I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Know the cutting edge technology through training, meeting with seniors and learning from peers. Very smart engineers are easy to reach.

Cons

Personal career growth can hardly be triggered, and you are very invisible and indistinguishable. The company is filled with a lot smart people but many positions are duplicated.

Advice to Management

Let the engineers fully solve the hard problem before reporting progress. Let the engineers collaborate with each other.

    Pros

    Fast pace, all the resources you need are provided, lots of motivation provided! Well compensated, work is leading edge and changing the world

    Cons

    Worked like a beast of burden, little upward mobility in current organization, little consideration of people cost to achieve business goals

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good IT and HR departments

    Cons

    1. At Intel working 38 hours a week will get you the same pay and benefits as working 65 hours a week. New people come in and work long hours until they realize how fruitless it is, but there is always a new sucker willing to work the 65 hours. Your manager appreciates it as he goes home at 5:15 every day!
    2. You'll quickly learn that Intel pays 10-30% less than other comparable companies.
    3. You’ll only be asked to work beyond 8-5 in case a large project falls behind. Projects are understaffed and management pulls the schedule in all the time so the project will always be behind schedule and you will be expected to make their top-down schedule work.
    4. Average raise in 2011 was 1.5%, average raise in 2012 was 1%.

    Advice to Management

    There are so many managers just waiting to retire. They don't want to work hard, they don't want to change methodologies, they don't want to take on new work. They just want to start working at 9 and go home about 5. These individuals will stand in your way in every position and impede your career.
