    Pros

    Intel is considered to be CSR (corporate social responsibility) oriented company. Seemingly it takes a good care of it's employees in terms of perks and professional development.

    There are however a lot of complaints being heard about the quality of middle management... incompetent managers, etc.

    Cons

    Intel's Focal process is riddled with flaws. Case in point: the requirement to collect 360 feedback from your peers (~7+). Providing feedback on your manager a different matter as there is often no other method to obtain honest opinion on management's performance. But there is an obvious conflict of interest when the very same people who are in your ranking group are asked to provide 360 feedback. It is often very easy to put 2&2 together and pinpoint the source of negative comments. For instance, I remember going way beyond the call of duty helping someone who made some unfair comments.
