    Best experience of my life

    Human Resources Manager (Current Employee) Hillsboro, OR (US)

    Prosamazing collection of talent and resources. Lots of resources. great environment. employees are very spoiled and have a sense of entitlement, it feels amazing to be a part of the rich, winning team. Pay is excellent, development is excellent.

    Consbureaucracy. Finance penny pinches and controls management decisions. Intel might spend 100k buying out someone that is being laid off, but in the same quarter will cut team building budgets from $20 a head to "try potlucks" and similar things. It breeds a frugal culture, but is often very silly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't count on middle management to get your messaging right, or to tell you what is really going on. They all want your jobs.

    ProsThe cubes are spacious and the company give you everything you need to get started the very first day. Time is flexible and the work is enjoyable.

    ConsSome people don't like the idea of working in a cube. Getting access to everything takes a while.

    Wonderful balanced approach to work, personal growth and aspirations and WLE

    Systems Analyst (Former Employee) Bangalore (India)

    ProsRewards and recognitions are many and well-deserved across organization.
    Open and fair pay and work. Exhaustive review of pay and performance.
    Promotions based on performance, interest and ability.
    Work life balance is one of the best in the industry. Very open and flexible to implement what works for an individual as long as work is done.
    Company invests a lot into the employees in terms of training, development and environment.
    Is one of the fastest to adopt new technologies, approaches and concepts into practise and proliferate it throughout even though it is a large organization.

    ConsTight compensation compared to industry. Can get much better pay elsewhere in industry many times.
    High egos based on division/designation for many instances.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep more interface with across industry interactions for all employees to ignite their minds further.
