    Current Employee - Member of Technical Staff in Alameda, CA

    Pros

    If you want flexible work hours, this is good place to work, but not for growth prospects.

    Cons

    lot of politics at manager level and even though it is part of intel, its benifits are really bad and still operate as a start up.

    Advice to Management

    Better not dependent on only manager for employee reviews, some of the managers play really bad plotics to not let grow smart engineers than the managers.
