    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.

    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.

    Engineering vs Non-technical.

    Current Employee - Product Engineer
    Current Employee - Product Engineer

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time

    Pros

    Product engineering(PE) is where the number 1 picks of engineering graduates go. Recently they hire the best graduates from schools for this position but only IF a position is available.
    Very challenging environment. A lot of technical trainings. In turn, a big expectation from you.
    Continuous learning.
    TI is the best semicon industry(see the records). Not the best salary though.

    Cons

    Other groups does not seem to know your job. they think you are doing nothing at all.
    They have little respect for engineering groups(not just PE).
    Non engineering groups are not very supporting and are very demanding. They seem to think that we should support them, but in fact should be the other way around.
    No unity. Very divided.
    Poor work life balance(shifting schedules)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advise other groups to have more respect to engineering groups. After all, engineering is the core of innovation and progress. Concentrate more on your technical employees...
