    I worked at Texas Instruments as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Can't think of any other than it's a paycheck.

    Cons

    Training is for a select few people that the upper crust likes. They think that looking over shoulders will suffice. They stress "ownership" of your goals but if they won't give you anything to own them with, what is the use?? " Read one of the other guys books or something".

    Advice to Management

    Instead of sticking to your little huddle of managers and micromanagers, listen to your workers. Without knowing what they are experiencing you are totally in the dark. Respect what the workers tell you and act on it.

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

    Pros

    Lots of projects to work on, nice co-workers. If you are lucky with a technically competent supervisor, you will thrive. But planning for the long-term is difficult -- there are organizational changes (restructurizations) that happen more often than 6 months! Meaning that your position is in flux most of the time.

    Cons

    management is non-engineering, often incompetent, but arrogant and brutal to defend their salary at your cost. Projects are not assigned based on technical skill but through internal process of managerial decision making. Since most managers are not technically skilled, projects are assigned and evaluated based on a political and other non-technical reasons. This creates very poor and subjective evaluation process.

    Advice to Management

    engineering company can not succeed without technically competent management, at this point too many MBA's too few engineering degree managers even fewer company-grown ones.
