Pros

You get compensated very well as a student intern. You also get all the benefits of insurance. If you are lucky enough to get a manager who isn't busy doing other projects, you may get to do useful work.

Cons

If the team you work with is busy with a project they have been working on before you got there, you will really not have any real work to do besides trying to figure out what is going on.

Advice to Management

If you're going to hire an intern, have a plan for work you would like them to do while they are there. Don't just make up something on the fly that has no challenge what so ever.

    Pros

    Intel has great benefits and, depending on what group you are in, give you a lot of flexibility and respect. I love the "about three weeks of vacation per year" and the fact that no one is tracking my hours. They care if I get my job done, not if I left fifteen minutes early. Work can be challenging (in a good way) and I have worked with some of the smartest and most competent people I have ever met.

    Cons

    Those who can't do sometimes wind up managing. And as a software engineer at a hardware company you are a red haired step child. Intel knows how to make world class silicon, their processes and techniques are stellar. But they haven't grasped that software is different, and without software the best silicon in the world is just a really expensive doorstop.

    Advice to Management

    Have managers with recent software experience manage software groups. Learn something about software planning. Include software in the product planning process. "Doing whatever it takes" to get software out the door with hardware without planning is not a recipe for success.
