    Pros

    Eventually received plenty of responsibility as an intern. Excellent company culture and vacation time. Great college graduate/intern culture

    Cons

    Internship started off slow, management can be overbearing at times. Not hiring very much in the bay area anymore, which is unappealing to new grad college graduates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retain newer employees by giving them interesting and challenging work from the start. Hire more in the bay area for competitive talent

    Pros

    Intel trusts the employees to do their jobs and the company always assumes employees act with integrity until proven otherwise

    Cons

    For some reason, they think it is a good idea to put people into jobs they know nothing aobut and have no skills, training or ability to execute well - i find this to be particulary true in the HR organization - which is frightening

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need a tool to give feedback on managers that matters
