    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    This was my dream company and I had pleasure working for this company for more than 8 years. It had good work life balance, other than 3-4 month of stressful work at the time of the product launch. Talented folks around you. Had a option of work from home on need basis (Not for all teams). This is typically a process oriented company and too much document and have good company polices. Here where the pros ends.

    Cons

    Intel work culture had changed drastically over years. Extremely difficult to grow in the organization. Over process oriented, nothing happens with out a meeting. Lots of meeting and emails. Use to have good work life balance, but things started slowly changing after 2008.

    After spending too many years it would be hard to find jobs outside Intel, as the technology you learn would be too specific to the Intel (this is specially if you work in the core team). There would few hands full of companies where your job profile would fit.

    Compensation is extremely low compared to the market. My salary was increased twice for the sake of market adjustment, but even then its still very low compared to the market of similar experience and job profile.

    Pay raises are very minimal or some time non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees, fix low level management. Provide employee growth opportunity, and help employees build their skills.

    I worked at Intel Corporation as an intern (less than a 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.

    Pros

    Sabbatical every 7 years rocks

    Cons

    Too much middle management, too rigid telecommuting policy, slow to react, blinders

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a bad funk permeating the culture. Innovation is not cultivated or appreciated at too many levels. Too many short-sighted middle managers driving creativity and the next "new thing" right out of the employee/company. For all the talk of being exciting, vibrant, cutting edge, that may have been the case over a decade ago but the atmosphere is anything but that today. While we are now comfortably in the lead in technology, most of the people that sacrificed to make that happen have already been shown the door by now. Stop cutting your lifeblood. Stop cow-towing to Wall Street. Take care of your employees and treat them appropriately. They achieve every wild prediction that a new CEO spouts, yet when it is time for salary bumps, you hide behind statistics and hyperbole. You want above and beyond? Be that.

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

    Pros

    Big full-fledged company and have many different jobs in multiple disciplines and you can get a good exposure to the latest technology and tools.

    Cons

    Employees are not much valued, and sometimes kicked out based on peer reviews. They frequently lay off because of too many employees, and almost everyone seems to fear that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My manager didn't take any interest and was mostly unaware of what I was doing. And the problem is that everyone relies entirely upon the manager's word-of-mouth.
