    Pros

    The company is very much employee friendly. The workplace culture i think would be among the best in Semiconductor companies in India. You need not do same kind of work again and again if you get bored. Much flexibility is there for people to change the teams. All the senior level employees are very friendly in nature and are always there for help when you feel stuck at something. The best part is the separate playing and recreational area which is open to employees even in the working hours and on weekends as well. Sports covered include- Lawn Tennis, Volleyball, Badminton, Football, Table Tennis, Music Room , Meditation Room and high class Gym. Employees are encouraged to take part in sports and other activities along with the work to have a proper work life balance. I don't think such

    Cons

    For Digital department company looks in a little low confidence. Already did two layoffs- one in Nov 2012 and another one in March 2014. So this is the only con which i found.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice would be that the company should come out with some solid roadmap for Digital and then stick to it and try to achieve it.

    Pros

    Broad portfolio, providing some level of access to nearly any customer base in the world. High intensity environment, with a strong engineering community to support you.

    Cons

    Currently developing new sales tools and metrics, which has created some gap in customer focus and inconsistency as the organization evolves the tools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The TI portfolio and engineering teams are unrivaled in the semiconductor industry. Focus on exploiting these strengths to build a customer facing, value-add sales force, vs driving purely from numbers.

    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.
