    I have been working at Intel Corporation as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of different kinds of projects.
    Very smart co-workers.
    Decent food in cafe.
    Relatively flat hierarchy.

    Cons

    Work/Life Balance totally depends on your team. Lots of old school people in management who think work is life. There is really no incentive for hard work either.... other than getting a pat on the back and hear someone say 'Good Job'.

    Excessive Meetings seems to be engrained in the company culture. Most days, at least 2-3 hours were spent in meetings. Everything is a 3-4 letter acronym and it gets old quick....

    Job stability is so-so.... lots of hiring freezes and cancelled projects. Death Marches are extremely common here as well as there is a major disconnect between management and production when it comes to software. Lots of projects are pushed thru at the last second only to be cancelled the following week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the excessive meetings, Agile/Scrumm does not fix everything, try to make the place less 'Office-Space'-ey, listen to your developers.

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

    Pros

    The office culture is good and there is not a lot of ego within the management. The benefits are great, even the interns got two bonuses a year.

    Cons

    There is no organization within the teams and Intel seems to think throwing more people at the problem will solve it. A lot of employees are underutilized and end up pigeon-holed into a certain career track with slow personal growth, if any.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dynamic, challenging, and ever changing. Educational opportunities, excellent vacation benefits, and a paid sabbatical every 7 years. Salary is above similar job functions elsewhere. Great people.

    Cons

    Pressure to meet unobtainable schedules is excessive, management is not considerate of their people, use and abuse. Too many decision makers in the process, no one will make a decision; must be by committee. Your ability to perform youf job is limited by the multitude of "experts".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your people and let them do their jobs. The group I was in is a toxic work environment.

    Pros

    Moulds your career with new skill set set and trainings. You can explore, learn and contribute sharing and gathering your knowledge with your peers. And most importantly great compensation with amazing benefits.

    Cons

    Sometimes senior management lacks proper communication with the low level employees on company's long term goals and projects.
    Too hazy with too many meeting schedules which sometimes make you feel apart from your work focus.

    Pros

    Rewards performance heavily. So if you happen to land on projects heavily invested, you don't have to worry.

    Cons

    However if you happen to join under staff and lack of resources project, then it will be horrible. If it fails or canceled at some point, then it will be reflected in your performance review.

    Pros

    Benefits, some work flexibility (depends on your manager), some people are great to work with.

    Cons

    SOME people are great to work with, others are so competitive that they'll make you look bad to gain an edge. Politics super heavy, managers can be outright bullies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tone down the bully attitude, recognize good work, hire more experienced managers who actually know how to motivate people.
