    Pros

    Strong and healthy corporate culture: ex. you get to talk to any body, nobody owns a private office, down to earth
    Above average benefits: good health care, vacation days, flexible hours/location

    Cons

    Low value add work everywhere.
    The company has been searching for new business opportunity. Sometimes it's frustrating seeing the stock price below market multiplier.

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

    Pros

    I was apart of an internship program and my experience was okay. They a corporate culture that I am not fond of, but really good benefits.

    Cons

    I found that blue badge employees were aggressive towards green badges... I thought it was uncalled for. I also disagreed with how peer reviews worked. On a couple of projects we had more than half our team that took credit for most of the work, putting those of us who contributed greatly in a situation in which we had to justify what we had worked on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the way peer reviews are done.

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They started the 12-hr. shifts with mandatory group calisthenics, done for about 10 - 15 minutes, an interesting concept to help prepare workers for long 12-hr. shifts of standing the whole shift.

    Cons

    Worked in an Intel 300mm wafer Fab as a Manufacturing Technician. Semiconductor Fab Manufacturing Techs were assigned only 1 - 2 processes to do for a entire 12 hour shift, and would not be allowed to cross-train into other processes for up to 2 yrs. In other Semiconductor Fabs, 2 yrs. would be adequate time to cross-train across multiple manufacturing platforms. It takes a very, very long time to become thoroughly trained in the Fab at Intel; they are way too overboard in their drive to be sure Techs know "how to do it right" before advancing the Techs. The excessively lengthy time for cross-training results in burnout and disproportionate competition amongst the Techs. For that reason, I left Intel for better, much more progressive Semiconductor Fab opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up the excessively lengthy cross-training protocols. Learn to trust and embrace challenging the employees to advance accordingly to their own individual capabilities, instead of being so rigid. Don't worry, you won't lose control of manufacturing quality standards. Quite the opposite, the employees will be only encouraged to do the very best that they can, resulting in highly sustainable quality yields and protocols.

    Pros

    Fun place to work. Not much work. They have a grey program for interns.

    Cons

    They have health benefits COMPLETELY. And even Dental.
    They even have 401k etc savings plans.
    They also are quite chill about taking leaves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to allow new talent and new ideas to come through.
