    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. Benefits are comparable to industry standards. Respect and integrity in the workplace. Great growth potential - people are encouraged to perform in higher roles.

    Cons

    Top down initiatives are pushed on a tight timeline, while grassroots ideas/projects can take some time to gain momentum. Salaries seem to be at the lower end of the spectrum when compared to current industry standards.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an ear open to the employees at the tactical level and budget time and resources to address their ideas/initiatives to improve their daily functions.

    Pros

    Great benefits comparable pay, excellent development opportunities and the highest integrity possible. Current management is driving change aggressively across the organization

    Cons

    Since Intel is not growing, advancement is a concern at higher levels and it feels like the company has some dead wood. With change comes uncertainty and that adds to the pressure environment.

    Pros

    Big company! Provides a lots of opportunities to switch within the company. Great place to work! Some groups promotes great working cultural - which will let you strike a good balance between innovation and your routine technical development/delivery

    Cons

    Lower salary. Too big to change the directions. Some groups have too much process orientations. Some people have been there for 30+ years - who may have point of view which may not much align with the new generation of engineers.

    Advice to Management

    If you are with Intel for 20+ years, you need to see the new generation engineering management style and adopt! To keep the new generation of engineers interested and working at Intel, some management needs to change!
