    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Intel has a lot of intelligent people who have a wealth of knowledge. The salaries at intel are competitive, and probably around the market average. You get full benefits and a decent retirement plan. Every site has an onsite gym and other things to get a break from work. If you don't like to sit in a cubicle there are many common areas where you can work.

    Cons

    Intel location are not particularly the best, Like any large company you can be lost in the crowd. Some groups offer rotations programs. Due to the size of the company some jobs are small in scope and you are unable to see the big picture.

    Trending to being more political than in past, cultural changes impacting some of what made Intel great in the past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revisit the elements of Intel's corporate culture that helped the company grow the way it did in the 80s and 90s - see if you can bring back that type of open, team-focused, shared commitment to goals.

    Pros

    I love all the people I work with. They are incredibly intelligent and they challenge me, yet they are really fun to work with. I like the challenge of learning everyday, and I get to work on some of the best semiconductor technology in the world. The pay is great.

    Cons

    Being on call was one of the most challenging experiences of my life. For me, work-life balance is not possible at Intel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a night-shift engineering team.
