    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good Pay, Smart Co-workers, Good Perks, Good Benefits. Very socially conscious company that is the #1 purchaser of renewable energy in America. Created the world's first conflict-free semiconductor. Spends millions on education initiatives. We make the technology that makes the world go round. I and most Intel employees are Very proud to work for this company.

    Cons

    Lots of Bureaucracy, Much of senior management is staid and stuck in the past. Leaders are timid, too slow moving, and often yes-men/women. Paul Otellini and his crew COMPLETELY missed both the smartphone and tablet market and the company suffered big time as a result and is still suffering. After Otellini resigned unexpectedly, Brian Krzanich got the top job and has done very well so far.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to and listen to the folks working in the trenches. Be Humble.

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

    Pros

    pay is above average for engineers

    Cons

    too much turnover on the management side. so you usually get unexperienced managers that will probably negatively affect your review due to lack of understanding. I don't like the "you vs your coworker" mentality. I creates issues and affects moral IMO.

    I worked at Intel Corporation as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I worked at Intel Product Vietnam. So this review is for the job there. It may be different in other branches of the corporation.

    _ Wonderful workplace.
    _ Good motivation, culture, events
    _ Lean operation
    _ Good benefits: car loan, stocks..
    _ International training
    _ Free lunch. You would have a lunch card

    Cons

    _ The lunch meal is rather small, but there are various in menus and it changes everyday. But it's free whatsoever. You may put more money in your lunch card to have a bigger meal

    _ Internship is rather good. But in long-term salary is not quite competitive, comparing with other foreign companies in the area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is quite good. But the career opportunities are rather lack. The company recruits mostly freshmen but they leave frequently after 1-2 years.

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    On-Site Medical Clinic, Bank, Gyms. Great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Will toss you easily when they don't need you. Regardless of how well you worked. Its a HR decision based nothing on job performance. Favorable criteria is given to those who are hired locally then if you were an out of state hire (Facility must be staff 60% with NM residents). Not necessarily are the best people kept in a RIF. The new CEO BK is a burn it to the ground and operate more with less type of personality. Intel will place profit over people!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good local management.
