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

    Pros

    Fun and supportive coworkers, lots to learn, experience working for such a massive corporate entity.

    Cons

    This was partly because there were so many people working there, but the importance of your individual contributions felt pretty minimal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can't say I have too much here, overall I didn't rub shoulders with upper management too much.

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

    Pros

    Training, personal career development (but you OWN this entirely), diverse opportunities, VERY fast paced environment. Compensation outside of base pay is great. Many crazy smart people to work with.

    Cons

    Work/life can suffer due to heavy focus on very demanding expectations. Lack of active mentoring for junior employees or those struggling. Base pay is tied to "industry average" instead of meritocracy. Work place competition can border on predatory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to "back-to-basics" and fostering more active mentoring of junior employees.
