    Pros

    The best part of working at Intel was the great salary and benefits. Work-life balance was also good. I was also happy with my management.

    Cons

    Intel is a gigantic corporation that has lots of typical bureaucracy. You can also be impacted by high-level re-organization decisions that affect your department or division, including up to the department or division being removed and getting option of being laid off or "redeployed" regardless of how you have performed.

    Advice to Management

    Management could try to reduce bureaucracy. I know it is hard given the size of the company, but it would help so much.

    Pros

    Great benefit, flexible time, wide human network

    Cons

    so far, none has been found. If nay, it would be related to duration of decision making time.

    Pros

    Overall avg bonus and good environment to work

    Cons

    growth opportunities and yearly growth very low

    Advice to Management

    yearly growth should be fairly distributed and managers should be given more flexibilities to do that

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, meaningful work. There is also an attempt (usually successful) to make Intel a Great Place to Work (GPTW).

    Cons

    The IP restrictions can leave you somewhat in the dark about other aspects of the company. This likely has a small negative impact on Intel's success (though the protection of IP may be worth it), but it can feel stifling.

    Advice to Management

    Some more transparency is in order. Rumor will fill any void left by lack of communication. This may be an insurmountable problem, but it is still a problem.

    Pros

    Great people work at all the sites. Very good benefits. Allow more time with the family. GPTW is an excellent program if you work there.

    Cons

    Some times there can be a lot of pressure on the job. Some managers do not see what goes on during the night shift.

    Pros

    Great pay, flexibility, pride in what you do

    Cons

    Extremely matrixed, unclear ownership at times, lack of strategic clarity at the executive level

    Advice to Management

    More hierarchy with very centralized and clear direction at the CEO level would actually help employees be more effective. Currently, each organization feels siloed, which causes marketing to be sub-optimized

    Pros

    Intel is a good place to work. Managers in general are given sufficient freedom and support to make an optimal workplace for employees. "Work-life balance" is held in high esteem, though some job roles end up having trouble getting strategic employees the time off that they are due.

    Cons

    In Manufacturing, it can be difficult to move to another group; if you would like to try out a new job role, it can be tough to get that allowed. Intel seems to be "over the hill" so-to-speak and is reflected in the evolution of bonus programs.

    Advice to Management

    Do whatever it takes to get back into the growth space. Intel has always thrived on innovations and making them work whatever the cost. It is at the point where technology is changing, and Intel missed that boat. We need to work to get caught up to the companies that were well placed to get into those new markets.
