    I worked at Texas Instruments full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, but in the end that wasn't enough to keep me at TI.

    Cons

    Poorly managed, little to no instruction as to what I should be doing. The pay might be good, but, if you are looking for a long enjoyable career, don't start at TI.

    Advice to Management

    Plan for incoming graduates more carefully.

  3. "Good company."

    Lot of restructuring and job losses.

    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 Management

    Reduce bureaucracy.

    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 Management

    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.
