      Pros

      - Flexible work hours - Competitive pay - My team is great (although this is very team-dependent) - In my experience, if you work hard and are personable & grateful to others, others will be grateful back - Have always felt comfortable speaking up when a product is not going smoothly without fear of retaliation from management

      Cons

      - Like any large company, sometimes you are restricted to explore outside of your current domain; you tend to fill a specific niche - Progress upwards can be challenging as only 1-2 people on each team might get a sizeable pay bump / promotion each year - Constant re-org changes; you build up rapport with a certain manager only to have them leave (tale of a big company) - Pass-downs of products occur often and can be problematic if other teams are not responsive and you are on the receiving end

      Current Intern, less than 1 year

      A look into an internship in Intel NSG doing software development.

      Jul 23, 2020 - Software Development Intern in Folsom, CA

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The great part about intel is the core values and how they integrate themselves into the average work day. It seems that each manager/leader within Intel takes a lot of care and effort to communicate these values. I see this as a huge advantage for the company. It is great how they honored my offer as an intern with Covid happening, letting me work from home. I could see how they truly went above and beyond to take care of me. All of the people I work with seem to really love their job. People are nice.

      Cons

      Working for such a big company comes with some inherent bad sides. The company is so huge, that sometimes you can feel like your work isn't as important. The best way to deal with this is to think of each of the groups within intel as their own little company. I find it very reassuring. There are also such a vast array of occupations within the company, sometimes you will find people and have no idea what they do at all! Those are my only cons.

      Bureaucratic Decision making is not dynamic To move up you need strong management sponsorship. Not as much of a meritocracy as it claims to be
