    Pros

    Great compensation: even after 6 months I left the company, I still received the RSU trading incoming, in a very generous amount

    Cons

    Team members are staying with Intel for so many years, so we don't respond to the market in a rapid pace.

    Advice to Management

    To bring more young people to join the business and engineer teams!!

    It was an exciting company to work for with plenty of talented co-workers.

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

    Pros

    People move around a lot. You'll often run into people who have worked at Intel 10+ years and have a new role every 3 years. Most managers understand that you have a life and enable it. The product and the work aren't sexy, but they're stable. It's a 30 year old company, but they do evolve to stay on top. Time off isn't great, but your schedule is usually flexible. Pay is fine, it's low for tech, high for manufacturing. Of course you'll spend half your salary on housing if you're in the Santa Clara office.

    Cons

    Boring. Slow moving if you want to make change and you have to get 8 stakeholders on board plus a few managers. Very technical, they have their own language that take a while to learn. Pay isn't great for silicon valley/tech.

    Advice to Management

    People need help with housing, especially interns. I shouldn't be making 6 figures and have to have 2 roommates. Flexibility on what office to work in would be huge. Especially an office in East Bay and SF.

    Pros

    Big company with great products and a ridiculous (high) market share

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Trim the fat

    Pay more and stabilize organizations
