    I worked at Texas Instruments full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - You'll get to work with some of the smartest people you'll ever meet and work on difficult challenges.
    - Good Compensation/Benefits/Diversity
    - You'll get the chance to interact with customers all over the world and work on latest and greatest technology for top tier customers.
    - Good Environment

    Cons

    - Too bureaucratic/corporate and a ton of office politics
    - Will kiss the feet of the customers and put their needs on a pedestal if it means getting a socket
    - App/Design engineers have to clean up for the hyperbole and false promises made to customers by marketing/sales folks
    - Your experience will vary based on what product line you're in

    Advice to Management

    Let technically minded folks lead the way. Don't let marketing/sales folks exaggerate a part past its limitations. Don't ask, "are you enjoying this task" when you already know the only correct answer is "Yes". A good device should be able to sell itself; the customers are technically literate and will know whether you're misleading them or not.

    If you treat the engineer right, and give them what YOU rightfully promised from the beginning, they WILL give you their best performance.
