I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Excellent engineering skills, upper management is open and honest about strategy, industry, etc.
Most engineers are very good at their job, and are very dedicated. The entire company is very tech-centric. I've worked at companies that aren't this way, and it is refreshing to see upper management really understand the tech industry.

Cons

Lots of politics! Also, middle management seems to have a hard time accepting that the Intel way of doing things is no longer the universal way. There tends to be a lot of people there that think that the rest of the world is waiting for Intel to produce something before it will buy it. Trouble is, that's no longer the case. Lots of internal politics, also. A poorly worded email at the wrong time can kill your entire yearly review.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's time to modernize procedures! Intel is badly behind in the tech world and needs to catch up. Upper management seems to be trying, but there is still too many middle managers that still push the old Intel way of doing things.

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

    Pros

    My work is very interesting, the people I work with are smart, motivated, and fun. Note that every department and boss is different, and each experience is definitely unique, but on the whole the company has good values, does great research, and provides a challenging environment.

    Cons

    Long hours, demanding management, and dilapidated computer systems for setting up wafer processing and in general extremely slow computer systems (oh the irony)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More focus needed on work-life balance.

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

    Pros

    It's an enormous company that works on a variety of things which allows for movement to different jobs. There are lots of talented folks working there.

    Cons

    It is an enormous company and it's easy to feel like a tiny cog in a machine.
