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

Pros

Very challenging environment, work with smart people, Reasonable base salary, excellent bonus and profit sharing programs, excellent other perks, good job satisfaction

Cons

Office politics has gotten worse over years, sometimes decisions take longer time and can be frustrating, annual focal review process has been complicated but improving

Advice to Management

Improve how people's ideas are recognized. Too many managers and other peers with louder vocal chords take credit for others' ideas. Sometimes, excellent ideas are not adopted or acknowledged immediately and months/years later when they are adopted, the originator doesn't get any credit.
In spite of management efforts, office politics has gotten bad. People are afraid to take risks (compared to 1980-1990s) or think outside the box because either failure is penalized or thoughts outside the box are not accpeted readily. Openness is taking a toll. All of the above have been management promises for years but as we integrate more and more new hires from other companies in a hurry, the old culture has gotten eroded or become incosistent. Needs re-focus.
