    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, high caliber coworkers, and unique products. This is a one of a kind company with a huge mission and a lot of corporate courage. Super star employees are the norm.

    Cons

    Engineering culture - this could be good or bad, just know what you are getting in to. Heavy bureaucracy in IT. Expectation of an affinity for HW and an EE degree or mathematical bias - other disciplines not really respected. But it IS a HW company.....

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

    Pros

    The pay is good, nice gym, free soda and pretty good health plans.

    Cons

    A lot of pressure, constant stress and pay raises have been falling behind real inflation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just stop it. We know there is a lot of competition but killing everyone with stress won't make the company more innovative.

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

    Pros

    competitive pay. actually cares about ergonomics. sabbatical every 7 years. opportunity to advance career. work for a company that actually wants to be #1.

    Cons

    management always protects management. advances some people who shouldn't manage people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get more honest feedback from employees about all levels of management and take action to fix the problem or remove the manager. some great teams are poisoned by one bad manager.

    Pros

    The quality and variety of the people that you work for and with is top notch, It will challenge you to be on. I have had a variety of opportunities in my 20+ years and have very seldom been bored. New CEO is improving accountability and expectations for the company and leadership.

    Cons

    Stress can be challenging if not managed properly, also Constructive Confrontational style is not for everyone and can take some getting used to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up, definitely taking things in the right direction lately

    Pros

    Great open door culture - can have a 1:1 with anyone at any level

    Cons

    Due to job freezes, can be difficult to move around from role to role; especially if you have a manager that has been with company long time and doesn't believe in moving around every 2 years
    Lots of perks have been removed - telecommute days are gone now
