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

Pros

Intel is a juggernaut in the corporate technology world and a recognized brand. Have competitive salaries with great benefits (health, RSU) and a 60 day paid sabbatical program for all FT employees after 7 years of service. A lot of opportunity to switch positions and try new technologies and markets. When you have a strong manager and a fun and creative team...it's a great place to work

Cons

Too big for it's own good...you become a number and it's difficult to make a big impact. Can easily get lost in the crowd and not enough financial or career motivation to work extra to get ahead...complacency is rampant because of the benefits. Too many internal promotions to middle managers with direct report responsibility who should not be handling people's careers. Intel losing big time in mobile and consumers don't see Intel as a relevant company despite what management thinks and the kool-aide they serve. Office politics are increasing and end up spending more time and energy internally rather than on customers or growing market share.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Greater scrutiny to how they promote internally to give people direct report responsibilities. Too many managers should not be allowed in their role which only creates a toxic environment. Invest and innovate as much as possible to win in mobile...Intel is losing and not relevant yet and has a ton of work to do. At the entrance to Intel's HQ office says..."innovation is everything"...it's time to live up to that belief.
