    No issues with internship

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

    Pros

    Hour lunch break, free amenities at work for full-time employees, challenging but rewarding work experience, good pay for an internship, offered free training. Probably enough room to advance but it's hard to tell from just an internship

    Cons

    Very large company, often goes under restructuring; at end of internship, duties were reassigned to another branch instead of staying local

    I have been working at Intel Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Job rotations are encouraged. Get the chance to work with smart people. Machine like efficiency at wonderful, but at times can be cumbersome. Salary is above average, and people care about work life balance while maintaining competitiveness.

    Cons

    Large company, very siloed. Breaking barriers to do something great can be at times limited. Can't move as fast than start ups due to heavy overhead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more creative work groups. Think tanks, tiger teams to bypass the bureaucracies. But must have executive support in order to make things move.

    Pros

    They train very well, care a great deal about safety and provide tons of benefits.

    Can hit a wall if upper management care about degrees.

    Keep an eye on those who have the drive but don't carry the degree to prove it.

    Fairly good place to work, as with any big company, really comes down to the team you work with.

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

    Pros

    Lots of options to work on different things without having to leave the company. Many groups are great to work with, and compensation is fair. If working with the right teams, ample opportunity to work on interesting things and grow yourself.

    Cons

    Usual pitfalls of big companies - too much bureaucracy, needing to get buy-in from many people before doing something, slow to change and way too many people who have been there forever and resist change.
