    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Cutting edge tech, innovation, creativity and informed risk taking highly encouraged and supported. Decent pay. Good benefits. Management takes personal responsibility for fostering learning, optys for employee growth and ensuring job satisfaction. Tries to keep work life balance in play even though everyone is quite busy.

    Cons

    Not enough people to accomplish desired tasks. Most find themselves unofficially working 24-7 and stressing about finding time to do everything at high quality level. Average wont do. Can be incredibly stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Stop downsizing. You are risking burnout of an incredibly talented and hardworking crop of employees who truly desire to see intel succeed as opposed to just finding a job to pay bills. Most of us bleed blue and will continue to do so for years to come if you are careful not to wear us out.

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Friendly office environment. Talented people. Good benefits. Free coffee, soft drinks, and fruit. Health and fitness centers on campus.

    Cons

    Giant sea of cubicles, and renovations are LOWERING the cube walls. Management policies under Brian Krzanich are more cutthroat. Long therm accumulated experience gets thrown out in favor of 'what have you done for e lately".

    Advice to Management

    Put people in jobs they actually want to be doing, but be sure to reward the people who "take one for the team" on one project to fill in when nobody else was available by ensuring that they get their pick of assignments on the next project. Don't lpunish them by keeping them on such tasks. Stop treating talent as a commodity.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours and environment. It's a big place and with some work you can move around and find your spot for a while. You never stop running into amazing and smart people. Intel is a power-house of brains!

    Cons

    A lot of management. So much brain-power yet it sometimes feels like a Ferrari stuck in 2nd gear. Corporate management has lacked vision for many years. Recent lay-offs-by-spreadsheet and lack-luster stock performance impact moral. I feel we are turning more into a factory than a place of research and innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Become visionaries. Stop trying to please everyone. Get out there and connect to the end customer. Stop worrying about stepping on toes! Get out there and create something. Stop being reactionary! Treat your employees like family rather than property, even if it means some tough love. You're a technology company -- if you're not fostering innovation, then you are going the wrong direction.

    Pros

    Great company and bonus options Good benefits Great work culture and vacation policies

    Cons

    Management chain is sometimes like a kid that wants to play with expensive toys, and throw them away after playing with them for a few months They try to get their foot in the software and services market, but eventually decide against it and think that their priority is only HArdware,, which makes sense but also shows that they cant multitask in a sense. For example, getting online within offices and getting stuff done on the internet is a huge pain, which in todays world just doesnt cut it

    Advice to Management

    Make things accessible to the user
