    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology, good benefits (health insurance, sabbatical, etc)

    Cons

    Poor direction by management, no clear cut corporate strategy. Cutbacks for the sake of cutbacks, diversity for the sake of diversity. Hard to believe how much the culture has worsened over the past few years. Employee morale is at an all time low. Constant risk of layoffs or redeployment.

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting billions of dollars acquiring companies trying to redefine the brand., only for it to fizzle out in a year or two. Stick with what we are and regain our competitive advantage.

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, cutting edge technology, sabbatical

    Cons

    Too much time spent with politics, processes, and meetings. No real advancement path in engineering; after a few years you'll be expected to only manage, plan, and schedule. They would rather replace you with new college grads.

    Advice to Management

    Give a path to people that like to do engineering work and not management and project planning.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits make it hard to leave.

    Cons

    Will take advantage of hard workers. Same pay, same title, same job, but because you do what it takes to ensure your group, team, and boss all look good, you will endure additional restrictions like trying to schedule time off. Basically your boss will come to solely rely on you to do everything anyone else is not doing what they are supposed to. Its so bad that you'll be only allowed to take days off only if one of the other hard workers hasn't scheduled a day off. And from what I've seen that equates to only about 20% of the team. So now you have the normal "no more than 3 people off at a time (from the whole group of 20)" AND "no more than 1 person off from the group of hard workers (approx 4 people including yourself)".

    Advice to Management

    Your supposed to reward your hard workers, not punish them. That is why we do it. That is why we don't just coast by. All your doing is going to make us quit or get fired because we have to call in sick just to take a day off. Sorry we care about making you look good. I guess what we are really doing is covering for your poor management skills. Which unfortunately appear to be so poor that you can't even see the near future of what happens when you do this to your hard workers.

    I worked at Intel Corporation as an intern

    Pros

    As an intern, I learned a lot of valuable information that will help me later on in my career. My supervisor helped me every step of the way and presented me with incredible opportunities whenever possible

    Cons

    The company dynamic is very individualistic and competitive. There isn't much large scale teamwork that makes you feel part of a team.
