    Pros

    Coworkers, like many place are excellent. Middle management is good too. Pay is good if you're a good negotiator.

    Cons

    It's hard to know where to start. Verbal abuse is standard, as is the total disregard for compliance or other rules of there is no danger of getting caught.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the walk if you talk the talk. Don't say that's it's "all about your people" when it's clearly not.

    Everything gets driven by US heads, despite India being the largest center. Need to re-position and have more say in the decision making.

    Pros

    Really good people, competitive salaries and benefits, going through major cultural change from a good old boys culture to the more professional culture of Intel (parent company).

    Cons

    Company seems to live and die by its quarter to quarter performance so there are often resource challenges, hiring freezes, travel freezes, etc. based on quarter to quarter performance.

    Advice to Management

    Do away with the silo'd business units and departments - have a single unified strategy across the company. Don't try to be all things to all types of customers - pick the areas where you are a leader and win in those areas.
