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

    Pros

    I came to Intel from much smaller technology companies, including startups. I had some concerns about large bureaucracy or disinterested employees. I was pleasantly surprised to find not-to-bad bureaucracy and committed, smart employees. Management team generally works to keep engineers busy on meaningful projects.

    Cons

    Still some big-company churn: Layers of needless "process" to get certain things done. Periodic required courses on company policy. Etc.

    Advice to Management

    Continue trying to cut back on time-wasting meetings.

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great place to grow your career. Lots of opportunity to change paths, careers, focus. Very data driven. Wonderful place when new to industry, lots of friends who work hard, play together, and have fun.
    Company enabled me to have a great home, raise 3 kids, put them through college, and set me up for retirement - although a bit early.

    Cons

    Changing tactics with new Qualcom management influx. Out with the older employees, in with the new diversity employees. Work-life balance tough, it's great when you are young but drives you out over the long term.
    Too much politics, if you are lucky to be in the right group, things are pretty good. But don't miss deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Next RIF, treat you outgoing employees better. It hurt them and the folks left behind. You need to build trust now that you've injured it.

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I loved working for Intel. I always worked with smart and courteous people and we got a lot of things done. Heck, we could even telecommute back in the day without anyone raising an eyebrow.

    Cons

    When BK took over as CEO, working at Intel was no longer rewarding. A lot of people were hired from outside the company (Intel is known for promoting from within), which isn't necessarily a bad thing but some folks that didn't share Intel values slipped through the cracks. That's when I got a new manager who turned out to be a micromanaging narcissistic bully. It was horrible working for him and he was the worst manager I had ever had in my nearly 30 year professional career.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. You have a lot of smart people working at Intel already who can learn new skills quickly.

    Pros

    Great Gym program, food onsite, good atmosphere, good coworkers

    Cons

    The regular with testing side of any tech company, the tagline is always do more with less

    Advice to Management

    Pushing employees too much will reduce their productivity

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Professional and diverse, at least in my area. Reasonably up to date engineering design tools, and other resources such as compute power were sufficient

    Cons

    Inertia of a large organization, and inertia of large installed software base means that if you want to switch to the latest hot software system it could be difficult
