    Pros

    A company that really care for their employees. Rewards good working habit. When you make an improvement, you will receive a recognition.

    Cons

    None in MA. If you work in the fab, best to wear shorts and short sleeves, no matter the temp out side.

    Pros

    Fulfilling work. Never the same job twice, and you have opportunities to move within the company. Risk taking is usually appreciated.

    Cons

    Work life balance is hard to figure out. Very demanding work. Stress levels are pretty high. Training is difficult to find

    Advice to Management

    Have better ways of bringing people up to speed. Also, there needs to be more 1:1 sync meetings. Employees need to have their voices heard more.

    Pros

    Mobility, excellent opportunities for advancement, growth and learning. In general, the benefits are very good. Vacation policy is generous and sabbatical is great.

    Cons

    Health benefits have become worse over the years. A lot of bureaucracy and duplication of efforts. Not always easy to get one's ideas implemented.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have advice for management. It seems to be on the right track, but I hope it hasn't started too late to try to catch up with other companies in the Silicon Valley.

    Pros

    Lots of great resources and people to connect with. Fun projects to work on and good work atmosphere. Lots of on-campus events.

    Cons

    Can feel limiting if your team size is small. Not many ways to interact with others in the company unless you attend events.

    Advice to Management

    More work/events with other teams on campus. It would be nice to feel more connected to all of the other employees.

    Pros

    Ahead of its time within the workplace expectations from employees.
    I'm retired from this industry after 35 years at Intel.

    Cons

    Probably most companies headcount does not support the demand. Intel is huge, other negative comments I have are n/a to all locations and divisions.

    Advice to Management

    Inputs would not be applicable, Intel has many managers.
