I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

* Quarterly/social/celebration events, free fruit and drinks.
* Decent bonus and 401(k) contribution when the company is performing well.
* Good work/life balance and advancement opportunities (at least in tech track) if you have a good manager.

Cons

Like most other large companies,
* Different groups will have vastly different work experiences.
* Bad/indifferent managers can make life miserable and are very difficult to get rid of.
* Compensation goes down when corporate profits go down.
* Politics, especially between geos, slows down engineering work.

Other Employee Reviews for Intel Corporation

  1. "Long-time employee"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Great pay & benefits, including profit sharing, health care, schedule flexibility (when the job type permits), fitness centers & on-site cafeterias (at larger site lcoations), encouragement to participate in community volunteerism. Support of professional & technical training. Company culture is founded on six primary values.

    Cons

    Recent management loss of focus on core values, decisions to co-locate employees and move work to lower-cost markets is affecting employment within the US and more mature European markets. Current emphasis is on expanding markets & gaining market share.

    Advice to Management

    Efforts to co-locate employees may cause a brain-drain, resulting in many months of lost productivity. You are doomed to repeat the past if you don't learn from it.


  2. "Great Experience"
