    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.

    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.

    Current Employee - Technical Sales in Northampton, England

    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.

    Pros

    Hard-working culture, Given as much responsibility as you can handle, opportunities for growth

    Cons

    Work-life balance, some aspects of culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to new research regarding compensation, results oriented work environments, and proactive vs. reactive management styles. The company is doing a lot of things right - but there's always room for improvement when it comes to managing people. Focus on doing what we do best, and treat our people like the amazing hard workers they are and we will continue to outgrow the market. Focus on fear-based management and other styles from 20 years ago and we'll go under in no-time flat.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments

    Pros

    Very good place to learn and understand the flow of chip designing, packaging, testing. Fairly good design tools available. Fairly good work-life balance and good recognition from midlevel managers. Friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    I did not find too many cons. Reorganizations due to merging business units disturbs the calm and comfort, but this is likely to happen at other places as well.
    Abysmal cafeterias.
    Leadership is fair.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Brilliant minds, fast paced work environment (of course, depends on your position and team), lots to learn. Good compensation.

    Cons

    Depending on your team, you may or may not get visibility with upper management for your contributions/success. I have been lucky to have good, ambitious supervisors but know of others who are not so lucky.
    Travel to customer sites is usually restricted to upper echelons of management. Frequent restructuring while understandable financially, can tend to demotivate employees if the reasons are not clearly and crisply specified.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more frequently with your employees.
