    Not much interesting green field dev projects.
    Too much CS cupport

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More radical risk taking leadership which consults engineers for improving the stack drastically.
    Hire more raw young talent.

    Make the place more fun to work with more off-sites /parties.

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Salary and Working Environment. In manufacturing the compressed workweek schedule is great for having extended weekends. Overall a good company to work for.

    Cons

    The culture can be too engineering centric - demanding expectations and lack of work life balance can be draining in the long run. Limited room for advancement and constant threat of looming layoffs make for a stressful environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs to be more flexible and open to innovation. While there is a drive from the top to focus on user experience this doesn't filter down to the average worker. Poltical rivalries between sites and divisions slows company down.

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

    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.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Intel, the brand, the lessons from intel inside - manager are somehow accountable, products are usually kick-ass, global footprint, can move laterally - not up. Flexible hours, wide array of work areas. Salary is fair.

    Cons

    need to improve layoff process, we end up loosing valuable people, and retaining bad apples. Very centralized corporate group. No career advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep management accountable, and their lieutenants as well. Business is though and just saying yes to everything that comes from above is not helping us.
