    Pros

    If you get into a good group. It is challenging work in cutting edge areas. Get to work with some of the greatest engineers in the world on the most fantastic things

    Cons

    Fully half of company is manufacturing focused and that is high risk to work/life balance, lots of stress, and expect a short career.
    Have had assure candidates that not all groups are like the manufacturing group on multiple times because negative aspects of that side of company. Good advice though is to ask.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership is changing at Intel and believe more tops down and less employee friendly. Less ability of engineers at lower levels to push ideas to forefront as a result.

    Pros

    Exceptionally intelligent co-workers
    Incredibly ethical business practices
    Excellent benefits
    One of the few companies who offers a sabbatical
    In a position to change the world

    Cons

    For an extended period of time, the senior management has been lacking in vision. With the change to Brian Krzanich, this is changing slowly. He is attempting to implement systems that scan the market. Unfortunately, there is a very entrenched belief that silicon is enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at Samsung's silicon business 15 years ago. It was almost identical in structure to Intel. In the intervening period, they have expanded into adjacent business sectors quite successfully. We have not. It is not a coincidence that this trait is shared by every large successful player in the sector.
