    Pros

    Money, but that too is not that awesome considering there are very few growth opportunities for Engineers.

    Cons

    (1) If you are Engineer, you will get a pager 24/7
    (2) Most employees are desperate to QUIT but are not able to because they are "international" and have visa issues. They get stuck and by the time they are eligible to apply anywhere else, its too late and their skills are too specific for any other company.
    (2) when you are "on call" for a week - you will be expected to stay up 7 am to 7am the next day, may be 1-2 hours of sleep in between if you are lucky for 7 days. Its wretched and you will feel considerably tired and yet no recognition will be awarded because there are several people at Intel are doing it as well.
    (3) They absolutely dont care about Employees' life. You will be expected to check your email during vacations.
    (4) If you are an Engineer, and you need to take off even 1 weekend to go out of town, you would need to arrange for a back up and explain your manager that you will be gone for a weekend and why.

    I am planning to change companies as soon as i can.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire Engineers to work night shifts and weekends separately, its not possible realistically for people to be productive and enjoy work if they are not getting any sleep or vacation.
