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

    Pros

    The company is extremely focused on employee happiness, particularly family oriented events, excellent work life balance and working hours. The work is challenging and you can ask to get involved in a variety of projects which suit your interests.

    Cons

    Location of Swindon is not ideal. salaries can be "too competitive"

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

    Pros

    They are very disciplined, professional, competent people and a lot of excellent project managers. Standards are high and the work is challenging. There is a culture of getting the job done rather than doing the hours and the flexibility of working from home was good in my department. I never felt like I was doing a boring 9 to 5 job, it was a lot of hard work but with the working from home it didn't feel so bad. My team was also fun and friendly.

    Cons

    Swindon isn't a great location and the offices are a bit sad, catering is terrible. Sometimes the company is too process driven which could be stifling in certain jobs. Not enough turnover which means the company doesn't learn from others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management decisions are not transparent enough. Too much emphasis on seniority rather than abilities and results. Be less Intel-focused and hire execs (and CEOs) from outside.
