    Cons

    Nothing much as such. But it's not granted that you will be converted as full time. Getting an interview call applying online is very hard. A lot of competition for one post. So nothing as BAD as such.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is amazing, they care about you as an employee and a person. The benefits: healthcare, dental, retirement, 401k, onsite amenities, and much more.

    Cons

    Working across geographies can prove to be difficult for meeting timing and scheduling. You might end up with 2/3am meetings; however, this is the nature of the technical field these days, so it is not completely unique to Intel.

    Advice to Management

    N/A, keep doing what you are doing in helping Intel run smoothly!

    Much like any big company, office politics plays a role in day to day life. Easy to get lost among 100,000+ employees!
