Excellent pay and benefits. Company treats employees very well indeed.

Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Redmond, WA

I worked at Intel Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFantastic pay, flexible time off, smart and passionate people. Opportunity to live anywhere and work remotely for some employees.

ConsDispersed workforce can impact team dynamics - many people prefer face-to-face interactions with co-workers, but at Intel most interactions are over email/IM or by phone.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake the Employee Bonus adjusted by performance. Having a fixed payout regardless of performance ranking removes much of the incentive for working harder. Many folks aim for "just good enough" since they still get the full bonus.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Place to work

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Hillsboro, OR

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

ProsExciting projects, get to learn various things about the hardware in our everyday computers, lots of outdoors activities to participate in. Very Close to washington and downtown portland.
