    Pros

    Fantastic benefits. Great pay. Easy going management, not micro management.

    Cons

    Flip flop company strategy. One minute trying to build a software business. Acquiring software companies with strong customer numbers then dumping the lot. If you are not part of the chip making setup then you're on thin ice.

    Advice to Management

    Have a plan and stick to it.

    Pros

    Decent pay, reasonable EPB/ECB, easy to get in to Intel, they hire people from any background - biochemistry, stem cell, cell biology also

    Cons

    No work-life-balance, poor RSU offer, most managers suck, night on-call sucks, no life overall.

    Advice to Management

    Be fast to respond to employees on HR Legal or other HR related issues. Do not ask for excuses that you have low HR manpower and multiple cases to review. Consider employee's urgency of the cases reported.

    Management is very bad at employee. They call it resources and behave like technical persons are labors and we can rule over them.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Travel benefits and in-house training. Additional certifications are encouraged.

    Cons

    Highly dysfunctional work environment. Does not promote based on work effort and ethics, but favoritism towards certain employees regardless of their lack of competency. Very political based on certain past/present lead auditors allowed to infiltrate based on cut-throat anticates. This organization continuously has to be to told to hire minorities at the corporate level (although overall Intel is not known for endorsing behind closed doors). A lot of new employees immediately want out. Jobs/careers are threatened when managers become privy of those not adapting to the concentration camp environment. Management is corrupt and known for throwing employees under the bus when their (mgrs) mistreatment and unethical behavior becomes an issue. Have denied employees training when training budget was available.

    Advice to Management

    Managers are not known for soft skills, professional or ethical behavior which HR supports. This organization continuously loses great employees for the sake of keeping bad ones with no real audit competency dedicated to a hostile work environment. Internal Audit at Intel is the epitome of falsifying "Great Place to Work"

    Pros

    - Good policies for women

    Cons

    Depending on project you might be put to concept called Dungeon, where all team members collaborate in meeting room till the problem resolves. My manager being greedy put us in Dungeon for almost a year with no ergonomic setup, bad working environment.

    Pros

    - Easy company to work for if you want to do the bare min and work 9 - 5. (Until the product comes in house then you work 12 - 14hrs a day for months on end including weekends)
    - Company plane can fly you to other locations - easy to do day trips.

    Cons

    - ALOT OF POLITICS: Your career is not dependent on your performance - It is based on the politics of your upper management
    - Many difficult people to work with (too many cultures clashing)
    - No opportunities for growth
    - Very difficult to move out of the group
    - Underpaid

    Advice to Management

    Hiring objectives should be based only on the job functionality - not gender, race, etc. Only on the qualifications of what is needed for the role.
