    Pros

    Broad, exciting opportunities for cross training and career changes at a bell-weather industry leader...innovation at its very best...amazing what the engineers can accomplish.

    Cons

    large, somewhat bureuacratic at times. Lots of lip service about meritocracy, but I am not completely convinced...often feels employees are not valued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    develop further appreciation of employees in your compensation philosophies.

    Pros

    Overall great tech company and a good place to work. Given the economy, Intels very well positioned even though times are tough. Good pay and benefits, good healthcare options, but few frills (ie no free lunch)

    Cons

    Lots of pressure, lots of competition, but this comes with any opportunity. Managers are expected or feel they are expected to contribute in ways outside of the management role...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need sot lead and manage their teams, not be rewarded for personally driving efforts just to drive them. Overall, were positioned well strategically, execution has been great...we need to sustain this which is not trivial.

    Pros

    Good work life balance and opportunity to learn and excel your knowledge. The company is truly committed to making this world a better place.

    Cons

    Slackers that complain get just as much chance at raises than the hard workers do. It all depends on the manager and how well you can write down a few accomplishments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Redefine focal. This is a process that not only cosumes a significant portion of time each year for employees, but it is also extremely biased. I once had a manager that would not take the time to have 1:1's with me. He hardly new what my job was until he had an escalation. Needless to say I never was rewarded what was due to me at focal. Since I have had managers that truly recognize the hard work I put in and they take the time to see the improvements and cost reductions I am saving my team and company. There has to be a better way to reward employees for their hard work, and a better way to cut the fat when employees are not pullilng their weight. There are WAY too many slackers that I work with on a day to day basis.

    Cons

    manager was busy and give interns very low level jobs, which wasn't so great for learning purpose and growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe not treat the interns only as cheap labor and actually give them some quality work to do. Especially if they are not undergraduates...
