    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work was often interesting, partly because the designs were technically challenging and the products were going to make a big impact in the market. The design tools were good, though not always the best. The rest of the design staff was of pretty high quality, as were the research groups. Pay was good for those with good reviews, very good for those doing well in senior engineering levels, but only so-so otherwise.

    Cons

    Groups in different parts of the world (and different parts of the US) have to collaborate often, and it's hard to keep trust between people who don't know each other. Inter-group politics can be nasty. Sometimes the strategic decisions by top management were mystifying, but that's probably true in all large companies.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    You get to work alongside some very smart people.

    Cons

    Sometimes it seems that even seemingly simple tasks end up taking a long time to accomplish due to various loopholes and variety of on-site contractors.

    Ok compensation, global focus, local attention scarce

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Compared to other tech companies locally, the pay is ok. If you focus global projects or accounts, available resources are great. More work than contract hours would indicate, which explains the slightly elevated compensation.

    Cons

    Most resources are dedicated to big US and Asian customers and their needs. Fringe customers and localized projects you can forget. Lots of colleagues are long time veterans, and hierarchy can be fairly flat, so climbing the corporate ladder can be difficult.

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

    Pros

    good salary, benefits(bonuses), possible 1 day a week working from home

    Cons

    they took a lot of students, so not many got to continue after graduating
    treating students not all that good - fix my crc code, and stuff like that...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if u train your students well they'll become better engineers and u can have better employees afterwards.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation

    Pros

    Good worklife balance, strong processes, information sharing

    Cons

    Low morale in CA hq, low starting pay for financial analysts,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay junior financial analysts more, they should not have to bunk up five to an apartment in order to make ends. I left primarily because of pay. Archaic performance review system.

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This is a very competitive firm, likes to win. Comp is ok. People are very talented. you will work with the best in your field. Workplace facilities are improving and plenty of opptys to work in different parts of the company

    Cons

    Not really a lot of cons. It's a big company, and just depending on where you are, sometimes decisions can be slow. Normal for any big company. Intel is relatively agile.
