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

    Pros

    Independent work environment. You manage your own work flow and the company is very encouraging and supportive in helping you meet your future work goals. Employees are open to speaking with each other 1:1 no matter their respective job levels.

    Cons

    Employee diversity could be a little better.

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Intel is a GREAT place to work. Has wonderful benefits, and work environment. Employees are the best.

    Cons

    Not many cons to speak of. A few engineers that were promoted into management, should not have been. But other than that, no issues.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop and innovate great processors and products. Listen to your employees, as they have some great ideas.

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

    Pros

    The office culture was very relaxed. You can wear almost anything to work. Also, there wasn't a set amount of sick days, which is nice.

    Cons

    Management sometimes feels disorganized. You are a very small cog in a very large system. This makes one feel that he is not making much of a difference at the company.

    Advice to Management

    Overall the internship was a fairly pleasant experience. Although, there were times when I felt that I wasn't learning much. I think management should plan the process a little bit more thoroughly.

    Pros

    great colleagues and great environment.

    take the advice of contractors to grow the company and hire on those that are well worth it especially if they out-perform their counterparts.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pays well, company shuttle flights are convenient, easy to move between jobs, supports working from home

    Cons

    Never working on exciting products, always catching up to others with more expensive/less capable products. Stock isn't worth anything.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interns are treated exceptionally well at Intel. You can earn the respect of peers and managers and work on high-impact projects. As an intern, I also have a lot of freedom as to what projects I choose to work on, and I can often work remotely.

    Cons

    The only thing is that I wish the campus locations were closer to urban centers! I grew up in the city, and the suburban campus locations don't really cut it for me.

    Advice to Management

    Dear BK, Intel has a great company culture and values. However there is a risk of alienating new young talent that have been spoiled by startup cultures filled with office perks and cool locations with Intel's old school gray cubicles.

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

    Pros

    Loved my co-workers and the projects I was assigned to work on. There were lots of fun events on the Folsom campus that provided a nice environment.

    Cons

    There were no other interns on my team and because of our location in a lab, I felt isolated from other employees.

    Advice to Management

    Assign more that one intern to a team.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Worked on interesting products. Company acts upon negative feedback regarding managers performance. Reasonable benefits.

    Cons

    No stability for engineers - company always seems to be cutting jobs in one group or another. Engineers have little faith in the upper management. Very slow (if any) career progression for engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Be up front and honest about re-organization. Listen to, and act upon, the opinions and advice from successful engineers coming into the company from other employers - especially those with knowledge of SoC design. Many of the managers and engineers have used the same outdated methods and done similar designs for many years. It's no wonder the company is inefficient and bloated.

    Pros

    Good company of you love technologies. Salaries are industry average. Perks and comps are great.

    Cons

    New CEO is more worried about pleasing the shareholders than supporting the enployees. You may have to play politics to advance depending on your group. Some managers will activity block you from moving to other groups.

    Advice to Management

    Your technicians ( non engineers) are the foundation of your company. Listen to them and be able to lay out a path of advancement

    Pros

    Good people, free drinks in the cafe, gym, Intel owns its own airplanes.

    Cons

    Reorgs all the time, has lots its way. No clear long term strategy.

    Advice to Management

    It's been 5 years. Why don't you have a competitive mobile product?
