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

    Pros

    Location relative to all other Silicon valley businesses. Worldwide campuses. Still lead in desktop/server-class processors. Willing to move around to other divisions if interests/skills permit.

    Cons

    Working hours, but that is par for any silicon valley tech company. Employee training. Employee retention. Huge turnover to other divisions when management doesn't listen to employee concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the concerns of people. Focus on retaining individuals. Make sure people feel appreciated.

    I worked at Intel Corporation as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Merit-based culture
    - Work hours are respected, overtime is uncommon unless crunch mode

    Cons

    - None that I can think of! People often say that the company is getting bureaucratic but the individual teams are very lean.

    Advice to Management

    To BK: Keep ramping up focus on your intern program, it's getting competitive out there!

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

    Pros

    My manager is trusting, supportive and doesn't micromanage. It helps that I've built up credibility with him over a couple years.

    Cons

    It is a very large company and it can take a lot of influencing and coordination to complete large projects given the amount of matrixed stakeholders involved.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that if headcount and budgets are cut, that there needs to be some reduction in the amount of work expected... we cannot continually do more with less.
