    Pros

    No micro management
    Open office concept
    Manager is super chill
    Nice relaxation room
    Reimbursement on any trips outside of home to office
    Early close and remote working allowance
    Freedom to bring in your own suggestions and ideas even as an intern

    Sometimes maybe a little too much freedom as an intern

    Advice to Management

    Arrange some standard technical operations for every engineering intern that comes in.
    For example, Creation of newsletters to send out to clients monthly.

    Cons

    - tasks can get monotonous and it's too easy to get stuck in one very specialized vertical

    Constant need to adapt for newer products/ services.

    Pros

    Rewarding of high performer. Constant good player in the market place in terms of revenue and profits. And a solid leader in technology sector.

    Cons

    part of the projects would be cancelled, for example, recent projects in Digital Home Group were not that successful. Also, it's better to have chance working at Intel US site.

    Advice to Management

    If the project is not so promising for future success, I hope management can find the issues earlier and excute the solutions more promptly.

    Pros

    Good place to learn tools and methodology as a first job. I was able to learn many different aspects of the ASIC flow, as a fresh grad.

    Cons

    Work life balance is not that great. Employees spend a lot of time in the office, but this does not make them more productive.

    Advice to Management

    Try to improve work life balance, as it makes employees less efficient and productive. Also try to allow more flexibility for employees to learn different responsibilities.
