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

    Pros

    Most managers with with your availability/time off requirements. Your work is what you make of it, so if you wish to explore and try new things you can, and are encouraged to. It's very easy to get along with people and make friends which makes work not feel so tedious and mundane.

    Cons

    Big corporation, so a lot of red tape and hoops to jump through to get simple tasks done. Different departments have different rules and expectations, so there is no uniform way of doing things or getting things done. Work locations are not as open as they appear to be; for example, if you want to work in Santa Clara, you may do so, providing the group you work for works there as well. Certain job roles are only in certain locations, so you are limited to where you can work from doing what you want to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow us to work from alternate locations without having to change groups/managers.

    Pros

    For a full time employee, you get all of the benefits you can probably think of, and then on top of that you can include a very good salary. The culture of the company is great, the people are awesome and fun to work with.

    Cons

    Intel plays a big role in the development of products, so it doesn't get the attention of the public that most up-front companies like Apple do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's great.

    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

    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
