    Not many to speak of! Swindon offices aren't as nice as some others in Europe, didn't often see higher management except those based on site.

    I worked at Intel Corporation as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    I worked in one of the UK offices - can't speak highly enough of the culture, employees are empowered to take ideas forward. Friendly collaborative work environment.

    Cons

    In the UK the benefits are starting to lag behind - a refresh is needed. Working as part of a global community presents challenges but not insurmountable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cost cutting on headcount is not the best way forward, you're losing good people! Think more around how to save jobs and cut the costs elsewhere.

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great colleagues; I've found a consistently high level of skill and work ethic. People are friendly, with a great "how can I help?" attitude. It's a very positive.
    - Interesting work; we are solving some pretty interesting problems, and using very up-to-date tools, languages and processes to do it.
    - Low staff turn-over; people like to work here.
    - Good salaries and benefits

    Cons

    As a large multi-national, it is spread across many sites. You may need to work outside business hours and travel a little more than in some otherwise comparable roles.

    I worked at Intel Corporation full-time (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.
