    Intel offers an exciting future, varied work, the right combination of challenge and work/life balance

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    ProsGreat salary/compensation. Flexible work hours (as long as your work is quality and results are achieved). Friendly colleagues. Free whole fruit/soda/coffee/tea.

    ConsAs expected with large corporations, you must be adept at dealing with politics. Don't be a jerk, remain curious, and you should be fine. Work areas remain dull, corporate-like, and could use more color / creative design.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe open to change and innovation. Don't get stuck in the past.

    ProsDay to day activity involves complex engineering problem solving.
    Accomplishment acknowledgements and promotions.
    Engineering culture with no work place politics to allow growth and development in all verticals and horizontals based on individual interest

    ConsLarge corporation dealing with lot of nuclear business units, aids growth but possibly with loss of efficiency when untamed.
