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

    Good colleagues - but some lack of commitment from management.

    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.

    Pros

    A great place to grow. You are given significant responsibility as an intern during your first week. Your projects are relevant and important to the success of the company. TI's "open door" policy makes it very easy to find help and to expand your personal network. In my three months here, I met the CEO, EVP, and several SVP's, all of whom were very friendly and very supportive of the intern program.

    Cons

    There is a large learning curve coming in. However, there is plenty of available help to make your on-boarding process smooth. As with any worldwide company, there are many evening conference calls.

    Pros

    Grow a large network, always get challenging work, company size means one can experience many different roles at one company. Opportunities for career growth not only managerially but also technically

    Cons

    Sometimes the politics of things can get in the way of getting the job done. Work life balance is ok, but is largely dependent on the person in question to set his or her own balance.

    Pros

    TI has a great internship program that really provides you with marketable skills in the semiconductor business. I was given a lot of responsibility by designing something new that will go into future parts and improving the process of design verification. There are a lot of opportunities to improve your technical skills and see how things are done in the real world. The benefits are good, and the company provides a small amount for relocation expenses. There is also a lot of diversity and a lot of emphasis placed on innovation.

    Cons

    Job security. The company has made a goal to make analog and embedded a large part of their business, so job security is an issue if you aren't working in one of those two areas.
