    Pros

    it is one of the most challenging places I have ever worked at. You need to be an expert on everything in your are, including those areas you may not be an expert in. So study fast.

    Cons

    Intel can take over your life. We try to practice Work Life Balance, but that is not always successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People have lives outside of the company, it is good to remember that.

    I worked at Intel Corporation as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The work environment is really friendly with managers and mentors taking great care of interns. Giving them complete responsibility of the project for the quarter. Had an exciting, challenging and rewarding experience.
    There is always someone with expertise in each and every field in the tech space. Lots of opportunities for personal growth and exploring different options within the company itself ! Finding employees with more than 15-20 years at Intel is pretty common, just shows how satisfactory the experience is at Intel

    Cons

    Cant think of any apart from better sporting facilities !

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    On-Site Medical Clinic, Bank, Gyms. Great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Will toss you easily when they don't need you. Regardless of how well you worked. Its a HR decision based nothing on job performance. Favorable criteria is given to those who are hired locally then if you were an out of state hire (Facility must be staff 60% with NM residents). Not necessarily are the best people kept in a RIF. The new CEO BK is a burn it to the ground and operate more with less type of personality. Intel will place profit over people!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good local management.

    I worked at Intel Corporation as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Intel is a very professional company. They are working on exciting projects and there is lots of room for career growth. People there are generally pretty smart and reasonable. The work arrangements are reasonable and desirable.

    Cons

    Like any big company, Intel suffers from bureaucracy and management problems. People have their own agendas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I loved working here. The company for the most part does its job well. There are probably some organizational changes to make the company more agile and modern, but those are hard problems to fix.

    Pros

    pay is above average for engineers

    Cons

    too much turnover on the management side. so you usually get unexperienced managers that will probably negatively affect your review due to lack of understanding. I don't like the "you vs your coworker" mentality. I creates issues and affects moral IMO.
