    OK except management

    Logic Design Intern (Former Employee) Folsom, CA

    ProsBig full-fledged company and have many different jobs in multiple disciplines and you can get a good exposure to the latest technology and tools.

    ConsEmployees are not much valued, and sometimes kicked out based on peer reviews. They frequently lay off because of too many employees, and almost everyone seems to fear that.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy manager didn't take any interest and was mostly unaware of what I was doing. And the problem is that everyone relies entirely upon the manager's word-of-mouth.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not Bad

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) Folsom, CA

    ProsFairly professional environment. The corporation seemed like they actually cared about their employees.

    ConsAs a contractor, some of the management obviously weren't as nice to us.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOne manager told me, "you don't get to ask for that, you are a contractor." Ok, thanks for putting me in my place. Since we were moving cubicles, I just thought I would ask for the one I wanted.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Look elsewhere if you want career growth

    Graphics Software Engineer (Current Employee) Folsom, CA

    Great Place to Work... depending

    Graphics Hardware Engineer (Current Employee) Folsom, CA

    ProsIntel Corporation is AMAZING.
    Good Pay but great bonuses and stock.
    Great benefits.
    Sabbatical every 8 years.
    Flexible hours and work from home options.
    Good ability to "move around" in the company

    ConsIt really depends on the business unit you work for... some are better than others.
    I found management on the Graphics Engineering side to be fairly bad. It's hit or miss. I personally had 2 levels of good management, but had to deal with some other groups that were poorly mismanaged and it began to affect my every day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCut the fat. There are too many people going around trying to get others to do their job for them rather than put in the sweat and LEARN. Get rid of these people and higher high performers. And then try to keep them.
