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

    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.
