    If you land in a project with a bad manager or with no direction, you can end up spinning your wheels furiously and getting nowhere.

    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.

    Pros

    Surrounded by smart people all around. Go-getter culture. Opportunities to learn and grow. Unique place to observe industry and influence it.

    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.
