    I have been working at Intel Corporation as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are a lot of learning opportunities here! The work-life balance is really great. There are out-of-work events like bowling, go-carting, golfing, etc.

    Cons

    Just with any large corporation it can be intimidating to try to find information.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to the employees you manage about why their assignments are suddenly changing.

    Major leader in the technology industry.

    I worked at Intel Corporation (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Before plunging into high risk work there was very detailed training that prepares employees to work safely and without interrupting production. The team I worked with was very amicable and professional. My manager was excellent and managing workloads and providing flexibility.

    Cons

    Intel is a very large company and so there is a lot of required corporate brainwashing and corporate bureaucracy. Although I came in during a downturn in sales, the cut-back culture remained long after short and long term outlooks improved. If you perform well and are constantly seeking advancement (possibly out of your current role completely), than you will not be impacted. But, if you remain in the same roll for too long you will be susceptible to the cutbacks that seem to hit business groups every 1-2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Create more consistency within the management structure for areas outside of compensation. The manager you have makes or breaks your career and your moral within Intel. Problems are handled very differently from group to group and mistakes can be reviewed from a factual perspective or as a means of creating blame depending on who is conducting the review. Provide more opportunities for advancement within a technical career path to prevent engineers from funneling into management whether it fits their strengths or not.
