    I worked at Intel Corporation as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    For a full time employee, you get all of the benefits you can probably think of, and then on top of that you can include a very good salary. The culture of the company is great, the people are awesome and fun to work with.

    Cons

    Intel plays a big role in the development of products, so it doesn't get the attention of the public that most up-front companies like Apple do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's great.

    Intel is a great company. Benefits are great, the people you work with are sharp, talented, and high achievers. I really appreciate the way they take care of their employees.

    All big companies have their challenges. Intel is a big multi-national company, but they work hard to be respectful and to utilize technology to enhance communication across groups, cultures, and geographies.

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

    Pros

    You get to work on leading edge technology products. Fast paced environment that always offers new learning opportunities. You get to be a part of products that really do change our world.

    Cons

    No down time between the rush to get the next new product to market tends to burn people out working long hours all the time. The annual review process promotes a dog eat dog environment as their ranking method will force below expectations reviews on some people that are doing all aspect of there jobs simply because there are others that are doing more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to moral of the lower grade engineers.

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Intel funded our startup division Intel Media and eventually spun it off to Verizon.

    Intel made sure we had the right talent and resources to really innovate.

    Fantastic benefits, ESPP, stock grants, bonuses, work/life balance. I really am proud to say I worked for Intel.

    There is a employee cash bonus and accelerator.

    The culture is that of get it exactly right and be respectful of others.

    Cons

    Intel really missed on the mobile window and is now trying to catch up. The stock performance really reflects that. Intel is a great, long term place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While I wish they had retained our TV endeavors, I completely respect Mr. Krzanich's direction to put investment towards wearable and mobile chips.

    Also, continue to move to a meritocracy based performance model to reward individuals for great work.

    At some of Intel's manufacturing organization, the leadership team needs to pay more attention to work-life balance.
