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

    Pros

    Amazing people who are making a BIG difference in the world! Competitive compensation and benefits and commitment to flexibility and being a Great Place to Work!

    Cons

    Work many hours and always "on". You definitely need to be someone who is driven by this type of culture to be successful and happy at Intel.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up your commitment to flexibility, inclusion and being a GPTW!

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Bragging rights to all your friends, notoriety, the feeling of joy you get from being part of something relevant and successful. The benefits are great.

    Cons

    Lack of training to get yo up to speed with their projects. Then they expect you to produce a high volume of work in a short amount of time with no training. You can't "google" how to do things at Intel because it's is all cutting edge and confidential - so you can't get assistance online. The pay isn't as good as Microsoft. Managers rank employees via charts and graphs that don't tell the whole story. In an attempt to streamline/assembly-line employees and their productivity, they sacrifice trust. But perhaps this is just one of those things that makes all corporations have a bad rep.

    Advice to Management

    Please have legitimate technical training ready before a new-hire arrives. I had to train myself and then get complaints that I wasn't fast enough. Also, the way management ranks people via overly simplistic means is stressful. They have specific numbers they use to rate you

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

    Pros

    Smart and focused co-workers. Good pay benefits.

    Cons

    At will employer, employees must sign agreement that employment can be terminated for no cause. Can be argued that Intel used this to eliminate positions based on age. Ranking and Rating system designed to turn co-workers again each other.

    Advice to Management

    Need leaders who respect their employees and see them as more than just fungible parts that can be replaced without regard to skills or abilities.
