    Pros

    Fast pace, all the resources you need are provided, lots of motivation provided! Well compensated, work is leading edge and changing the world

    Cons

    Worked like a beast of burden, little upward mobility in current organization, little consideration of people cost to achieve business goals

    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 have been working at Intel Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Solid total compensation and tremendous benefits. Only company I know of that still offers a sabbatical program for every employee. We had significant healthcare costs over the last year and never had to worry about more than the deductible. Low turnover is a reflection that they treat employees well. Work/life balance is great in sales, part of the benefit of having only a few thousand salespeople driving $60B in revenue.

    Cons

    Low turnover also means few opportunities to move up and highly skilled people all competing for those positions. The culture has waned over the years, but the stated values of constructive confrontation, regular 1:1's with your manager, and assumed responsibility are as good as they come. The CEO actually looks at statistics on the frequency of employees badging in (versus working from home). T&E budgets have gotten ridiculously tight since he came into the role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re institute the old R&R where you get rid of the bottom 5%.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation

    Pros

    Needless to say, Intel is a tech pioneer and remains on the cutting edge of Process and Microprocessor Fabrication Technology. The company realizes the lost opportunity in the Mobile market and is trying to catch up. The company's efforts to offer its manufacturing prowess to third parties is a bold initiative but will need to be managed VERY carefully.

    Cons

    The current Strategic Planning Process has failed the company. Too many technology inflection points (communications, mobile etc) have been missed or inadequately addressed

    Pros

    Benefit package is very competitive compared to similar companies. Intel has robust training regime for both new hire and seasoned staff. Great emphasis on work-life balance.

    Cons

    It's a very competitive environment-hence survivor of the fittest. It can be stressful for people who are not comfortable in a competitive working environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most senior people have been with the company for 10+ years. A very good resource but at time can be an impediment to adopting new ideas

    Pros

    Great co-works - some of the smartest in the world. The benefits and pay are very good. I especially like the 8 week sabbatical every 7 years. Plenty of opportunities for growth and leadership. Strong company values. It's a place you can be proud to work at.

    Cons

    A lot of cross-site / cross-geo teams. This has pros and cons but definitely impacts work life balance. Travel opportunities abound.

    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 !
