    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Easy to switch between business units/products lines based on self interest to experience new design challenges. Company is open for that, managers obviously might not :)
    Get to interact with wise people of industry and grasp from their experiences. Good culture. (not in all groups)
    Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Changing culture due to competitive market. Some groups have less focus on excellence rather more on project delivery. Sometimes, good work gets restricted to some and others are considered execution brigade.

    Advice to Management

    Preserve Mother Intel Culture and Excellence.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Great place to learn cutting-edge technologies
    - Nice overall compensation
    - Nice offices & benefits
    - It has an area dedicated to help the community (Community Team)
    - You can develop a "career path" inside the company

    Cons

    - Not a software company. Most project never see production ever.
    - Not a very clear direction given by directors and managers (at least for Software Division)
    - Anual performance review based on meritocracy can be very subjective. It 's also counterproductive to teamwork itself as in the end you need to end up competing with your colleagues for the same amount of budget.

    Advice to Management

    Just stop playing with projects and focus efforts in what needs to be focused (so that software people inside the company can also feel themselves useful) Forget about hardware and start doing software the way software needs to be made.
