I have been working at Intel Corporation as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

As a contractor I am paid a decent hourly rate. Not enough to make up for lacking any basic benefits such as paid sick days though.
Some managers will let you work from home.
Intel looks great on your resume.

Cons

Green badges (contractors) are treated as second class citizens. This is very poor for morale. Also, most contractors get no benefits at all. Even paid sick days. So they work when sick and feel punished when holidays roll around. Poor communication from the top and vague objectives leads unnecessary iterations and rushed timelines.

Advice to Management

Intel attracts many talented programmers and it is a shame to see them leave for jobs that provide basic things like paid sick days. Due to the turnaround of people code is fragile and unreadable at best.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good company to work for. International opportunities is great. I worked with a world wide team, with testers and users of my software all over. Nice manager, we are now close friends..Just a wonderful place to work..

    Cons

    I returned to work as an intern the following year but received the same exact offer I received the previous year. Don't help with relocation except from giving a lum sum of money, which is ok.

    Advice to Management

    Nice job, just try to stay more competitive..
