    Pros

    Great benefits for your family, better than most companies. Sabbaticals with 2 months off paid every 7 years or the employee can take up to six weeks off with pay every 4 years. Employee can stay long term in this company if they work hard receiving good performance reviews year after year. Pay is pretty good, no complaints there. There are many great things about Intel's benefits, too many to list.

    Cons

    Company has a lot of politics and training is not a focus for new employees. As a new employee, be prepared to seek out information on your own with limited amount of help from experienced employees, mentors are hard to find at Intel. If employed as a exempt employee, expect to work around the clock with very little work life balance. Also if hired as a non exempt night shift employee there is very little chance of ever being moved to a day shift position if the nights does not work for you. Until the employee has some health condition preventing them from working nights, management will not allow you to move to day shift most of the time. Something to keep in mind when they ask if you would be willing to work night shift when hired.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Since I started working at Intel, my life has changed dramatically. I no longer stress out on Sunday evenings about the thrashing I may or may not receive at work the subsequent week! I look forward to work every day, and even take glances at design issues at home sometimes, not because I have to, mind you, because it crosses my mind as part of my normal day. AKA: something I just enjoy doing. My managers and coworkers are all people that I want to help succeed, and so my work has a feeling of importance to it that helps me excel.

    Cons

    As with any large company, the chain of command and approval for new features and bug fixes is fairly complex. Sometimes it will take a month or more to initiate change, especially with design. However, this can be an advantage, because it gives you plenty of time to change your mind about designs and/or improve your work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe some more in-house perks would be nice. The campuses are rather drab, not much recreational to do outside of running on an elliptical machine or playing foosball. Something like libraries, full gyms, a pool, arcades, batting cages would be nice! We spend a ton of time on campus and everyone knows, (or is starting to realize) that high productivity is not always determined by how long you can sit at your desk, but rather by inspiration coming from seemingly disconnected sources.

    I worked at Intel Corporation

    Pros

    Intel is an awesome company that truly takes care of their employees. Everyone working there is super friendly and helpful if you have any questions. They have an open door policy so you can talk to anyone in the company, which I believe helps innovation and keep an upbeat work environment.

    Cons

    Intel is a huge company. Some groups are better than others. I was fortunate to work in an awesome group, but I have seen people in other groups working 60+ hour weeks consistently. It all just depends on what group you are working in.
