Pros

Assuming you have a good manager, work is rewarding, teams are excellent, there is plenty of fun to be had, though in measure with the grinding to get a product out. The company is spinning up an entirely new division (phones and tablets). Free fruit and drinks in the cafe (not food too :( ). There is a board game geek group that has game nights, you can see games at lunch. Overall an enjoyable atmosphere. There are a couple game rooms spread across the FM campus, shuffleboard, Foosball, pool tables, Wii's...

Cons

If you have a crap manager it is time to move. If you don't enjoy working here then you have a crap manager. Simple as that. It may not be your immediate manager, but somewhere close is crap. Identify the crap and move to another group/team/whatever to get out from under the crap.
I've see people complain about being worked to death... Put your foot down and quote Paul about work life balance. If you still have issues, switch teams.

Advice to Management

Seriously, MFT? People who love their managers will post positively about their bosses, and add comments. People who hate their bosses but don't want to quit the company will also post positively, just no comments. No-one believes these are anon, with how well IT tracks everything else. Normally it makes life on the intranet better, but for the MFT, it undermines the anonymous nature of the review.

    Great benefits, lots of toys, fast paced feel, but suffers from having too many EE/CE people.

    Pros

    -The best corporate cafe in all of Austin hands down. We eat like kings and the food is sold at cost, all of it being prepared by our very own classically trained chefs. It's healthy, always organic, and delicious.
    -The pay is far and away the best you're going to find as an Intern in TX. The benefits are great, plus you can pretty much work there as long as you want (summer, 1 yr, or 2).
    -The have a lot of nice equipment that you usually won't ever get to play with at some smaller companies.

    Cons

    -The company suffers from having historically only hired EE and CE people. Literally, no one knows how to do anything software related, aside from basic scripting.
    -Because of this, some departments of the company are essentially just thrown together, loosely affiliated confederations of engineers who don't even know that they don't know.
    -If you're expecting coding standards, centralized software, i.e. a basic methodology to how a group of people should operate together towards a common goal, you'll instead find a multi-million dollar lab with people doing everything manually.
    -Also whenever that person leaves, no one knows how to do what he was doing.
