    Pros

    Good pay, great coworkers. Company had some great values. While I don't rate this company so high, it was the best job I ever had. But it is declining

    Cons

    Managers can be a nightmare, no movement, they expect you to move on and they stay put. They make more work fou you and have meaningless meetings and MBOs that just add to your workload and have no value. Redeployment has gotten rid of some really good people!

    Advice to Management

    Remove obstacles and make the people under you have a better day at the office. Make working at Intel a career.
