I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Assuming you have a good manager, work is rewarding, teams are excellent, there is plenty of fun to be had, though in measure with the grinding to get a product out. The company is spinning up an entirely new division (phones and tablets). Free fruit and drinks in the cafe (not food too :( ). There is a board game geek group that has game nights, you can see games at lunch. Overall an enjoyable atmosphere. There are a couple game rooms spread across the FM campus, shuffleboard, Foosball, pool tables, Wii's...

Cons

If you have a crap manager it is time to move. If you don't enjoy working here then you have a crap manager. Simple as that. It may not be your immediate manager, but somewhere close is crap. Identify the crap and move to another group/team/whatever to get out from under the crap.
I've see people complain about being worked to death... Put your foot down and quote Paul about work life balance. If you still have issues, switch teams.

Advice to Management

Seriously, MFT? People who love their managers will post positively about their bosses, and add comments. People who hate their bosses but don't want to quit the company will also post positively, just no comments. No-one believes these are anon, with how well IT tracks everything else. Normally it makes life on the intranet better, but for the MFT, it undermines the anonymous nature of the review.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. very generous at resources needed for work. (i.e. the equipment, software,...etc.)
    2. very open to new idea to solve problems, as long as you can manage your time to implement
    3. if you are aggressive, Intel has many challenge/projects for you. If you are conservative, just doing your duty is not a heavy loading. So you can choose very light life style or very challenging job. all depends on you.

    Cons

    1. Salary is not high to aggressive people.
    2. Hard to be promoted because too many people in there.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are doing fine. Give people more time to implement new idea and learn new knowledge is the first thing I want to suggest.
