    I worked at Texas Instruments (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management seems to be aware of the issues employees might have and does a good job to ensure issues are considered. The people I met there have been working there for many years, and therefore the teams were very stable. Clearly that is a reflection on the style and goal of management.

    Cons

    As with lots of companies, target dates and the time it takes to build a high quality integrated product do not always work well together.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, it keeps attrition to a minimum and that means. Promote better communication between the teams. Since many have been there for a long time, it is sometimes difficult for the new people to find information because everyone knows it and it is obvious.

    "A big company with a small company feel"

    Pros

    - Great people work at the Toronto office. They're very friendly and knowledgeable.
    - Because they work on Code Composer Studio there (Eclipse based C/C++ IDE for their embedded devices), there are opportunities to work on low level and high level software.
    - Stability of a large company, but the feeling of a smaller company since the Toronto office is smaller.
    - The gratis snacks and drinks (water, pop, etc) are convenient.

    Cons

    If you don't like working on IDEs, then this place may not be for you. That is the speciality of this office.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! This was one of my favourite workplaces.

    Pros

    Nothing to say other than maybe office location

    Cons

    No room to move up. Lots of politics.

    Advice to Management

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

    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 Management

    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 Management

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