+ Compensation, bonuses, and benefits are great + Upper management keeps everyone informed of what is going on and seems to be competent + Fairly easy to move around to different positions if you aren't happy with your work + Flexible vacation and time off
- The people. Most people are *very* competitive and will only help you if they have something to gain from it. Even those that aren't competitive often wait days or weeks to respond to an e-mail, and are condescending when they eventually do respond. - Every project is separate and you need permission from multiple managers to even read any documents or access files. Getting permissions often takes several days or even weeks. It feels as if they don't even trust their own employees. - Tools are all custom designed and often (poorly) replicate already available software. Very little documentation is available for them. A major part of my job involves fighting with the tools so I can do my actual job.1

Intel upper management has tried hard the last couple of years to genuinely listen to and act upon employee concerns and suggestions. Things do seem to be changing for the better since the previous downsizing in an attempt to create a leaner and faster responding company. Intel also has some really good benefits in addition to competitive salaries.
Intel is a large company and as such suffers some of the same politic type issues that all large companies seem to share. Although management is trying to streamline processes, it is fairly slow to implement them, although it is happening slowly. Sometimes I think that Intel is relying too much on certain types engineering job functions offshore. This leads to some awkward meeting times as well as some quality issues that could have been avoided by doing the functions locally.
