A great learning experience with high quality engineers prepared to offer help whenever needed.

Senior ASIC Design Engineer (Current Employee)
Greenock, Scotland

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

ProsInteresting work if you like DSP. People are very sociable and knowledgeable. Beautiful part of Scotland. Also close to Glasgow airport if you need to travel as a contractor. Very flexible regarding working from home.

ConsEngineers were frustrated by lack of projection direction from USA and the inability of marketing to nail down features.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good colleagues - but some lack of commitment from management.

Technical Sales (Current Employee)
Northampton, England

I have been working at Texas Instruments

ProsI have some great colleagues who are always willing to help. There is also a good spirit inside the company with good and regular feedback mechanisms. Benefits packages are good and there has been (until now) excellent training avalable for personal and professional development.

ConsIt's a very large company, so there is a feeling on anonimity. This is even worse if you are in a satellite company away from the HQ - or even outside the US. We do struggle to compete against the big players in some markets and I feel a lack of commitment sometimes to be competitive.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet a bit more consistent in your buniess approach. If we want to get into a buiness / opportunity area we need to stick at it and resource it properly. I have see many instances where we hae changed direction 90% of the way towards getting the biz. This destroys customer confidence. Lets drop the soundbites and get some real actions going.

Good Old Fashioned Corporate America

Anonymous (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX (US)

I have been working at Texas Instruments for more than a year

ProsThere is opportunity for travel and you can easily see how your work impacts the bottom line. It is a sales/revenue focused company.

ConsIt is a sales/revenue focused company through and through. Almost all of upper management is from sales and they won't spare much in the way of "nice to haves" for employees. This is no Google; everything centers around increasing profit/revenue. Everything.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't stress so much about increasing the company's profits and instead focus on making employees happy. You will reduce turnover and increase profits in the long run.

Great people to work for

Good first internship

Analog Design Engineer Intern (Former Employee)
Santa Clara, CA (US)

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

ProsTI is a great place for a first internship in the semiconductor space. Lots of resources, different projects going on, and really nice people!

ConsAssigned project was pretty narrow in scope, and it was a little difficult to look for other opportunities. Pay was so-so compared to other bay area opportunities.
