    Pros

    Safe environment, challenging opportunities, encouraged to have a balance of work hard and play hard. Great compensation. Flexible time schedules for family when needed.

    Cons

    Separation from the greater Intel has resulted in isolation from newer technologies and shared knowledge. Stagnated management personel. Most have been in their positions for greater than 10 yrs and have little concern for moving or taking chances for themselves or risk taking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Install 'term limits' to management positions.

    Pros

    Support fantastic, career growth outstanding, Exciting and fresh everyday

    Cons

    Need to open up the recruiting process to people who have experience in business but do not hold a degree. They are not the most important thing in business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen a little more to what is happening on the ground not from your immediate contacts.

    Pros

    Continuous training and development of employees. Provides resources and tools to be able to do your job well!
    Hard charging, open communication, not very formal, fair to employees, encourages employees to openly give feedback, speak their minds and challenge their managers.
    Very process and systems oriented but espouses continuous improvement.
    gives you a global perspective.
    Culture and values is really very unique and strong. The values are practiced in all countries.
    Committed to safety.

    Cons

    as a global organization,working with different timezones can be tiring.
    sometimes inflexible(because of established processes) and can become bureaucratic because it's a large organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more flexible.

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

    Pros

    For a full time employee, you get all of the benefits you can probably think of, and then on top of that you can include a very good salary. The culture of the company is great, the people are awesome and fun to work with.

    Cons

    Intel plays a big role in the development of products, so it doesn't get the attention of the public that most up-front companies like Apple do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's great.

    Pros

    Intel is a great company. Benefits are great, the people you work with are sharp, talented, and high achievers. I really appreciate the way they take care of their employees.

    Cons

    All big companies have their challenges. Intel is a big multi-national company, but they work hard to be respectful and to utilize technology to enhance communication across groups, cultures, and geographies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Best of luck in the future. I really appreciated my time at Intel.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Santa Clara, CA (US)

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

    Pros

    Intel funded our startup division Intel Media and eventually spun it off to Verizon.

    Intel made sure we had the right talent and resources to really innovate.

    Fantastic benefits, ESPP, stock grants, bonuses, work/life balance. I really am proud to say I worked for Intel.

    There is a employee cash bonus and accelerator.

    The culture is that of get it exactly right and be respectful of others.

    Cons

    Intel really missed on the mobile window and is now trying to catch up. The stock performance really reflects that. Intel is a great, long term place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While I wish they had retained our TV endeavors, I completely respect Mr. Krzanich's direction to put investment towards wearable and mobile chips.

    Also, continue to move to a meritocracy based performance model to reward individuals for great work.
