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

    Pros

    Company Culture:
    Company encourages creative involvement of every employee.
    There is a constant push to improve processes - to make processes more efficient and not accept things as is
    Great work/life balance (of course depends on the type of role you are in)
    Flexibility in work schedule as far as ability to work from home
    Great benefits for top performers - options, RSUs etc.

    Cons

    Base salary increases are nominal
    Artificial diversity being created in management roles (does not appear to be based on talent)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not drive diversity for namesake. Let promotions be driven by talent.

    I have been working at Texas Instruments full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    * Management is upfront and honest
    * Pay is solid
    * Team-first environment
    * For the most part they focus on the important metrics

    Cons

    * Lots of management overview aka lots of TPS Reports
    * Difficult to do overseas assignments unless you are top management
    * No opportunity to advance unless you live in Dallas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Improve HR Department. They are unhelpful.
    * Put more emphasis on internal technology. Laptop policies are absurd.
    * Work environment matters. No more cubicles and invest in improving the old worn down buildings that we work in.

    Former Employee - Design Engineer in Bangalore (India)

    I worked at Texas Instruments full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work environment with helpful mentors/colleagues, chance to work on some awesome products, great place to start out professionally- will have plenty of opportunities to get exposed to different aspects of the semiconductor business

    Cons

    Too many tapeouts of half baked ICs- you work extra hours to make sure that the IC is sent to fab and later that product is shelved..after a while you start to wonder whether the management has a clear plan
    Too much emphasis on sales- that being said, there are a few teams where the emphasis is on R&D.
    Work life im-balance- most of the year especially close to tape-outs design/layout engineers spend late nights and weekends in office. After the IC comes back from fab, it is the turn of the test engineers to work late.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to minimize last minute tapeouts- its difficult for employees to have confidence in the management goals if most of the tapeouts that involve a great deal of personal sacrifices from the employees are not realized as a revenue source
