    OK company

    Senior Component Design Engineer (Current Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    ProsAt intel, you can find work life balance. It is very hard to find anywhere else in semiconductor industry.

    ConsThe company is huge; there are too many people there, and the opportunitie to grow is very limited. Sometimes the skills you gained at intel is not that useful outside, as the methodolgy are different.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    silo-teams, experience varies a lot from team to team

    Component Design Engineer (Former Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    Pros- work life balance in general is good
    - employee medical benefits is very good for family
    - gender balance is very good

    Cons- too much politics
    - too many re-orgs and shuffling of management, but not solving underlying issues
    - not good for young people building technical skills because work scope is too narrow for individual contributor

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Internship

    Software Engineer Intern (Former Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    ProsGreat salary for interns. Intel treats the interns very well, good salary great benefits a lot of online training and
    other things.

    ConsIntel treats all the Interns very well. It is a great place if you want to work on embedded systems. But it would be a challenge to find an applications to do for the people who not really likes embedded and firmware.

    Truely Intel inside

    Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    ProsRange of products is wide. Company does not shy away from investing in interesting ideas. Compensates pretty well. Encourages to take risks. Senior managers appreciate young talent and ideas.

    ConsIt is bit sluggish due to its size. You will always meet some unwelcoming people in every company. But I think pros win over cons at Intel.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSynergize research and product teams in mobile division. Intel has purchased many startups, should allow a channel for current employees to join the newly acquired startup teams if interested.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to Engineers.

    Overall, good place to work.

    Finance Specialist (Current Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    ProsSenior leaders are very transparent mostly and willing to make changes to adapt to the marketplace. Intel also really does try to listen to the employees as much as they can and try to do the right things both for the employees and the community and the world in general (Intel is world class in ethics and corporate citizenship)

    ConsIt is still a big company with the pros and cons, you need to work to stand out to make your accomplishments known. Can be hard to move into people management roles. The culture can be abrasive and rude in some groups (which may be a good or bad thing to you).

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to be open to receiving feedback from employees and being transparent.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
