    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time

    Pros

    With such a big company, you can move around in positions to find your ideal role.

    Cons

    Alot of processes are Intel specific, and not common across other industries.

  2. "Nice place to work and pays well, but did not gain much experience"

    I worked at Intel Corporation

    Pros

    People were very friendly and I felt very welcome starting out. The company seems very focused on making sure work wasn't the only thing in your life and my manager was very nice when it came to things like getting time off to go to the post office or the doctor when necessary. This is not the kind of place where they demand you clock in at the right time every day or that counts the minutes you take for a break. Even upper management are very approachable and friendly. The pay is also pretty generous for an internship position and even as an intern you are eligible for bonuses. Also, very easy place to get to and to park.

    Cons

    I didn't feel very challenged in the role and I came away not really having learned anything, which is something I was really hoping to get out of an internship. There really wasn't any particular plan for what I was supposed to do and not nearly enough work to keep me busy for most of the time I was there. I was expecting something a lot more structured from a big company like this who take a lot of interns in. I don't really feel like if I'm applying for more jobs after graduating I really have anything in particular to put on my CV or to talk about in an interview. I will say that this was not the experience of all interns and some really did get some real responsibility and the chance to work on interesting projects, but I also wasn't the only one who had this problem either.

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

    Pros

    Deep technical talent base with lots of passion for their work and the impact it has on the world. Informed risk taking is becoming a positive action again. Great employee programs (new parent leave, sabbatical, vacation policies, access to training) Good mentorship programs designed to help elevate both mentor and mentee.

    Cons

    Reorganization tends to be frequent as evolution of internal culture continues. Staffing a project can sometimes be hard within key budget constraints. A big company so knowledge silos can sometimes form, creating friction in the technical processes and affecting on-time delivery. Some teams have many regular off-hour meetings, making work-life balance a challenge for some (depends upon individual situations and priorities).
