    I worked at Texas Instruments as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very easy going environment. Time off was based on how long you've worked there. Pretty good pay and relocation help. Lots of employees who have stayed in the business for 20+ years. Gym on campus for employees, cafeterias were spread out. The intern program was awesome and had a lot of events to meet other interns within the company.

    Cons

    As an intern, the learning process was tough when it came to understanding the company, the different parts of the company, etc. Some might say the compensation/benefits aren't as good as other places.

    Pros

    Salary level is above average. You can learn a lot about discipline and processes. Easy to sell products, good portfolio.

    Cons

    Fluctuation is high. The Board spends too much time on reviewing the field puting extremely high pressure on managers, therefore people are escaping the company. The relatively high fluctuation in every level combined with having no CRM system causes loss of valuable knowledge and relationship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement CRM asap.

    Pros

    Great people and some pretty cool projects, the HR department does a decent job of matching your skills to available positions, so the job was mutually benefitcial.

    Cons

    From what I saw, promotions are hard to come by. I saw a few people that had been doing the same thing for 20+ years with very few people under them. Also, in my BU the people did not seemed determined to move up in the company.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    In the best of times, it can be exciting and fun. If you are an engineer you can be challenged if you want with many different groups to be a part of. Pay is typical but less than what you may get in Silicon Valley. If you like to travel, you can often do that too! Your experience will vary with each group... Some are better than others. Benefits are very very good and more than fair. The company has been very good to me. I hesitantly would recommend it....But

    Cons

    Once you hit 50 years old, watch out. TI is well known for kicking older workers to the curb. How they are able to do this systematically is beyond me...well maybe not. They simply pay off each individual with take it or leave it "packages" where you promise not to tell. Secondly, they use the H1B visa workers like crack. This is mostly to keep pay down I suppose. These are harsh comments but it's well known in the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop letting HR run the show. They often promote based on race or gender and it is obvious to many of us. Promote the best, with blinders on. Stop shoving the diversity junk down our throats. Again, promote and hire the best with blinders. Stop choosing "Golden Boys", kids with no real accomplishments for top positions. It will be your downfall.
