    Pros

    One of Intel's core values is risk-taking meaning they are willing to take a chance on your ideas and that they are open to new things. They also encourage their employees to further improve themselves and their surroundings. The company cares about your health and lifestyle and will run events to motivate everyone. There are often social gatherings of all sorts so that you can get to know your fellow co-workers. Intel has an RCG(recent college grad) program that helps new hires get integrated with other RCGs.

    Cons

    Management can be too busy to help with personal growth sometimes. Also, some full-time workers are overworked and asked to stay past midnight or to work on weekends. In contrast there are also some average workers who will take advantage of the salary work pay and leave early from work. Some of the events that are held in the company office can be distracting and might even be an interference.

    Pros

    Flexible, task-oriented, advancement available, good pay, good co-workers, not strict on dress code/piercing/tattoo policy.

    Cons

    Very busy and sometimes tasks you just spent months on get canceled. Intel changes with the market and priorities can change very quickly. So always expect be doing something new or filling a gap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None to give. Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Great benefits at Intel Folsom. Engineers are pretty helpful and understanding. Nice laid back work environment.

    Your internship experience here is what you make it. If you want to network a lot, you have that opportunity to do so. There are a decent amount of intern events in the summer that are pretty fun too.

    Cons

    Honestly, from my perspective I don't really have any cons. I have heard of some interns not have much work to do, but many companies struggle with keeping interns busy.

    Pros

    Tries to value employees. Lot of smart people working.

    Cons

    Groups spread out all over the works. Sometimes getting work done is a real challenge

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People working on a project should be co-located and not spread all around the world. MCG is terrible for this

    I worked at Intel Corporation as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was apart of an internship program and my experience was okay. They a corporate culture that I am not fond of, but really good benefits.

    Cons

    I found that blue badge employees were aggressive towards green badges... I thought it was uncalled for. I also disagreed with how peer reviews worked. On a couple of projects we had more than half our team that took credit for most of the work, putting those of us who contributed greatly in a situation in which we had to justify what we had worked on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the way peer reviews are done.
