    Pros

    Strong and healthy corporate culture: ex. you get to talk to any body, nobody owns a private office, down to earth
    Above average benefits: good health care, vacation days, flexible hours/location

    Cons

    Low value add work everywhere.
    The company has been searching for new business opportunity. Sometimes it's frustrating seeing the stock price below market multiplier.

    Growth can be slow and intimidating

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Benefits and compensation are great at Intek. But lower grades should be promoted faster to keep the talent

    Pros

    They have a wide variety of projects and necessary skills. They are a very experimental company constantly doing new things so much of the work is like research instead of mill work production.

    Cons

    Be prepared for disappointment if you can't wait to get your work out to the public. Much of what Intel does in the software field never sees the light of day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so political and pay more attention to the day-to-day operations.

    Pros

    Overall there is interesting work and in general teams have pretty good access to resources. Some good training opportunities as well

    Cons

    The work life balance is sometimes not that great and the salaries are raises can be quite poor. Many times the manger does not appreciate and there can be many processes to deal with which is somewhat of a pain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to the lower level troops

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work was often interesting, partly because the designs were technically challenging and the products were going to make a big impact in the market. The design tools were good, though not always the best. The rest of the design staff was of pretty high quality, as were the research groups. Pay was good for those with good reviews, very good for those doing well in senior engineering levels, but only so-so otherwise.

    Cons

    Groups in different parts of the world (and different parts of the US) have to collaborate often, and it's hard to keep trust between people who don't know each other. Inter-group politics can be nasty. Sometimes the strategic decisions by top management were mystifying, but that's probably true in all large companies.
