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

    Pros

    Great place to work on a variety of projects and receive global experience. I can honestly say I was never, ever bored and was always challenged to be my very best. The company values constructive confrontation and is very data driven so you need to be able to thrive in that kind of environment to succeed. Intel also has a great sabbatical program which helps make up for the challenges in work/life balance. Overall, I'm very proud to have had the opportunity to work at Intel and recommend the company.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance can be challenging; however, I believe this is probably true of most global technology companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward structure should be re-architected to align more directly with performance and promotions should be reworked to create more opportunities for advancement.

    I worked at Intel Corporation

    Pros

    There is a real push from upper management to make work life balance a reality. There are numerous opportunities to move laterally and up, not necessarily in your group but by moving teams... Which is still great for a company this size. Training is amazing here they really focus on getting people up and running and set you up for success!

    Cons

    Management moves around, so you're never managed by the same person for too long, this could be a pro or a con. You can easily get jaded and lose vigor after hitting so many walls /obstacles when implementing change- a company this size hasn't been around for 45+ years because it changes easily. Intel is a smooth running Goliath and tends to throw paperwork at you if you try to change it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more risks- it's a core value! Other than that Working for Intel was a dream!

    Management needs to make sure that tools and mentoring are available to the employees for their career advancement in addition to meeting deadlines on assigned tasks.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits program and good compensation. The schedule is a compressed work week, which gives you really long weekends every week. This also means that you get overtime every shift, and if you work night shift, a 16% differential in pay.

    Cons

    The job is not challenging. Some people may think that is a good thing, but most nights I feel like I am underutilized and that my skills are diminishing. I have a degree in electronics, and I do next to nothing technical at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would screen your new hires better. I realize some of them will be flops, but you can find some real gems.

    Pros

    Smart managers and coworkers.
    Interesting work.
    Great resources to get things done.

    Cons

    They have an 18 month limit on contractors. My manager would have kept me longer and I would have stayed except for that limit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing things the Intel way. Hire as many people as you can afford because I want to come back.
