    Fairly good place to work, as with any big company, really comes down to the team you work with.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Lots of options to work on different things without having to leave the company. Many groups are great to work with, and compensation is fair. If working with the right teams, ample opportunity to work on interesting things and grow yourself.

    Cons

    Usual pitfalls of big companies - too much bureaucracy, needing to get buy-in from many people before doing something, slow to change and way too many people who have been there forever and resist change.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and compensation including RSUs, quarterly bonus structure and sabbatical after 4-7 years. Good support of work life balance and flexibility depending on the role. Innovation fostered at all levels of the organization. New CEO making a difference in strategy, innovation and hiring top talent.

    Cons

    Typical challenges associated with a large company - bureaucracy, redundancy and slow decision making. Had become very risk adverse - seeing some good progress in this area lately.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Eventually received plenty of responsibility as an intern. Excellent company culture and vacation time. Great college graduate/intern culture

    Cons

    Internship started off slow, management can be overbearing at times. Not hiring very much in the bay area anymore, which is unappealing to new grad college graduates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retain newer employees by giving them interesting and challenging work from the start. Hire more in the bay area for competitive talent
