I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Being such a large company, it's nice knowing that you will have a job if you are competent in the least bit. They also encourage internal transfers and strive to keep individuals within the company. The benefits are pretty good (free soda\pop, gym, volleyball court, etc.) From my experiences, work-life balance really depends on the person; if you let yourself work 60 hour weeks people will rely on you to do so. If you want to be out at 5pm every day and not pick up your laptop at home, that seems to be accepted as well. Your performance review may not be off the charts, but that balance is an option.

Cons

Intel is not necessarily a "fun" place to work; I'd estimate the average employee to be in their late 30's\early 40's.

In my product related group, there's a sizeable ramp time before you feel like you're contributing in a meaningful way.

Being such a large company, you may spend days trying to track down the person who owns a particular piece of information vital to your job.

    I worked at Intel Corporation as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Benefits, easy-going attitude, a genuine interest in the employees. Intel tries to do their best to make sure that their employees have the best healthcare and even provide them with free drinks and fruit to show how much stake in their employees that they have.

    Cons

    No job security. We are in an ever-changing market and there is 0 job security. Even if you are a "permanent full-time" employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more blue-badges and less CWs.
