    Pros

    Good benefits and salary Looks good on resume to have worked at Intel

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracies, which stifle innovation in non-chip areas. Company is stuck in the "we're a silicon company" mindset, and doesn't understand how to think in areas such as software.

    Advice to Management

    It's nice to have a near monopoly in the PC/laptop market, but the lack of success in mobile shows that you need to innovate beyond your historical competencies. Look beyond silicon and try to find ways to use your resources and influence to penetrate other markets. Software is the key to make your own x86 platform more valuable, so let your software guys be more nimble and work on things besides drivers.

    Pros

    It's interesting work, with some difficult technical challenges. Work/life balance is good, outside of the final push towards product deadlines.

    Cons

    Your long-term professional success largely boils down to finding good managers. As the saying goes, "up or out"...you will eventually work your way up to the point where you struggle to be competitive against your peers, then it's only a matter of time before the "focal" (performance management) process chews you up and spits you out.

    Pros

    Ethically sensitive company but also having lots of internal politics

    Cons

    Not just Intel but all hardware based IT companies are falling nowadays and their products are becoming commoditized.

    Advice to Management

    There exist too many managers and people who are paid for processing other's work and passing them up the ladder.

    Pros

    Great schedule, compressed work week with lots of time off. Good pay and great benefits.

    Cons

    Managers are hit or miss, some are great and others incredibly poor. You're lucky if you work for a good one, your career will soar. But get stuck with a bad manager and watch out, all your hard work will be for nothing. Also, hirings and layoffs are very unpredictable. The moment Intel announces a bad quarter people start talking layoffs. Then, at the very same moment, job postings appear on the career page. They announce layoffs while at the same time post new jobs. It's very unpredictable.

    Advice to Management

    Actually manage your people and don't try to be buddies with them. Don't play favorites and be equal and fair to everyone. Trust people to do their work without managers hovering over them.

    Intel is a good company with decent company culture and respect engineers

    Pros

    Good healthcare benefits, overall, people are supportive and good to work with

    Cons

    the demands of a 24/7 job make it very difficult to achieve work life balance sometimes

    Advice to Management

    Please reconsider shift engineering, when done well everyone is much happier and the factory runs better with less turnover rate

    Pros

    Great technology and smart people. Worldwide leader in their field.

    Cons

    New management is all about numbers, not people. Intel no longer seen as a cool place to work for the younger generation. Lots of oldtimers still hanging on.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the meritocracy issues that are currently plaguing the company. Don't reward employees simply for the sake of diversity, which seems to be a higher priority than more qualified candidates.
