Intel is a Great Place to Work

Engineering Technician (Current Employee)
Chandler, AZ (US)

I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

ProsIntel has an excellent stock program. You are able to invest in Intel by buying Intel stock at a discounted price. This company also offer great health benefits compared to other large companies along with a sabbatical (8 weeks off with pay every 7 years of service). Intel also offers a nice 401k and work-life balance.

ConsYour education and experience far out weighs what's required for the position they hire you at. Promotion is not as swift as it should.

Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership needs to know more about what's going on at the lower levels to understand better on how to make things run efficient.

Used to be a great place to work, but has dwindled down along the way...

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Bayan Lepas (Malaysia)

I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time for more than 8 years

ProsPerks and benefits are good. Encourages employees to be innovative and gives them chances to showcase their works via internal technical conferences.

ConsEven though Intel encourages Work Life Balance, but in actual it is almost not practiced. The pay could be better

An Environment that keeps you thinking and working - if you want to!

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Hillsboro, OR (US)

I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time for more than 8 years

ProsA predominantly professional environment. You drive your career path and will find leaders to support you. Intel is a company with a rich spectrum of multidisciplinary opportunity. You can also define the right life balance for you, including flexible hours.

ConsCompensation might not be the greatest, tight training and certification budget in some operation groups with loose spending (training, travel, .. ) on areas that yielded no revenue in years!

Advice to Senior ManagementReward real engineering work more than you reward power point engineering!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Truely Intel inside

Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
Santa Clara, CA (US)

I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time for less than a year

ProsRange of products is wide. Company does not shy away from investing in interesting ideas. Compensates pretty well. Encourages to take risks. Senior managers appreciate young talent and ideas.

ConsIt is bit sluggish due to its size. You will always meet some unwelcoming people in every company. But I think pros win over cons at Intel.

Advice to Senior ManagementSynergize research and product teams in mobile division. Intel has purchased many startups, should allow a channel for current employees to join the newly acquired startup teams if interested.
