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

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Truly a place that emphasizes the work/life balance
    Moving away from cubicles towards more collaborative work environments

    Cons

    Transition away from individualistic work environments is slow
    Company is large and occasionally multiple teams will work on same problem without knowing in-house solutions already exist

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire less managers, currently there are too many. They would be more useful in engineering capacities.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation as an intern

    Pros

    You can work with state of the art technology. On top of that the compensation is great. I worked at the Oregon site and loved the place. You basically go to office with 17,000 people everyday. Various kind of people are working having different kinds of skillset. People are generally very helpful.

    Cons

    Sometimes long bureaucracy makes things difficult.

    Former Intern - Front End Design Automation in Hillsboro, OR

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

    Pros

    I was payed fairly well ($40 / hr). The culture is definitely old-school, but Intel is making a huge effort to be a "great place to work". Overall, I'd definitely say it is a great place to work. Interns have a major upper-hand when it comes to getting full-time offers post-internship.

    Cons

    The projects I worked on were mostly toy projects. The size and complexity of Intel's organization contributes to a pretty substantial onboarding process, which can be overwhelming. There are great opportunities at Intel if you can learn to navigate the company.

    Former Employee - Facilities Project/Program Manager in Hillsboro, OR
    Former Employee - Facilities Project/Program Manager in Hillsboro, OR

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

    Pros

    I spent 19 years at Intel before being offered an enhanced 'retirement package'; one time offer never to be offered again! Intel is the 'best company' to work for and enhance your career, but you can't be lazy or out the door you go sooner then you think. In my 19 years, I had more opportunities then I would have had in another company due to my agressiveness, willingness to work hard, and wanting the challenges Intel offered me. If your driven, Intel is the place to be with strong top down leadership managing a truly successful company!

    Cons

    No Cons for Intel or their leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course, continue your success in the market place, and ensure leaders are adding value every day and growing their employees to be successful!

    Internship with Architecture Group

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

    Pros

    Very smart people here and friendly atmosphere where people are very willing to help each other out. The ramp up process is fairly quick

    Cons

    Compensation was not as great as I hoped. The Oregon location doesn't have much to do around. Naturally with the size of the company, it's hard to feel like you contribute anything

    Pros

    If you get into a good group. It is challenging work in cutting edge areas. Get to work with some of the greatest engineers in the world on the most fantastic things

    Cons

    Fully half of company is manufacturing focused and that is high risk to work/life balance, lots of stress, and expect a short career.
    Have had assure candidates that not all groups are like the manufacturing group on multiple times because negative aspects of that side of company. Good advice though is to ask.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership is changing at Intel and believe more tops down and less employee friendly. Less ability of engineers at lower levels to push ideas to forefront as a result.

    I worked at Intel Corporation

    Pros

    Coffee and drinks were free.
    Cubicles ended up being really nice, having your own space and privacy.
    Housing allowance was very generous, but it is based on distance you had to move over anything else (like cost of living).
    Lots of opportunities to meet people who were very integral in the electronics industry.
    Opportunities for different "careers" inside Intel.

    Cons

    It took a couple weeks before we could ever get rolling on our project.
    I did not have much direction from my boss.
    Sometimes it's difficult getting a conference room.
