    Pros

    Large organization with plenty of growth opportunities. Employee benefits are one of the best in the industry. From Bonuses to profit sharing and health etc.

    Cons

    Large organization and sometimes hard to navigate through the maze. Many teams with sometimes conflicting goals. Typical for a large company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the growth policies and current employee programs

    I worked at Intel Corporation part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Intel hire leaders, you are expected to be a leader even if that wasn't you title.
    -freedom to accomplish and to raising your tone and speak up new ideas and tgoughts.
    - management will let you try and fail and they will give you hands and support you along the way to make sure you are not actually failing.
    - owning the company atmosphere.
    - coworker support ideas and will help you out if you shared them and you still the owner.
    -

    Cons

    The company scope is huge (cross platform, cross OS, cross devices, etc), things goes pretty fast and you need to keep up with market changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, you have a responsibilities to make it better world.

    Former Employee - Senior IT Engineer in Hillsboro, OR (US)
    Former Employee - Senior IT Engineer in Hillsboro, OR (US)

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

    Pros

    Pay is excellent and the sabbatical leave (US) is unbeatable.
    Cool technology!
    Opportunity to work on projects that have global impact.
    Opportunity to work in a variety of locations around the globe.

    Cons

    Training opportunities within IT are trending downward
    IT is considered a cost of doing business and is always under extreme pressure to be reduced
    Many, many reorganizations that make continuity and follow through difficult to impossible
    Senior IT Management does not inspire or demonstrate real leadership
    Work/Life balance isn't

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want different results, quit reorganizing as a means "doing something different" - continuous reorgs ARE the Intel norm and they obscure the results (or lack thereof) of your organization.
    Focus on your people and the skills to lead them - the people are the the only reason that Intel has been and may continue to be successful. Quit focusing on cost as your raison d'etre.
    Focus on the market place - look at what your customer's want and find a way to deliver it as opposed to delivering what you believe you are best at and trying to sell your customers on it, i.e. take a Marketing Oriented approach to the business instead of a Production Oriented approach (Marketing 101).

    I have been working at Intel Corporation as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Most managers with with your availability/time off requirements. Your work is what you make of it, so if you wish to explore and try new things you can, and are encouraged to. It's very easy to get along with people and make friends which makes work not feel so tedious and mundane.

    Cons

    Big corporation, so a lot of red tape and hoops to jump through to get simple tasks done. Different departments have different rules and expectations, so there is no uniform way of doing things or getting things done. Work locations are not as open as they appear to be; for example, if you want to work in Santa Clara, you may do so, providing the group you work for works there as well. Certain job roles are only in certain locations, so you are limited to where you can work from doing what you want to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow us to work from alternate locations without having to change groups/managers.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, good training, well paid for internship. Programme was well run by dedicated team and allowed flexibility and responsibility.

    Cons

    Not many to speak of! Swindon offices aren't as nice as some others in Europe, didn't often see higher management except those based on site.
