    Pros

    Great technical place to build a career. However, you need to plan your own career path and aggressively follow it to the T. No one at Intel will shepard you along or mentor you.

    Cons

    Annual review system is a forced percentage process for every department in the US for full time salaried employees. No matter how great the group or team is, there will always be 5% at the top selected for promotions or great salary increases, and 5% at the bottom assigned an Improvement Needed status. Although promoted heavily, there really is no such thing as work-life balance at intel. Your work is your life... period.

    Pros

    Benefits, challenging work, great co-workers. Work/life balance is encouraged, but so is working long and hard hours as needed.

    Cons

    Going through some cultural changes, along with business changes. Some of the commitment to employees from the past is weakening.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the talk when it comes to valuing employees and treating them with respect. Keep one on the past and how the company demonstrated their commitment to their employees during the boom and lean times in Intel's storied past. Don't be too hasty to change for sake of saving a buck, as you may end up with knowledge base attrition that will cost you more in the long run.
