Good company with a lot of opportunites

Senior Product Development Engineer (Current Employee)
Folsom, CA (US)

I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

ProsVery large stable company. Lot's of good opportunities for an engineer. Huge R&D budget which keeps Intel on the edge of technology path finding. Interesting work. Decent salary, bonuses. 8-week paid sabbatical 7 years. Flexible on time off.

ConsTypical big tech company with high-stress projects, under-resourced, incredibly tight schedules with heavy pressure to deliver the impossible. Many employees are high-strung, burned-out and difficult to work with. Benefits have been declining year after year. All about the shareholder. Inconsistent distribution of compensation, raises and benefits. Competitive employee ranking and rating with politics.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't keep cutting employee benefits when billions are mismanaged. When investments/endeavors don't pan out, spend less next year until they do instead of taking it from the employees.
