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

    Pros

    - If you want to work with smart, driven people... this is the place to work
    - The benefits (medical ins., onsite services, etc.) are nice
    - The pay is good when compared to non technical industries
    - Great place for those who like continuous learning
    - Onsite services are a big plus (health centers, gyms, etc.)
    - 4 weeks of vacation after 10 years
    - Discounts on Intel stock purchases
    - Senior management really does want diversity in the ranks.
    - Great opportunity to work with others on a global scale.

    Cons

    - The pay is only average when compared to other tech. companies
    - A 40 hour work week would be a pipe dream. I didn't mind, but if you have kids at home....
    - This is a big corporation and life impacting decisions (aka layoffs) are made at the corporate level. If you don't like this, you should rethink whether you really want to work at a very large company.
    - Generally speaking, older employees are not as desirable as younger ones.
    - This is a technology company, so expect layoffs every couple of years. Even if you are not impacted, chances are you will know someone who is/was which is tough as well.

    Advice to Management

    At the corporate level, employees are encouraged to rotate into different groups and roles to get a broader experience/understanding of Intel. In practice, this is almost impossible when the requisition requirements are so narrowly focused. For example, a Business Analyst in IT, has little hope of getting a BA role in Supply Chain.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, work environment, and ergonomics. Tons of events and fun things to do inside. Very diverse environment. Food court.

    Cons

    Very "clicky" groups. Tons of internal politics. Lack of direction. Idea's tend to either get looked over or taken by others for personal gain. Little opportunity to progress unless you "know people".

    Advice to Management

    Know more about what your employees/staff do in their job. Some positions must be filled to keep work moving forward.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Intel provide ample learning and professional development opportunities. The people who work there need to know hardware, operating systems, compilers, and things more complicated than say, HTML and Javascript, so you tend to find a very different crowd to that you see at Facebook or Google or other web companies.

    Cons

    Intel is good at hardware, and they stay close to that, instead of venturing out to areas that can produce a lot of revenue, such as software and services. This often creates an atmosphere of stagnation, and low morale, especially if you are a high achiever.

    Advice to Management

    No one knows how to use your hardware better than you. So use it. Create better operating systems. A better computer. Your partners (Microsoft or HP) won't and can't do it.
