    Pros

    Interesting work and generally competent/motivated engineers; decent pay and benefits

    Cons

    The corporate culture, and management constantly nagging for schedules and timetables. Having to be on-call every evening and many weekends. Average employee stays only 3-4 years, many quit sooner

    Advice to Management

    Give work-life balance more than lip-service

    Pros

    The best with what they know*

    *they know just one thing & there is no competition in that space

    Cons

    Everything else. So pathetic that they cannot even manage sending out W-2s & that is just a tip of ice-burg!

    Advice to Management

    Cannot say much when a company's President used to be the personal secretary of previous 2 CEOs
    Please consider retiring & bringing external people

  3. they really get what they can out of you

    Pros

    good benefits, nice campus, smart people

    Cons

    work life balance is often a challenge as work demands push into personal life weeknights & weekends. Stress level often climbs above reasonable range. Hardly any time to innovate, create, learn new methods. Employee competition is high.

    Advice to Management

    create a better environment to improve worker morale for a happier work force.

    Poor mid level management. Works like a government org with lots of red tape to get simple stuff moving.

    Pros

    sabbatical/profit sharing decent health insurance even though now comapny is moving most of teh burden to employees

    Cons

    very bad mid level managemnet. Most managers are morons and just beat people. Hardly 1% managers have a vnc and are technically involved. they dont care about employee development. Nepotism seems to be rampant. Most teams have core group of people and they are the ones promoted.

    Pros

    Good pay, great coworkers. Company had some great values. While I don't rate this company so high, it was the best job I ever had. But it is declining

    Cons

    Managers can be a nightmare, no movement, they expect you to move on and they stay put. They make more work fou you and have meaningless meetings and MBOs that just add to your workload and have no value. Redeployment has gotten rid of some really good people!

    Advice to Management

    Remove obstacles and make the people under you have a better day at the office. Make working at Intel a career.

    Pros

    Huge marketing company with great bonus plans and other benefit packages. Depends on the group/team you work for yet very high chance of an envious work-life balance. Many chances to learn tons of different jobs/roles given company to be size of a mammoth or even greater.

    Cons

    Overall business in a downcurve and loosing control of technology leadership yet turning into a huge marketing-ad company. Diversity program to focus on hiring/promoting mix (or number) of certain people/groups by not evaluating the capabilities. As like any other big size companies, bureaucracy spreaded widely amongst the company.

    Advice to Management

    Really need to tranfuse capable resources from outside and stop promoting and/or shifting internal "Intelians" who'd been with the company for ever.

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology. Chip manufacturing is a science within itself.

    Cons

    It is a bottom-line high volume manufacturing company

    Advice to Management

    Just focus on the basics with no frills

  9. Big company, lots of politics. Success all depends on your team and manager.

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility to work remotely, Ability to move around the company and learn a new job/ discipline but mostly lateral moves, interesting technology and very competitive in the chip space. Benefits are good and on par with other companies. Their sabbatical is attractive if you plan on staying with a company for a long time.

    Cons

    Pay is ok if you're outside of the Bay area but not as competitive as other tech companies in the valley. Not many perks either. Your success all depends on who you know and work for. Very political. Lots of ok talent. Intel doesn't attract the best in Silicon Valley but if this is your 1st company out of college, go for it. Very very difficult to move up. Flat organization. Too many meetings that are very unproductive.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce # of meetings, hire more talent that have specific discipline expertise, hold teams accountable to deliver on ROI.

  10. Frustrating environment, overworked for the amount they pay, always looking for people to work overtime.

    Pros

    one of the highest paying employers in the industry, fast paced environment, room to grow if you have a Phd.

    Cons

    negative people, old boy's club, men's locker room environment.

    Advice to Management

    getting to know what your people are dealing with on the factory floor would be advantageous, instead of taking management's word for it.

  11. still looking for break through

    Pros

    still monopoly in PC semiconductor industry. AMD is far behind and has too many problems to effectively compete

    PC market is shrinking
    confrontational culture

    Advice to Management

    take a look at all the failures to diversity in the past, and try to do things differently
