    Pros

    Very open/approachable management. Good communication from senior management on why the company does what it does. Good work-life balance, you will work hard but when you need a break you will get it. Excellent health care. Challenging work. Good at providing opportunities to try different jobs.

    Cons

    Performance can be more influence by the visibility of the projects on which you work, than on the performance on the job you have which may not be that visible. Making significant change is difficult. Aversion to risk at middle management has increased with the size of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Not every project is on management's radar. Reward/recognition should be more driven by performance to expectations of the job at hand, not by what is most visible to management.

    Pros

    Met many great people from all over the world. Most people are nice and easy to work with. On-site recreational facilities.

    Cons

    Management reduces head count, but cannot decide what work can be eliminated and you get no new tools to do the work. They do not value people who have worked at the company for a long time or are getting older.

    Advice to Management

    Really learn to change your paradigm, embrace new tools that are available to become more effective. Don't rely on spreadsheets for everything.

    Pros

    Great opportunities for advancement internally.

    Cons

    Hard to get back into Intel once you've left if you do not have a Bachelor's Degree.

    Advice to Management

    Consider applicants with lengthy experience and qualifications from military background, work experience... not just "minimum requirement Bachelor's Degree".

    Pros

    Benefits are excellent. Safety is the top priority.

    Cons

    No concern whatsoever for employee burnout and health.
    Management is inept and unable to actually manage and inspire their employees--they simply micromanage to an extreme degree and never allow the engineers any professional latitude. The engineers are basically told exactly what to do--any creativity that deviates even slightly is looked upon negatively.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers who have bonafide real management experience instead of engineers. They need managers who can inspire people to accomplish the mission. Leading by fear and intimidation shows the management has essentially zero previous real management experience.
