    Good company aiming to be better. New emphasis on the people and their families.

    Senior Server Architect (Current Employee) Hillsboro, OR

    ProsCompensation among the best in the industry. Highly innovative company investing in future Research and Development. Great leadership and moves fast.

    Senior Component Design Engineer (Current Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsDealing with Top notch technology with reasonable pay package. Good future, commited to spend in research & developement, top notch technology.

    ConsNot as annovative as Apple, Google. Always does the catch up game. Review process is not very growth oriented. Process technology leadership is waning.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake the review process growth oriented, take out sycoophancy, beuracracy and inspire the new ideas. Take out the tools which are falling behind of industry standard eda tools

    Great place to work unless you're in ATTD

    Industrial Engineer (Former Employee) Chandler, AZ

    ProsGreat package overall.
    Lifestyle is very relaxing.
    Open environment.
    Very casual dress code.
    Facilities offer great things like on-site gym, medical facility, cafeteria, softball field, basketball and volleyball courts.
    People (other than some management at TMG) are pretty cool.
    Multicultural (it seems like a UN meeting everytime).

    ConsCompensation ($) wasn't great unless you have higher degrees and not even then.
    Management at ATTD has a lot of flaws and they're not very open to change.
    Workload at ATTD can be a little too much very often.
    Not everyone is up to date when it comes to technology, so you have to deal with that.
    Some people might be to hard to deal with.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave a better communication accross the board, not only with middle management, because they do not give the right message, it gets lost in transition.
    Thank your employees for their efforts.
    Encourage professional development by acting on it, not only talking about it.

    Too much scope for politics and cronyism

    Research Scientist (Former Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    Prostop technology place. Best place to work at if you are interested in silicon technology. Also great now for server ingredient technologies.

    ConsMostly based on meritocracy but lots of scope for mediocre people to get by with BS. Management is too preoccupied keeping themselves in place and looking after themselves than grooming their employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementWeed out the management that exists only by playing politics. Politics to further company/group interests is one thing: it's quite another to use politics to hang around.

    Meets

    ProsAt Intel, I got to build products that really affected the world: walk down the aisle in a plane, and nearly every laptop you see would be something you worked on.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe technical ladder has been gamed.

    Things proceed too slowly.
    Highly bureaucratic
    Some groups can be very demanding and not that rewarding
