    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time for 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.

    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 for 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.

    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

    I have been working at Texas Instruments as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly and really implements the open door policy. As an intern, I had a lot of help and support from everyone in the company. As it is a very big company, you can also explore many other options within the company. Easy interview process and you get your decision very fast.

    Cons

    The internships aren't very well paid and that is pretty much the only con that there is.

    I worked at Texas Instruments as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Everybody on the team was supper friendly and helpful. Supervisor are very supportive, and making me feel my job actually matters a lot. There seems to be a lot of opportunity to grow within TI, and they let you try different engineering roles within the team.

    Cons

    Dallas might be too hot for me in the summer, though it was okay this year. Cafeteria food is not so pleasant, but many people do bring lunch to work. Also, it is very hard to live in Dallas without a car.
