    Pros

    Great pay. Looks great on resume. Worked on interesting product. Loved the location. Co-workers were cooperative and fun to work with.

    Cons

    I work in software and Intel is not good (yet) in software engineering. They do not have good practices in place. Requirements are vague and untestable.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt good software engineering practices (agile). Don't let hardware engineer decide how to design software...it's a completely different ball game!

    Pros

    Interns are treated like regular employees. Lots of great projects to choose from, and opportunity to drive and own some pretty interesting segments.

    Cons

    None that I could think of, perhaps the fact that campuses are located far apart. However, relocation money is provided.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making the intern program so much fun! Loved the intern activities and chances to get to know upper management.

    Pros

    Intel's Fabs are the best in class. There is a great and fast learning experience.

    Cons

    RCG's -recent college graduates have way higher salaries most engineers.
    Grading&Ranking system
    Focal-performance review can get you fired...or below expectation...
    24/7 oncall work including nights&weekends without pay
    No work life balance.
    Turn over rate in Hillsboro Fabs is extremely high. Group Leaders and Area Managers and leaving the company as well.
    Hillsboro Fab hires mostly RCG's on H1B visa from India as Fab Managers are from India too. They will be stuck here for 5-6 years until get greencard.

    Stop screwing with people's jobs and lives!

    Pros

    Top of the heap when it comes to entry level salary and benefits
    Well defined parameters within which one is allowed to work
    Very manageable workload
    Employees conduct themselves according to company values

    Cons

    Without post baccalaureate education, being promoted is virtually impossible

    Advice to Management

    Take risks (as per Intel company values) by allowing driven individuals to prove themselves without having a terminal degree. Keep your employees informed of current business strategies.

    Pros

    Intel innovates technically in the US. They are industry leaders in certain areas, particularly manufacturing and high end processor design. They are capable of reinventing themselves when markets deem it necessary. There are tons of talented people working there.

    Cons

    Too many people. Everything becomes a battle for territory. Many jobs are extremely narrowly defined. Work culture can be downright hostile. As with any big company you need the right manager, the right position, and the right group to get a good experience.

    Pros

    Intel is very solid company. Great history and products. Very strong culture and employees who genuinely care. Benefits are very good.

    Cons

    Intel is not for the faint of heart. it is a very demanding work environment. Due to the performance evaluation systems, no one ever seems to not to work for fear of a peer out working them

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that corporate success is spread equitably across the company. Shareholders are critical points of influence, it's the employees that makes everything possible.

    Pros

    The job was a very good place to learn about manufacturing, however the environment was not very flexible with regards to your personal life

    Cons

    Terrible work life balance. I often worked all weekend and typically throughout the night. Intel may be better outside of a manufacturing environment

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to make your employees personal life not a distraction to their work life. You won't retain talented people if you continue to make them work every weekend.
