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

    Pros

    One of Intel's core values is risk-taking meaning they are willing to take a chance on your ideas and that they are open to new things. They also encourage their employees to further improve themselves and their surroundings. The company cares about your health and lifestyle and will run events to motivate everyone. There are often social gatherings of all sorts so that you can get to know your fellow co-workers. Intel has an RCG(recent college grad) program that helps new hires get integrated with other RCGs.

    Cons

    Management can be too busy to help with personal growth sometimes. Also, some full-time workers are overworked and asked to stay past midnight or to work on weekends. In contrast there are also some average workers who will take advantage of the salary work pay and leave early from work. Some of the events that are held in the company office can be distracting and might even be an interference.

    Pros

    The benefits package, and pay is quite nice.

    Cons

    I believe it is impossible to get a promotion (as a white male) while maintaining a good balance between work and life. All of the people who are promoted are either single, and spend all of their time at work, or are about to be divorced because they spend all of their time at work.

    If you hate your wife and kids, and love to work all the time. You can easily escape them here.

    Also, there are no internal transfer promotions. If an employee is in a group that is stagnant and not growing, they cannot join another group at a higher level and get a promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow internal promotional transfers, or expect to loose your employees to your competitors.
