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

    Pros

    Large enterprise company with great internal systems and procedures.

    Cons

    Large company that makes it easy to get lost in the fray.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on building one of the greatest companies around.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Solid company, solid products, still retains the best tech talent (in HW & Semiconductors...not SW, obviously).

    If you are in their one of the focus areas (5G, VR, Data Center, AI, machine Learning..etc) you will do great. Otherwise old skool PC-related business is dying and so do the job opportunities correlated to it.

    Still (somehow) employs a big chunk of H1Bs and L1s and sponsors greencards (this may be changing now tho - thanks to new govt policies). If you are an under represented minority, you will be loved and pampered here (regardless of talent and xp).

    Great worklife balance (which may be translated as - nobody really works hard). The offices are dead empty after 4-4:30pm and nobody shows up before 9am. Some people never show up!

    Cons

    Massive company with lots of unnecessary layers, endless decision making, preparing for preparing for preparing a presentation for an executive, not competitive pay (the company knows that and will not change, sorry).

    Unless you want to thrive in semiconductors, dont ever apply here). The pay and opportunities for other roles (sales, finance, hr..etc) are below market average. If you are "below market average", you will be at home here.

    There are almost no "fun stuff" that millenials love (although HR say it is "a great place to work")...therefore, it is full of old-timers or below average talent. People seem unhappy/indifferent to be here...almost like slaves (most of them are H1B slaves from Asia, anyway)

    Almost everybody is trying to leave; but only a few can make it to better places. Many joined the company at its heyday decades ago, got beefy salaries and RSUs (many ownsreal estate in bay area so they dont really care about rent/mortgage etc) and now trying to cling on until retirement. Every year HR will be trimming this fat in every department so there will be constant stress and musical chairs games...getting more political and nasty.

    Advice to Management

    Despite all childish criticism, the execs are doing what they must: keep the company alive, thrive and keep the stock price up. This being against overall employee happiness is not a concern for shareholders. Intel is still the best "semiconductor company" to work for...period.

    and please fire all those unnecessary layers and layers of managers that dont contribute to anything. Fire all "powerpoint warriors".

    Pros

    Very friendly work atmosphere. The work hours are flexible as well which helps when you are an intern and juggling between classes and work.

    Culture is not as hip as some of the other big tech companies.

    Pros

    Talented engineers and people that want the company to succeed.

    At time there are long hours to get the job done.

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility - you could work from home, leave early, come late, etc with minimal if any oversight. This changed drastically in the last few months before I left, but it was nice to work for a company where management made room for life.

    Cons

    New leadership dropped the hammer on all the good things, filled manager positions with buddies, and left no opportunity for upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Let new talent voice their opinion and visualize their upward career trajectory.
