Experience means squat at Texas Instruments!
Anybody over 40 has a target on their back here. People are even asked to train their replacements! Talk about messed up.
Doss TI really think that a greenhorn with no experience and basic knowledge can do the job of somebody with decades of experience under his belt?
If you are working at TI and you are nearing 40, dust off your resume. Chances are that come next layoff, you are going to need it.
