    Pros

    Bon environnement de travail. Endroit calme, confortable où travailler. Beau site.

    Nice work environment. Calm, comfortable place to work. Beautiful site.

    Cons

    Très mauvaise répartition des tâches entre les sites TI sans aucune justification en termes de différentes compétences sur les divers sites. Nous étions en compétition avec nos collègues d'Inde/Dallas alors que nous étions sensés collaborer avec eux.

    En tant que grande multinationale, il est très difficile de changer les TI et bien sûr, les politiques internes empêchent de faire correctement les choses.

    Very poor re-partition of tasks between TI's sites when there was no justification in terms of different skills at the various sites. We were effectively in competition with our colleagues in India/Dallas while we were supposed to be collaborating with them.

    As a big multinational, it's very difficult to effect any change at TI and of course inter-site politics hamper getting things done effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ce conseil est pour la direction OMAP.
    1) Lorsque personne n'achètera vos puces sans logiciel, vous pourrez dire que OUI, vous vendez des logiciels - comprenez cela et admettez que l'IT a une culture très réduite de développement de logiciel. Vous devez a

    This advice is for OMAP management.
    1) When No-one will by your chips without software you can consider that yes, you DO sell software - understand this fact and then recognize that TI has a very poor culture of software development. You need to accept that the excellence of your SW is as important as that of your HW and then stop hiring HW engineers to develop SW. SW engineering is a profession and good SW looks nothing like what your HW engineers produce. This is difficult for people with a HW background to grasp but you need a major cultural change in the way you develop SW at TI - start by hiring outside SW managers (not from semiconductor field!)

    2) Skilled people don't grow on trees - stop treating engineers as interchangeable functional units but recognize that when smart people are experienced in a complex field, they're probably more efficient that 10 juniors working together.

    3) Leadership - you don't have any. When the head of the BU is "amazed" at what clients do with your products then he probably isn't the person with enough vision to anticipate the next step.

    4) Stop paying upper management in stock - they end up running the company more like a casino than a business - they're too worried about short term stock value to implement long term strategy. A lot of the bad decisions of recent years have been to limit short term stock deflation, but they're hurt the capability of the product line to survive long term (loss of employee confidence, loss of key people)
