    Pros

    Flexible, task-oriented, advancement available, good pay, good co-workers, not strict on dress code/piercing/tattoo policy.

    Cons

    Very busy and sometimes tasks you just spent months on get canceled. Intel changes with the market and priorities can change very quickly. So always expect be doing something new or filling a gap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None to give. Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Great benefits at Intel Folsom. Engineers are pretty helpful and understanding. Nice laid back work environment.

    Your internship experience here is what you make it. If you want to network a lot, you have that opportunity to do so. There are a decent amount of intern events in the summer that are pretty fun too.

    Cons

    Honestly, from my perspective I don't really have any cons. I have heard of some interns not have much work to do, but many companies struggle with keeping interns busy.

    Pros

    Tries to value employees. Lot of smart people working.

    Cons

    Groups spread out all over the works. Sometimes getting work done is a real challenge

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People working on a project should be co-located and not spread all around the world. MCG is terrible for this

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

    Pros

    I was apart of an internship program and my experience was okay. They a corporate culture that I am not fond of, but really good benefits.

    Cons

    I found that blue badge employees were aggressive towards green badges... I thought it was uncalled for. I also disagreed with how peer reviews worked. On a couple of projects we had more than half our team that took credit for most of the work, putting those of us who contributed greatly in a situation in which we had to justify what we had worked on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the way peer reviews are done.

    Pros

    Compensation, benefits, open door culture, work/life balance, lots of opportunity to advance if you try hard, sabbatical every 4 or 7 years

    Cons

    Location of offices, structure/timing of promotions, lots of politics involved, hard to move to new orgs or business units within the company, management likes to trap you if you're good

    Pros

    Great company to work for. I really enjoyed working for Intel. The culture is great and the people you work with and interact with are very smart. This company has so many opportunities so you can get on the right career path. Great Benefits.

    Cons

    If you don't challenge yourself you will get board. I saw some underperforms given the pink slip twice in my 2 year career there. So slacking off is not appreciated and underperforming will get you in trouble.

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

    Pros

    There was flexibility in work schedule and location. Work was never very hard as there was so much B.S overhead that what should take a week would take 6 months.

    Cons

    Too much worthless and irrelevant forced training, what appeared was necessary to make their lawyers happy. Always more and more expected with little to no compensation. Constantly let go senior employees and excepted remaining workers to just take up the slack.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the employees as the valued assets they are. Do not just through them away once they get near retirement, a RCG is never a good replacement.
