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

    Pros

    Good Career opportunities for learning. Diverse teams with a variety of work available. Great atmosphere in the team with a lot of team activities like quarterlies, team lunches etc. Good benefits package.

    Cons

    Does not reimburse interns for tuition credits during internship period. Work life balance can be improved. Compensation is a little below the market.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if they could reimburse the interns for the tuition credits they need to take for the internship period.

    Politics at management level (sure there are at any company), pushed down decision with no feedback that make the work place worse, usually when trying to unify approach. Trying to have one size fit all

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention and fight for your workers

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

    Pros

    Lots of scope for different roles across many business units, bountiful training opportunities, decent pay, good benefits, great place to work events, flexible schedule, work/life balance and surrounded by smart people with passion and work ethic.

    Cons

    A bad manager can wreck your career irrespective of skill set or accomplishments. Focal process rewards those who embellish their achievements or who can market their brand. Never stay in the same position for more than 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Revise focal process to include stakeholder feedback and lessen impact of a poor manager.

    Pros

    Average base compensation and with benefits they are slightly above market average

    Cons

    Annual increases are slow. At that rate, one can easily fall behind market pay rate and decide to pursue other opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Consider increases per salaries paid in the market for equivalent job responsibilities.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1. Coworkers were all friendly and patient as I got used to the job. 2. Access to gym and any labs needed for work. 3. From what I've seen, great management and advancement structure.

    Cons

    1. Cubicles. Company has been working to make this better by making lower cubicle walls, but just serves to make it less private. Cubicles wouldn't be so bad if there were options.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the working environment by adding areas for collaborative or solo work outside of the cubicle, while maintaining the option of using a cubicle for private work. Basically, make the workplace seem more open.

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

    Pros

    Great technology and smart people. Worldwide leader in their field.

    Cons

    New management is all about numbers, not people. Intel no longer seen as a cool place to work for the younger generation. Lots of oldtimers still hanging on.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the meritocracy issues that are currently plaguing the company. Don't reward employees simply for the sake of diversity, which seems to be a higher priority than more qualified candidates.

    The salary is just normal. Some of my co-workers doesn't work really smart. And I don't like the food in the cafe.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent salary Quarterly performance bonuses Annual company performance bonus Many miscellaneous employee perks Major employer in the Sacramento area Great retirement packages, achievable at younger age than most companies

    Cons

    Always laying people off -- usually when the company reaches 100,000 employees. Major target of layoffs is IT Communications, primarily because it does not directly generate income for the company. Frequent change in management among department heads. Poorly trained managers. Company's performance/profitability within industry is declining.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure all managers completely know how to do their jobs, to avoid situations where other employees lose their jobs due to the manager's incompetence. Stop putting bottom line -- i.e. projections to shareholders -- ahead of employee performance. Consider the long-term implications of "employee growth." Requiring employees to learn new skills outside their specialty, or forcing upper-level management to switch divisions every few years, does not always lead to success.
