    Pros

    Broad, exciting opportunities for cross training and career changes at a bell-weather industry leader...innovation at its very best...amazing what the engineers can accomplish.

    Cons

    large, somewhat bureuacratic at times. Lots of lip service about meritocracy, but I am not completely convinced...often feels employees are not valued.

    Advice to Management

    develop further appreciation of employees in your compensation philosophies.

    Pros

    co-workers are very friendly and open for questions

    Cons

    manager was busy and give interns very low level jobs, which wasn't so great for learning purpose and growth

    Advice to Management

    Maybe not treat the interns only as cheap labor and actually give them some quality work to do. Especially if they are not undergraduates...

    Pros

    You get compensated very well as a student intern. You also get all the benefits of insurance. If you are lucky enough to get a manager who isn't busy doing other projects, you may get to do useful work.

    Cons

    If the team you work with is busy with a project they have been working on before you got there, you will really not have any real work to do besides trying to figure out what is going on.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to hire an intern, have a plan for work you would like them to do while they are there. Don't just make up something on the fly that has no challenge what so ever.

    Pros

    Great flexibility allowed - work hours and location usually are flexible so long as the job gets done. The only exception is for management roles were face time is required.

    Cons

    Overall job demands are very and high with poor work-life balance.
    Average compensation - don't expect to get rich at Intel.

    Advice to Management

    The works hours are too much so there needs to be better compensation or better work-life balance. Today, the compensation is average at best, and maybe in a recession this will work, but when the economy recovers the above recommendation should be taken into consideration.

    Pros

    Good work life balance and opportunity to learn and excel your knowledge. The company is truly committed to making this world a better place.

    Cons

    Slackers that complain get just as much chance at raises than the hard workers do. It all depends on the manager and how well you can write down a few accomplishments.

    Advice to Management

    Redefine focal. This is a process that not only cosumes a significant portion of time each year for employees, but it is also extremely biased. I once had a manager that would not take the time to have 1:1's with me. He hardly new what my job was until he had an escalation. Needless to say I never was rewarded what was due to me at focal. Since I have had managers that truly recognize the hard work I put in and they take the time to see the improvements and cost reductions I am saving my team and company. There has to be a better way to reward employees for their hard work, and a better way to cut the fat when employees are not pullilng their weight. There are WAY too many slackers that I work with on a day to day basis.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, Excellent ability to move around, on the cutting edge, managers are ethical and fair, annual reviews/promotions are based on meritocracy

    Cons

    Total Compensation does not live up to it's promise. job security is no longer a comfort

    Advice to Management

    Keep the old Intel culture alive and drill it down to the first line managers - this is the only way for us to compete.

    Very little in the way of a structured intern program

    Look into a structured program for interns at major sites (e.g. Santa Clara, Folsom, Hillsboro, etc...) and make sure there is someone to contact in person with questions!
