Large corporation with lots of growth opportunities for FTEs. Contractors will not benefit from any of the Intel perks. Flexible hours. The newer, remodeled areas offer a modern and comfortable work environment.
Contractors are not treated very well. Perhaps this is where the bad apple got tossed in: NSG Group (Non-Volatile Solutions Group). A very impersonal environment. I was never introduced to the team, even after several months of being there. Extremely standoffish. Tech believe it or not is very poor and outdated.

Unbelievable support from colleagues. Resources galore and everyone truly does adhere to the One Intel mentality. Compensation is outstanding.
New hire training is non existent.
