    Layoffs abound and people are very paranoid.

    Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
    Folsom, CA

    ProsGreat pay especially for Folsom.

    ConsVery negative work environment especially with layoffs happening. No training, it's sink or swim. It's doom and gloom everywhere.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSimplify the roadmap so we can do one product GREAT instead of doing lots of mediocre products.

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

    Good company with a lot of opportunites

    Senior Product Development Engineer (Current Employee)
    Folsom, CA

    ProsVery large stable company. Lot's of good opportunities for an engineer. Huge R&D budget which keeps Intel on the edge of technology path finding. Interesting work. Decent salary, bonuses. 8-week paid sabbatical 7 years. Flexible on time off.

    ConsTypical big tech company with high-stress projects, under-resourced, incredibly tight schedules with heavy pressure to deliver the impossible. Many employees are high-strung, burned-out and difficult to work with. Benefits have been declining year after year. All about the shareholder. Inconsistent distribution of compensation, raises and benefits. Competitive employee ranking and rating with politics.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't keep cutting employee benefits when billions are mismanaged. When investments/endeavors don't pan out, spend less next year until they do instead of taking it from the employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
