    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits (pay, healthcare, legal plan, stock options, stock purchase plan). Challenging work with very smart, driven people. Pay is higher than average for Sacramento Area. Great perks/drawings for sports/concert tickets at Golden1 Center and other local venues/events. Onsite cafes, vision services, and dental office.

    Cons

    Competition is high for choice assignments and positive exposure.. Yearly focal/review process can be brutal. Some managers expect employees to be on call and work from home/check email nightly. Employees are expected to move up or out. Too long in a grade level or job (even if you like it and perform well) is looked at as not performing well. Recent downsizing which disproportionately hit women and people 50+.

    Advice to Management

    Need to improvement development efforts especially for women.

    Please get rid of the in-fighting and renovate the old style company culture. We are in the modern age now not in '70s.

    Cutting edge technology, great co-workers, strong diversity move, many opportunities to move to other jobs within the company, good overall benefits

    Layoffs do demoralize the workforce especially since it is being seen as removing people who have achieved a lot and become "expensive" for the company - walk the walk when you refer to "constructive confrontation, not use it for punishment
