    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.

    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.

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Broad portfolio, providing some level of access to nearly any customer base in the world. High intensity environment, with a strong engineering community to support you.

    Cons

    Currently developing new sales tools and metrics, which has created some gap in customer focus and inconsistency as the organization evolves the tools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The TI portfolio and engineering teams are unrivaled in the semiconductor industry. Focus on exploiting these strengths to build a customer facing, value-add sales force, vs driving purely from numbers.

    Pros

    A great place to grow. You are given significant responsibility as an intern during your first week. Your projects are relevant and important to the success of the company. TI's "open door" policy makes it very easy to find help and to expand your personal network. In my three months here, I met the CEO, EVP, and several SVP's, all of whom were very friendly and very supportive of the intern program.

    Cons

    There is a large learning curve coming in. However, there is plenty of available help to make your on-boarding process smooth. As with any worldwide company, there are many evening conference calls.
