    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

    Overall Intel is a great company with a long history of having created technology that changed the world. They are continuing that tradition today in a variety of different areas.

    Cons

    Intel is a very large company and it is sometimes easy to get lost in all the structure. While this is common at any large company it is especially true at Intel

    Advice to Management

    Provide additional mechanisms for young people to learn from the more experienced senior people and encourage both sides to participate

    Pros

    a talented workforce, a unique culture, and a drive for excellence. there are opportunities to work around the globe. competitive pay and benefits.

    Cons

    sometimes that unique culture can come across as too rigid, too task/result oriented and not focused on the well-being of the people. it's a hard balance. in the manufacturing world, it's 24x7x365 and *somebody* has to cover the work at all times...

    Advice to Management

    realize that burn out can and does happen. manage the on-call situations carefully. encourage employees to pursue new opportunities in the company - it's too easy to become silo'd.

    Pros

    Great benefit, flexible time, wide human network

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

    Pros

    A global company with average benefits. Very strong in the PC and Server segments. The sabbatical program is great.

    Cons

    Top level management has not been able to adapt to how people are using computers today. They totally missed the mobile computing trend (phones, tablets, etc.). They are reducing employee benefits and have very little loyalty to employees.

    Pros

    Awesome work/life balance. Stable job and easy to try out other roles and positions.

    Cons

    Average age is pretty old since people stay so long. Lots of established processes/hoops to jump through.

    Be more agile and innovative!
