    Stock and overall company is moving in the right direction.

    Cons

    Recovering from a stumbling period
    Relies too heavily on process technology to maintain competitive advantage
    A little too much focus on how other companies pay employees and their relative headcounts, instead of what is needed to get the job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The best employees need the best compensation.
    Focus on obtaining and retaining the best talent.

    Pros

    Great people, Lots of resources and courses to enhance your knowledge and learn new things. Has some cool things to work on if you find the right team.

    Cons

    In my organization, Good software practices are spoken about, but the culture still isn't there. More driven about by the short-term rather than the long term. No time to research and investigates ways to better the team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees time to enhance their skills and increase their knowledge in other areas as it could be beneficial to your team as well

    I have been working at Intel Corporation as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Most managers with with your availability/time off requirements. Your work is what you make of it, so if you wish to explore and try new things you can, and are encouraged to. It's very easy to get along with people and make friends which makes work not feel so tedious and mundane.

    Cons

    Big corporation, so a lot of red tape and hoops to jump through to get simple tasks done. Different departments have different rules and expectations, so there is no uniform way of doing things or getting things done. Work locations are not as open as they appear to be; for example, if you want to work in Santa Clara, you may do so, providing the group you work for works there as well. Certain job roles are only in certain locations, so you are limited to where you can work from doing what you want to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow us to work from alternate locations without having to change groups/managers.
