I worked at Intel for 10 years, and it has really changed my life. I started as an RTL design engineer on a student visa fresh out of college this year I left, married, with a baby, and as a citizen. The work in California was very fast-paced. After moving to Austin, I noticed that work was slower, and working from home was way more common. I have nothing but great things to say about Intel, the work, the coworkers, and the benefits, all of it was excellent. I left because of the layoffs, but even that was great. They let us stay for 2 months where our only job was to look for a job, and for the ones that didn't find anything inside Intel, we were given great compensation to leave the company at the end of the 2 months.
Some people might backstab you, but I think that's a California thing. People are way more competitive there.2

Overall pretty chill, they try to care about safety and quality which most companies don’t even pretend to do. I don’t hate it which is better than most jobs I’ve had. The pay is decent although I’ve heard other companies pay more. The time off is one of my favorite features being that you can take the day off of work same day before your shift if you’re not feeling it or something fun comes up. Most people are generally cordial and nice.
Extremely corporate which can kill the vibe and make you worried about losing your job if you ever cross the invisible line. Doing similar PM’s everyday can get pretty repetitive and boring. Initial onboarding training is not job specific and about three weeks long. The actual job training is barely structured and mostly self lead by you asking your co workers how to do things.1
