    Pros

    Great Perks
    Good flexibility for taking off
    Great Benefits
    They bend over backward to keep you comfortable in your job
           Quarterly trips, both by the individual team and the whole site
    Great management from top to bottom - they try to keep you informed as they can

    Cons

    Intel Austin has a recipe for doing things, and it mostly involves using low tech and compensating using large amount of people/resources to compensate.
    If you are a new hire or low experienced, this shouldn't matter because you need to learn the ropes anyways
    If you are a high experienced person, it will be difficult to acclimate to the brute force way of doing things.
    If you are a person who likes to have control or some input of how things are done, I would not recommend Intel Austin as a place to work. There may be some other sites where this may not apply.
    Changing things may not be possible because the majority of the methodologies are not created in the Austin area.

    Advice to Management

    If you wish to retain the best and brightest, you will have to have to allow some kind way for them to contribute to the methods that are being applied to them.
    If you are not interested in doing that, I would recommend sticking to hiring college grads and low experienced people. It would allow austin to keep the current methodology going.

    Pros

    CEO and senior leadership team are excellent with good vision. Good compensation and benefits but make your best deal going in. Comp levels are rarely addressed for changes in market place.

    Cons

    Management team below senior levels needs development. Legacy issues keep the company from being as agressive as it could be.

    Pros

    Meritocracy is not just a buzz word, people live by it. The company rewards employees who perform and encourages people to work together towards a common set of goals.

    Cons

    Like most large companies, it is easy to get lost in the shuffle. Certain organizations can be very political as well.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing a great job of manufacturing and delivering innovative products. If only the stock price reflected the company's performance.

    Pros

    Good pay
    Good benefits
    Excellent work/life balance
    Had some great managers
    Great development programs
    Excellent support while I was working on a master's degree
    Some really great people

    Cons

    Too many chiefs, not enough Indians. There were some efforts to reduce layers of management, but they didn't really stick. I worked at a small site and a lot of the corporate culture didn't make it to our location.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to share the vision of where the company is going with employees. Reorganize a little less...let departments and teams really get the hang of working together for a while before you "reorg again".
