11 Application Engineers from National Semiconductor submitted salaries.
CEO: Donald Macleod
Status: Acquired by Texas Instruments on 9/23/11
Founded in 1959 in Santa Clara, California, National Semiconductor was a company that created power circuits, drivers, audio amplifiers and various other operational and communication products to help with data conversion solutions. The company primarily marketed itself within various electronics including automotive, medical and industrial applications.
The company was purchased in 2011 by Texas Instruments’ Silicon Valley division. The National Semiconductor culture continues to be strong because many remained employed during this acquisition. Now, however, everyone works for Texas Instruments, which is based in Dallas, TX and employs over 35,000 employees.
Texas Instruments has been involved with various types of electronics in many industries, offering everything from calculators to sophisticated medical equipment. Working at National Semiconductor included the same types of technology, so employees are able to continue working within the same industry with the exception being that they are now employed by a stronger company who offers more to their employees.
Texas Instruments, or TI, is continuously expanding to offer new forms of technology to the world around us, which is evident through the acquisition of National Semiconductor. There are a number of National Semiconductor careers available at the Silicon Valley branch of TI in Santa Clara, California. Candidates should have strong backgrounds in technology, engineering, or mathematics when looking for employment within the company.
Anyone looking to work in the corporate side of National Semiconductor should focus on the headquarters of Texas Instruments in Texas. Positions at headquarters can include executive management, marketing, finance and many other divisions. TI employees rate the company very high in terms of growth potential and the company features a less than average turnover rate, which is proof that employees are satisfied with their employer.
National Semiconductor was a very strong company, however they were never able to offer the same benefits as such a large company as TI could offer. As a result, National Semiconductor benefits didn’t offer the same as TI, which now include health and dental insurance as well as other types of insurance, retirement 401k plans with company match, strong educational development plans including tuition reimbursement as well as a number of other benefits.
Anyone interested in employment with TI should figure out which state they want to work in as well as which department. From there, TI will interview anyone, focusing primarily on education and experience as it relates to improving the TI family of products for around the globe.
