    I have been working at Texas Instruments as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Interesting 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.

    Cons

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

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, huge database of information (both technical and non-technical). There are some great people, only if one can find them as it's a huge organization. Decent work-life balance in general.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy slows down engineers to work efficiently. A lot of effort is spent in micro-managing things that better be reduced to go back to its glory days!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce bureaucracy.

    Good colleagues - but some lack of commitment from management.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    It'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 ManagementAdvice

    Get 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.

    1. Work Culture is very relaxed

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Overall great place to work. If you are doing an excellent job and build up some credit there are many different opportunities inside the company to move to and try out. Management more often than not tries to support your career goals or helps accommodating specific personal situations.

    Cons

    Org changes sometimes happen more often than I wish. Also history has shown that unexpected and drastic layoffs can happen anytime due to changes in corporate direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the folks at the end of the reporting chain a little more advance warning so that larger changes don't catch people too off-guard. Also sometimes it's worth communicating some of the little details and reasons as well - you think why should people care but they do.
