    Pros

    World renowned brand with attractive benefits

    Cons

    Company site too far away from home; 5 hrs shuttle bus everyday

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, funds for team builders/quarter activities and free coffee/soda/fruit.

    Cons

    Pay is not as competitive, there is low morale due to recent job cuts

    Advice to Management

    Re-orgs/cuts should be implemented swiftly and transparently. Having multiple rounds/rumors keep employees in suspense and is not healthy.

    Pros

    Good company to start your career. You can shift between group within the company and learn different skills ranging from hardware design to validation to software development to next generation software research

    Cons

    Lacks focus on software development. Selling software is not the focus of the company. Software projects get cancelled mid-way because Intel software vendor is working on the same idea.
