    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good team, work culture, easy going. 9-5 job. Decent salary, a lot of company events, perks, decent bonus and increment in salary.

    Cons

    Many teams filled with a lot of managers, few good engineers. Lacks work excitement. A lot of work is repetitive. Managers really need a course in management, conducting meetings. No efficient way for knowledge transfer between senior engineers and college graduates.

    Advice to Management

    Get engineers to fix engineering problems, not managers. Encourage talent and throw out people who show no sign of improvement.

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Wages and benefits are good, and they certently know how to run a fab.

    Cons

    Intel recently pushed out a big pool of senior talent, making it difficult to build on BKMs and rise up to meet the next great push in technology. Also, their current culture seems to be fractured and the overall direction seems to be hit and miss.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the brand's core values. Develop a consistent and reliable message.

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits, cutting edge, some good people.

    Cons

    Too much politics, too many reorganizations, target on your back if you are an older worker

    Advice to Management

    Skills and experience aren't a bad thing and just because someone likes and is comfortable in a position that doesn't mean they don't fit into your meritocracy.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best people I've worked with are at this company.
    It is large enough that you can find a career that interests you almost anywhere.

    Cons

    Not a place to go if you want to grow or innovate.
    If you want to occupy a chair for 30 years and then retire, this could by your dream job.
    Employees are largely forbidden from using industry standard solutions (even if they are better than homegrown ones).
    Working at Intel is now considered a "black mark" on resumes (especially for software people).
