    Pros

    Benefits, challenging work, great co-workers. Work/life balance is encouraged, but so is working long and hard hours as needed.

    Cons

    Going through some cultural changes, along with business changes. Some of the commitment to employees from the past is weakening.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the talk when it comes to valuing employees and treating them with respect. Keep one on the past and how the company demonstrated their commitment to their employees during the boom and lean times in Intel's storied past. Don't be too hasty to change for sake of saving a buck, as you may end up with knowledge base attrition that will cost you more in the long run.

    Great Place to Work

    I have been working at Intel Corporation as a contractor

    Pros

    It is obvious the employees are valued. The work space is modern and you get the equipment you need to do your job. You have a flexible work schedule to accommodate your personal life. People's vacation requests are supported as much as possible.

    Cons

    It is a big corporation, so some things take a long time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not put people in the mobile spaces - too crowded, no privacy, no storage space. As an employee, you feel less valued.

    Pros

    Co-workers often go out of their way to help you with learning something new if they've had experience with it. My group personally allows a large amount of freedom regarding working from home, taking vacation/half days, and daily working hours. There is ALWAYS an Intel employee that is an expert in the thing you want to know. The trick is finding that person and nabbing them for some 1 on 1 time.

    Cons

    Office culture can be a bit bland if you only take what you're given. But if you find a group of friends (fairly easy for Interns and college grads) it can breakup the day well and keep things interesting. It's rather intimidating starting in such a large corporation, where it's almost impossible to know everything that's affecting your project.

    Pros

    Challenging but rewarding work, great work/life balance, high compensation. What can I say...planning to retire here.

    Cons

    Some bureaucracy that comes with any large company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to flesh out some of the old timers and to give smart, young, talented people opportunities.
