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

    Pros

    Great employer with good employee values and benefits globally. Maybe not the most competitive in the bay area, pay wise, but Intel really does allow for more of a "work/life balance." Sabbatical is a great benefit that many other places can't compete with and Intel recently announced 2 months paid bonding leave for all new parents, which is a great way to attract female talent. Intel is also famous for their DOT (development opportunity tool) where employees can sign up and interview for assignments to develop professionally and shape their own career! This is a great tool.

    Cons

    The lack of assigned desk space for many employees is frustrating. It's an open work environment, which is great for traveling employees. Not so great for employees that come in every day and have to wonder if they will be able to find a clean desk with a working dual monitor display. Ergonomically, the office is set up to allow for individual adjustments, but it takes time to adjust and readjust daily , if you sit in a mobile space and have to change desks every day. You really have to own your career and manage your time to take advantage of the benefits well, but I imagine it's probably the same at just about any employer that offers such comprehensive benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Let people have cubes if they are in the office most days. Reserve the mobile work spaces for contractors and employees that are truly mobile. Make your employees feel like they have their own space to work and they will feel more invested.

    I worked at Intel Corporation (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great medical benefits. The noght shift differential is pretty good. I believe they raised it as I was leaving from 12% to 16%. There was also the 11% differential for compressed work week.

    Cons

    The benefits were good but the pay raises were slow in coming. They kept the pay as low as possible.

    Advice to Management

    You need to work to help your employees more. If they say that they can't do something and they explain their limitations then you should really look into helping them or they will seek employment opportunities elsewhere!

    Pros

    I had a good time at both of my Intel internships. The pay and benefits are excellent and I liked the people I worked with.

    Cons

    Intel is a huge company that places many interns so you may end up somewhere that doesn't relate closely to your planned career path. Culture can vary a lot by work group.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Cutting edge tech, innovation, creativity and informed risk taking highly encouraged and supported. Decent pay. Good benefits. Management takes personal responsibility for fostering learning, optys for employee growth and ensuring job satisfaction. Tries to keep work life balance in play even though everyone is quite busy.

    Cons

    Not enough people to accomplish desired tasks. Most find themselves unofficially working 24-7 and stressing about finding time to do everything at high quality level. Average wont do. Can be incredibly stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Stop downsizing. You are risking burnout of an incredibly talented and hardworking crop of employees who truly desire to see intel succeed as opposed to just finding a job to pay bills. Most of us bleed blue and will continue to do so for years to come if you are careful not to wear us out.
