    Former Employee - Undergraduate Technical in Chandler, AZ

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

    Pros

    The office culture is good and there is not a lot of ego within the management. The benefits are great, even the interns got two bonuses a year.

    Cons

    There is no organization within the teams and Intel seems to think throwing more people at the problem will solve it. A lot of employees are underutilized and end up pigeon-holed into a certain career track with slow personal growth, if any.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good, decent amount of manager discretion on work life balance items. Possible to re-invent yourself and move in different directions.

    Cons

    Insanely driven, you can have WLB but at a cost. Also, seems like two companies, manufacturing and everything else. Stay out of manufacturing (half the company) and it's great, otherwise, prepare to be a cog.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pass. They won't listen.

    Many rapid changes allowing great opportunities from all BUs.

    Critical to greatly improve the people management and prevent talented resources from separating.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation

    Pros

    Intelligent coworkers, company has good brand recognition, decent benefits, work/life balance if you can manage it

    Cons

    Company has too many employees and can be very political, which limits growth opportunities
    Many middle managers are weak and better off as individual contributors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to reduce headcount to make the company more lean; there's too many people coasting and it's too heavy at the higher ranks

    Pros

    Pretty good pay, smart people to work with, and a lot of resources to make things happen. Things are always changing, so there is a lot to learn, and you don't generally get bored.

    Cons

    Work life balance is not a priority. The work environment is not very friendly or fun, the culture is very grim and serious. Not a lot of career mobilitiy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great if there was more focus on building team identities and cultures.

    Pros

    Short drive from Home, free crappy coffee, little to no supervision

    Cons

    Not the safest place to work, long hours-required to be in the clean room 6-8 hours a day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Speak to your employees once in a while and find out what they need to do their job better.

    Current Employee - Component Design Engineer in Portland, OR

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lot's of resources and secure monopolist position in the market, solid manufacturing, design not leading edge.

    Cons

    Very poor life balance. Expected to work from home on weekend and evenings, but heaven forbid scheduling regular work from home hours during 9-5 weekdays. Endless, pointless meeting and the only way to get 3 hours of uninterrupted time is to work from home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees, make room in schedules for at least 5% training and 5% independent thought for R&D offices.
