    Pros

    Intel provides an enormous amount of flexibility and trust in their employees. Lots of opportunities for volunteer community activities.

    Intel is a big machine. Promotions are difficult after a certain point. Overall total compensation salary, bonus and stock is pretty decent.

    Keep the trust in your employees.

    Laid back management, many perks

    Corporate bureaucracy can be tiresome. Rarely are emails set to a single person, heavy use of distribution lists encourages over-glorification

    Pros

    Great benefits Truly a place that emphasizes the work/life balance Moving away from cubicles towards more collaborative work environments

    Cons

    Transition away from individualistic work environments is slow Company is large and occasionally multiple teams will work on same problem without knowing in-house solutions already exist

    Advice to Management

    Hire less managers, currently there are too many. They would be more useful in engineering capacities.

    Pros

    Aggressive company that seems intent on catching up on the SOC fiasco of about 8 years ago ... still makes the best desktop and laptop CPU/GPUs in the world.

    Cons

    Colluded with other companies to keep salaries low for more than 15 years.

    Advice to Management

    Executive VPs should solicit for processes that they should enforce across divisions ... rather than allowing disparate groups to keep re-inventing the wheel, and decentralizing too much information.

    Pros

    Compensation is good. I think each department is different. My environment was supportive. Training and development is good.

    Cons

    Because it's a big company, engineers have some choices to make about which department or product they want to be a part of. This leads to some jostling when things get reorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Make good use of status reports. Keeping workers engaged is worth it.
