    I have been working at Intel Corporation as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great salary/compensation. Flexible work hours (as long as your work is quality and results are achieved). Friendly colleagues. Free whole fruit/soda/coffee/tea.

    Cons

    As expected with large corporations, you must be adept at dealing with politics. Don't be a jerk, remain curious, and you should be fine. Work areas remain dull, corporate-like, and could use more color / creative design.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to change and innovation. Don't get stuck in the past.
