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

    Pros

    Great benifits, emplyee stock purchase plan, health plan, reasonable pay, work life balance. Teams work well together with some oppertunities to relocate, learn new skills. Great volunteer seperation package for those not terminated, but encouraged to retire early.

    Cons

    Avoid posting oppinions on the internal or external social sites. They have zero tolerence for any reporting of anything that could be seen as not PC. Review process can be difficult. Suspect the early seperation package offers are used to prevent age discrimination lawsuits. Retirement eligibility is age 55 and 15 years employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Limited promotion options in some fields. Requires active education and searches for internal hire options. Unless active in persuing growth, it is easy to get a NI rating even with excellent produciton, safety, attendence, etc records. Company seems to only wish to retain high achievers, so those not wanting student loans near retirement, may be invited to take early retirement.

    Anti disparagement clause may prevent full honest reveiws by some past employees and definately current employees.

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

    Pros

    Total compensation package, quality of co-workers

    Cons

    Trending to being more political than in past, cultural changes impacting some of what made Intel great in the past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revisit the elements of Intel's corporate culture that helped the company grow the way it did in the 80s and 90s - see if you can bring back that type of open, team-focused, shared commitment to goals.

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time

    Pros

    You will be challenged every day to do things you may have done before, you know well as well as things you have never done and will have to learn fast, to become the expert. This is required and again, you will be challenged and sometimes it is a lot of fun.

    Cons

    Intel can become your life. It is an incredibly demanding company and if you let it suck you in, the will demand so much time, you will loose more and more time from your personal life. You may even end up doing what I did and sleep with the company cell phone by your pillow. Intel has plants all over the world and you may have to respond to issues 24/7.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just remember employees have lives out side of Intel.

    (c) Encourage out of box thinking
    (d) Good compensation

    Cons

    Strategy for wireless not been successful so far. So it can lead to question the applicability of your work. But, I guess from an intern point of view it does not matter!

    Pros

    I love all the people I work with. They are incredibly intelligent and they challenge me, yet they are really fun to work with. I like the challenge of learning everyday, and I get to work on some of the best semiconductor technology in the world. The pay is great.

    Cons

    Being on call was one of the most challenging experiences of my life. For me, work-life balance is not possible at Intel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a night-shift engineering team.
