    Pros

    - It is a very interesting place to work at, out of the box thinking is required - Lots of opportunity to further develop your career

    Cons

    - Sometimes there are too many meetings and it is very difficult to reach a solution

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes work life balance is overlooked, but it is very difficult to put an end to that in a corporation like Intel

    Pros

    Good compensation. Amazing talent. Great work environment.

    Cons

    Focal review process and HR process seems very rigid and not particularly useful. Work-life balance is not well balanced. Diversity is a little over the top. I was the only one on our entire team that was local--the vast majority were from overseas and half of the team was female. This could be interpreted as a good or bad thing and I liked my team members much but the composition seemed highly skewed.

    Advice to Management

    Need to better recognize under appreciated employees (that focus on support and training, etc.).

    Pros

    Great compensation while working there. The beverage and fruit programs were nice as well. .Good health coverage while working and after.

    Cons

    Seemingly unethical practices termed as "retirement" when close to that age. Watched next oldest picked off one after another in my area by a certain manager. Was set up for failure per coworkers when trying to perform job to best of the training given. Hung out to dry...

    Advice to Management

    Don't make up "errors' to pin on employees to avoid doing your job, (like providing the needed documentation to do the job as a single night worker on a complex position. Don't pick people off in order and term it "retirement" to get rid of the most experienced help.
