    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Good work life balance, manager understand when there's a conflict between work and life and usually are considerate.

    Cons

    It takes forever to get promoted no matter what you do. Internally there's sometimes unhealthy competition among competing groups which makes work tough and efficiency low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should work on providing a better path for personal growth, rather than peanut buttering.

    Former Employee - Program Manager in Hillsboro, OR

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great benefits: healthcare, stock, cash profit sharing and annual bonus. Cafes, technology, and training opportunities are really nice.

    Cons

    Stacked performance rating and heavy layers of management make reviews high input with little value. Cyclical layoffs and then big hiring ramps. Lots of management layers and overhead can make it difficult to clearly see the impact of actions and as a result, everything is a priority. Senior management seems to struggle setting direction and sticking to it: cell phones, tablets, PCs.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set a clear direction and then take some tough decisions. It doesnt help to thin the ranks and then hire back even more employees.
