    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.

    Great place to work

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. It is truly a company that you can start at the bottom and grow as far and high as you want.

    Cons

    My only gripe is hours the manufacturing techs have work. 12hr days and working at least 1 weekend day really cuts in to time with family and friends.

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

    Pros

    The above average pay and benefits that can't be beat, like an 8 week sabbatical every 7 years, and coworkers made this a great place to work.

    Cons

    Can be quite stressful. There used to be a lot more opportunity to move around geographically and within the company. Also had one year when I had 4 supervisors.

    Pros

    Lots of perks and discounts, great culture, fun people. CEO is doing a lot of great things for Intel. Specific to buyers- there is very thorough training and there's always people to help you.

    Cons

    Buyer role is extremely tactical. It's a good role to be in for maybe a year, but any longer than that is excess. Unfortunately, most buyers are stuck in this role for 2+ years so look for a next position as early as possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on career development. Don't just talk about it, follow through. Also, tuition reimbursement should be guaranteed. It's rarely covered by this department.

    Big company resistance to change (that may be changing), work-life balance especially on manufacturing side is hard
