employee motivation

    Pros

    Hard-working culture, Given as much responsibility as you can handle, opportunities for growth

    Cons

    Work-life balance, some aspects of culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to new research regarding compensation, results oriented work environments, and proactive vs. reactive management styles. The company is doing a lot of things right - but there's always room for improvement when it comes to managing people. Focus on doing what we do best, and treat our people like the amazing hard workers they are and we will continue to outgrow the market. Focus on fear-based management and other styles from 20 years ago and we'll go under in no-time flat.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments

    Pros

    Very good place to learn and understand the flow of chip designing, packaging, testing. Fairly good design tools available. Fairly good work-life balance and good recognition from midlevel managers. Friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    I did not find too many cons. Reorganizations due to merging business units disturbs the calm and comfort, but this is likely to happen at other places as well.
    Abysmal cafeterias.
    Leadership is fair.
