    I worked at Intel Corporation as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The compensation is more than competitive, and the benefits are good. Some holidays can be off, and there is a 6 month PAID LEAVE about every 7 years. The cafeterias are a nice bonus, but aren't free.
    I got lucky with my working group, they were fantastic. They looked to build each others skills, and were up for code reviews.

    Cons

    The company always wants to be faster, so part of the job is declining new projects that you can't handle.
    Some groups can be very negative and energy draining.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Jump on the mobile movement, and plan ahead instead of trying to "move faster".

    Challenging but rewarding work, great work/life balance, high compensation. What can I say...planning to retire here.

    Cons

    Some bureaucracy that comes with any large company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to flesh out some of the old timers and to give smart, young, talented people opportunities.

    A leader in microprocessor indusry for many years with very smart people who believe in team-work and collaboraion.

    Cons

    With cross-site teams across the globe sometimes it's hard to have work-life balance. But .. it varies case by case and not true for every team.

    Pros

    Really do place a lot of importance on work life balance. For interns and new hires especially, they have a ton of work sponsored events and ways to meet other employees.

    Cons

    Could be very monotonous at times. Same weekly and monthly meetings, a lot of "same problems, different quarter." Not ideal if you're looking for something a little more fast paced.

    Pros

    Good overall compensation package. The sabbatical keeps employees motivated.

    Cons

    You're expected to always best your performance year after year. Off-shoring jobs is a very negative business practice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in touch with your subordinates. Know and recognize what people are doing… not just those working on special projects.

    Night Shift, compressed work week getting used to nights can be hard on the body if you have never done this type of work.

    good night managers and shift manager always there to help out work wise or personally.
